Hello. I use an anal catheter and it works well. The problem is that I cannot find them anymore. Even they place where I bought them don't have them anymore, they don't even know what I'm talking about. Its basically the same as an urinal catheter but bigger. Anyone know where I can buy one? Thanks

Perhaps using the term "rectal tube" would get you more results. I'm an old nurse and we used to call them "red rubbers". If the pharmacist or medical supply tech has been around for a while they'll know exactly what you are talking about.
A 30 Fr foley (urethral) catheter should do the trick as well.
Thank you very much. I always had the transparent one. I don't know of any stores (in the US or Canada) that sell a 30 French Foley. They sell 15 and it is way too small, are you sure a 30 would be big enough? Would you know of any places? And thank you so much for all the informations! It was a nurse who gave it to me some 10 years ago. I am adding a photo of my old one with a quarter.
Try Medena catheter. I used to have one and am thinking about trying one again. I can't seem to buy one without a prescription.
Thank you Deb C. I'll try them. I need mine now because the hole they made between my anus and my J pouch (inside me) is getting too small. I could go for another dilatation, but the last time they perforated my intestine. So I prefer to use a catheter and be super careful about what I eat (no nuts or raw veggies or fruits or potato skin, or mushrooms etc...) they all tend to get stuck. Thanks again!
