Based on your history
have had an ileostomy for 46 years and a modified koch pouch for 33 years. i have never had any significant problems with the medena caheters. i agree that occasionally the side ports can scratch the internal tissue, but it is not serious. and i agree wholeheartedly with the reviewer who said it's a whole lot better than having to wear a bag! vitality medical is one of the few dealers for medena catheters, online ordering is easy, and the delivery was quick. thank you.
- easy to use & clean, can be soaked in cleaning solution and used for a long time
- no dislikes
Lightning fast shipment!
Good but not great
Catheter is easy to intubate, but extracting it from my stoma is painful. It feels like the side holes get caught on my insides and it feels like it jerks/tears as it comes out. I've never had a catheter feel this way before. I ordered 4 and have used two. Only one of them feels this way.
service and quality of product
Vitality Medical was extremely professional, pleasant and reasonably priced. I received my order when promised. I will certainly use them again and recommend them to anyone that wants great service for a very fair price.
Product use and affordability
The Medena Catheter "30 French (fr)" is hard to find and not very many health care providers or their staff know of this product. This catheter is somewhat firm and still bendable. It is hard to find and can be expensive. I found it here and to my surprise it is the ceapest I have found. They are reusable. I have bought a total 15 in the last twenty years. I have Kock (coke) pouch derived from an illeostomy. Many people try it and fail because for whatever reasons. I have had it for 28 years and it beats wearing a bag anyday ! This catheter is the only way to go when in use with the Kock pouch. I truly hope this helps.
