    Catheters might hurt outside the realm of childbirth, though. It might just be that compared to the rest of the pain, having a catheter inserted isn't that bad. I didn't even feel it (and I wasn't numb yet).

    I guess if we close this thread it means we have to open up a "Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration Thread"

    From the male point of view:
    I've had one 3 times, was out for one during surgery. It was rather uncomfortable for the other two I had. They were used to insert a scope to check out the bladder from the inside and were only in for about 15 minutes. There was a numbing topical creme used first.

    Ok, I just have to say that since you replied to SG's post, at first I thought you were talking about childbirth from the male point of view.
    And now....STOP! STOP IT WITH THE CATHETER TALK!
