    I go about 6 times a day.

    Often just thinking about going makes me want to go.

    In fact, I'm off...

    Not going to believe this :!:
    Surgery Prescription Receptionist phoned me this morning
    As catheter suppliers have asked for 2nd order for type2 of catheter to use when out and around in wheelchair.

    Asking me WHY!! Do i need this as already have the others now ?
    Told her easier to use when out and around public toilets and all that.
    Asked cant you use the same ones ,Yes but more suited to use at home take up more space ,
    when out would prob need 2nd person in toilet with me. Nurses said i will need them ?
    2nd lot are smaller would only need 1 box every 2 months or so ,are lower cost than the main ones ?

    I Dont think we can do this you will have to use the same ones for everything .Brrrrrrrrr phone down

    Just come off phone with GP Asked him to Read Urologist Letter back to me :wink:
    Please can you Send the 2nd prescription off to catheter suppliers. No problem Mr--------
    then I asked him how many times he had a pee ,,,would not tell me :)
    Grrrrrrrrrrrrr


    No mention of test strips yet fingers crossed

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: at you asking the GP how many times he pees! Some receptionists seem to think they are Drs and know it all. I think my pee trips will be going up, just been put on a diuretic.

    Have been meaning to count but I keep forgetting.

    I can work this out logically, though.

    First thing in the morning
    After large morning cup of coffee (diuretic)
    Last thing at night

    So that is 3 standard pees per day.

    I think 1 or 2 times apart from that depending on how much I drink.

    Unless I am drinking lager when I lose count very quickly :)

    As far as I can tell from a very limited sample (er...no pun intended) women tend to have to go more often than men.

    Cheers

    P.S. SheWee is allegedly difficult (or impossible) to use for some people.
    One attraction is the ability to pee standing up when out walking in the country as an alternative to dropping several layers of clothing. Shame it doesn't always suit.

    I haven't quite been able to work out how to use it. I hope when it arrives it will have detailed instructions with it :oops: For me the purpose of having it is to use it if I get stuck in a traffic jam on the motorway for an hour or so, so it will be used in the car :? And I drive a Smart :lol:

    Bob - that's fantastic :lol: I had seen the programme when it first came out but then I had no interest in the object. So it does come with instructions then. I wonder if anyone would notice me doing it in the car... :oops: :oops: As long as the queue didn't start moving at the wrong moment :shock:

    My friend bought one after getting stuck in teh car when it snowed. I must get one. I hope it works the same way as other objects I buy, or appointments I book, as a deterent! If I remember my umbrella , it doesn't rain, if I stake suncream, it is bound to rain, if I book a hiardressers apopointment, becasue I look like a msll moving haystack, my hiar will manage to behave itself on the day of the appointment...you never know, it could work!

    I have a she-wee - never used it - but it gives me the confidence that it's there - and I never seem to need one when I have it with me.

    I pee more than 4 times over night - but only go 4 times a day - and I'm on Frusemide - a diuretic.
