i think the higher the number the smaller the diameter... ask doc. if so, try the 22. i use 5cc balloon 22fr bard but i use latex with silicone coating. the clear silicone dint work for me, they r too rigid and irrutated bladder simething awful.
same problem for me.
I agree. I use the 22 FR and the latex. I had the same problem with the clear silicon catheter. My catheter plugged up a couple of times in December, I woke up feeling like my bladder was going to explode. I realized I had been slacking- off on my Uro's instructions to irrigate my bladder 2 or 3 times a week. It's a pain in the ass, but it's better than sucking the goop out of the catheter/bladder with a syringe.
ETA: The 22 is smaller diameter than the 28, but I think the size was determined when the Uro originally put the SP in.
I sent you a pm, but maybe you didn't get it. Either that or any reply didn't make it back.
I think he is on the same page as you are. Seems like once he gets up in the morning, after he gets some fluids going real good, it starts to flush that stuff out and often just clogs.
so what is your process of irrigating? If you want, pm it if it will work now.
