Hi there,

I am Dr. Gehring from Germany and willing to help you. There is a German site where you have to answer some questions and then they will suggest you the perfect catheter ( I hope you speak a bit of German, otherwise I will help you) You will only have to fill in a Zip Code and an email address. I hope they will answer you even if you are in Holland. If not use any German Zip Code near the border (i.e. Kleve 47533) and see if they send their suggestion to a Dutch Email address.

https://www.prolife-kontinenz.expert/welcome/katheterfinden?gclid=CjwKCAjw4sLVBRAlEiwASblR-6zCDMKh6bQ8BcwnjTLuakmF2DkkOy8-W43_9uyv1gT-YBEaIbP-zhoCxZIQAvD_BwE

This is one possibility. The other, better one is to see your urologist and have him make a suggestion. Some good brands are LoFric, Hollister or Coloplast. You may need about 10 to 16 Charr, the length depends on the lenght of your urethra.

You see that your anatomy decides what you will need. If you can't see an urologist quickly enough start wit 12 Charr (it just takes longer when your catheter is too small).

I wish you good luck! A positive rating or my help by clicking 5 stars would be appreciated. Tot siens!

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
