    How to obtain Catheter Kit without ER

    I'm trying to avoid a costly and painful trip to the ER due to decreasing ability to urinate. My half-assed Urologists office is so short-staffed they haven't gotten back to me yet. They last said I'd have to go in to their office, but they'd have to order the kit. A Urology office that doesn't have stock of catheters?? Jeez! Is there any other way for a guy to get a catheter kit other than the doctor's office or Emergency?

    You can go to a local Urgent Care for way less expense. You may even find one that charges on a sliding scale according to income.

    Check with local pharmacies to see if they sell catheters.

    There are allot of places you can order home delivery of catheters; however, you do need a prescription. Maybe call and ask if the urologists office will give you one which you can pick up? You then send a copy online to the store where you are purchasing it from.
