Can people who are paralysed go to the bathroom?
But most paralyzed persons need to do intermittent cath (inserting a tube into the urethra to the bladder) or use an indwelling catheter (one that is always in place, emptied daily, and changed once a month). Intermittent is used if the person lost use of legs. Indwelling is used if the person lost use of arms and legs. Persons who have hands-on help can also use scheduled bathroom times, as long as they can sit on a toilet seat.
