Reply to "everyone list best trick to enter full/tight pouch"

I've had occasion to have some difficulty inserting the catheter but those occasions have usually been few and far between. First I always empty my bladder. Anytime I have a problem I usually try to relax by breathing in and releasing the breath slowly.  Then I probe around gently until I find the entrance and I use as much lube as possible. Eventually it slides in. I gently insert as far as I can but sometimes I get more resistance so I stop. If the catheter is in some ways, I will flush. Flushing sometimes causes the catheter to slide in further. Sometimes up to the mark. But as long as I can empty any contents I will empty what I can and then slowly remove the catheter. Thank you all for all the suggestions and tips. Have a beautiful day. Mary
