    Oh, I thought you had surgery schedule same week as mine.

    Being from WI, I thought that free sample would have me more prepared.

    I cut tv off years ago... then i got remarried. I was done when the History Channel started talking about "Aliens". Today I watch MLB.tv and netflix more than anything on TV. If I do watch TV, it is live sports.

    My Dad Poked a Bit

    I dig the line "especially when I cath". I'll have to remember that one.

    Maybe my Dad had it right. He had a bit of dementia his last years. I had to take him to the hospital one time for what turned out to be a pacemaker implant. I tried to stay with him all the time, but of course couldn't and in spite of me telling everybody in the whole damned place that he was a bit 'forgetful' (I had DPOA, the whole nine yards) they pretty much ignored me and deferred to my father. Made for some interesting conversations.

    I ran home one day for a minute and they decided to discharge him. All he had to do to be 'free' was walk to the loo and take a piss on his own. So he got up, walked in to the bathroom, closed the door and stood over the toilet to let her fly. Then he looked down and saw this big snake sticking out of his most precious appendage, said WTH and yanked that sucker out.

    I got back and they had him all bandaged up, still lotsa blood down there. I said "Why the heck did you do that"? So he told me the story, then concluded by saying "There was blood all over the toilet, all over the walls, even all over the nurses and everywhere but on me"! The nurse who overheard this story looked at me, shook her head and lip-synched "it was all over him, too". As if I didn't know...

    So does he use a catheter because he can't pee? How did he get like that? How do I avoid getting like that? Please tell me, I'll do anything to avoid a catheter up the old feller. Had it done to me once in hospital by some sadistic nurse who said it was SOP that if you don't pee within a certain time after an operation, up it goes. Give me an hour or two, I said, I can feel it coming. But she wasn't taking no for an answer.

    The fun of shooting your TV has gone down hill since the introduction of the flat screen television. There's no real "bang" if there's no huge vacuum tube exploding.

    Wow goonie, you've been doing some (panicked?) research!

    I also would just as soon skip this "cowboy" experience

    No panic, but to be honest I've had fairly 'low flow' all my life so it's possible I'll be in the high-risk category as I get older. Rather do what I can now.

    Has anyone in this thread watched "How to use a catheter" video YouTube?

    Don't quote me on this but I think for men the problem lies in the prostate and it can be removed to eliminate this. I suppose some instances the prostate can't be removed and the catheter is the answer.
