A question concerning paraplegia.

I write about a character who became paraplegic in an accident. Aside from the actual injury that made him paraplegic, he also suffered burns to his stomach and chest that were caused when the original wound was cauterized to stop the bleeding; he doesn't appear to have suffered any infection or anything of that ilk from them. I'm now writing about his recovery.

Considering his injuries, how long after the original injury would he start learning to be 'self-sufficient' with catheters?

What sort of lubricant would they give him for use with the catheter? He's in a military hospital in the early 1900s in a world that closely parallels to ours.

Thanks in advance.
