Hi. So I am trying to get our house in order so we are prepared post surgery. From the various threads I take it that emptying the neobladder every 2 hours is required. I hope this question doesn't seem silly, but does anyone know where I can get a 2-hour timer? We are sort of 20th century people, so I am thinking something that is like a kitchen timer (or is a kitchen timer) that just buzzes/rings at you and can easily and quickly be reset would be best.
Denise - I have an indiana pouch and I had lots of problems with timing. Mow I have a watch that has a timer to set for whatever interval you want. It's called a Vibralite3,it will vibrate and sound alarm as you need it. got mine off the internet - works great! I have no problems with timing now and even use it at night and don't wake my husband. Lynda

I have a Casio watch (cheap) that has an alarm on it. I checked and it can beep every hour if you want.
But immediatly post surgery, and for a few weeks, he will have a cathater in place. You just need to remember to empty it. This is a pain compared to the leaking to follow when the cathater is out.
Just remember to keep a sense of humor about all of this!
