I was at work yesterday when one of the guys (Peter) started talking about going to the doctor and being told he might need to have a catheter inserted into his penis. It took me a couple of minutes to take my hand off my crotch and stop pulling a face from wincing so much.
For those of you who are lucky enough not to know what this is (or even luckier if you have never experienced it) a catheter is a tube that is inserted into the urethra, and fed into the bladder, to help you pass water.
Do you know what the urethral opening is so small? Because you’re not meant to put anything in it!
My dad has it done to him every time he goes to the hospital and I’ve been informed it is quite painful so no wonder he gets the hump all the time, I’d be in an even fouler mood if I had to have a tube shoved up there once a month.
Thanks to web sites like allegromedical.com you can now buy this kind of things online (along with other things like exercise equipment and even wound care products) and do it yourself at home.
If you do then you are very brave.
