Even with a Catheter you can still leak or bypass slightly, so a small pad may be advisable. If you are having a Suprapubic catheter it can definitely leak more. A seat covering is unlikely to be needed but useful to have. A sick bag is a definite if you have had poor reaction to painkillers etc.
As already said bumps are a nightmare, a cushion to protect the abdomen is often mentioned. I never found sitting to be uncomfortable.
May have mentioned my favourite subject before, get some instilagel or hydrocaine for the eye of the penis, snug but not tight underwear to keep the Catheter and bits from moving around. Make sure joints are tight on the Catheter and bag. Nurses don't always appreciate how easy they come apart and don't always have the strength to push them together properly. A empty pop bottle would be useful if you need to drain the leg bag on the way back.
Is the Catheter being removed local to your home ? If you have a Catheter problems speak to your urology team.
Hope all goes well.
Just a thought, some of us create a conversation and keep adding questions or comments, it keeps all your info in one place and makes it easy to look back at previous events.
