Acute Urinary Retention, have you suffered it?
Unfortunately it happened to me, for the first time, earlier this month, just as I was at the hospital waiting for my Urolift. I was sent home with a catheter and am awaiting a TWOC (trial without catheter)
If you have suffered AUR I would be interested to know what happened when the catheter was removed. In particular, how long did you have the catheter following AUR and could you pee okay when it was taken out? I have read that having a catheter may cause some incontinence after its removal, did you suffer from this, if so, how severe was it and how long did it last?
Personally I cannot understand why one needs to have a catheter in place for two weeks, I feel it is too long and that the longer it is is place the more complications it can cause.
I am hoping that this episode of AUR is a one off and I can go ahead with the Urolift.
Thanks, in advance, for any insight.
