This is sort of medical/nursing question...I am a critical care nurse and had to put a foley catheter in a conscious male patient last night who had to lay flat. Foleys are standard size, 16 french for adult males. Anyway my patient had a very thick penis, and when I passed the catheter it was "loose" (side to side), like the guy had a very big urethra, and urine was coming out around the catheter as well as thru it. I know the catheter was in place. I waited and it kept draining that way, so then just pulled it. He had never had a foley before so he didn't know if this was normal for him. Rather than try to hunt down another size, I just had him use a urinal (lying down is tough for most men). I've never had this happen in my years of experience...any physicians, or nurses care to comment? Or members with a wide urethra?
