Do you think 800cc of urine is too much? This was the amount of urine I cathed when I woke up today. Will it affect the kidneys or bladder?

Don't know. When I was in Re-Hab I cathed about 1700 cc's one night. I got hollered at the next day for not keeping my intake of liquids below 2 liters. It'll just stretch your bladder out. What you might be concerned with is Autonomic Dysreflexia. I get AD now if my SP tube gets kinked or my leg bag gets too full, just got to stay on top of it.

Tom occasionally gets 700-800cc if he has had a couple of beers and slept a bit longer than usual. It's not typical but so far we haven't seen any bad side-effects. As long as it's nice and clear we consider it a good kidney flush. :mfromg:

I regularly get 1000cc caths in the morning if I drink a lot of fluids,,,, late,,, and sleep in.

My urologist doesn't like it,, says there is too much chance of backing it up into the kidneys,,, but admits that if it's that common for me, then my bladder must be big enough to handle it.

He still tells me to drink less at night. I guess that is why I pay him,,, to get a knowledgable opinion,,,, so ,,,, sometimes I try to do what he says,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,sometimes!!!!

Yeah, you gotta watch that pressure backing up on the kidneys. An occasional 800mls isn't likely to get anyone too excited but don't let it happen too often would probably be good advice. In addition to kidneys, there is a danger of bladder stretch which can result in a less efficient bladder but you'd be pushing for higher than 800.

the kidneys is one thing...but if you stretch out your bladder too much, there's a greater risk of getting UTIs. I was told once the bladder stretches out, the shrivels and folds can be containers for bacteria. Rule of thumb is 500~600 (depending on your size..i guess).

I regularly pass 1,000mls - any more than that and I bust a leak and fill my leg bag like an over flow. But it can be tricky finding toilets sometimes. I passed about 2 ltrs on Saturday at a company meal. Filled a 1,100mls cath bag and filled my leg bag too!

I always got around 300-500 cc's when I cathed, wow 800+? you guys must drink hella liquids. I noticed that my bladder would trigger and void on its own if I drank alot, but the norm has been 300cc's. I also noticed milk and coffee seem to make me pee alot more. I know the bladder can hold quite a bit though, one time I got nearly 1200 cc's after a night out drinking, it made me really nervous, but I felt much better when I cathed.
