My mum has an indwelling catheter and we have been struggling for the past few months with what we thought were blockages. However I have discovered the issue seems to be with the bags rather than the catheter itself. If we disconnect the bag urine flows fine directly from the catheter, however when we attach the bag it often stops completely and nothing drains into the bag itself. She is bed bound so only uses a night bag (coloplast simpla 2L). I've seen other people suggest putting air into the bag and have tried this but it doesn't seem to stop the problem. Has anyone else had this issue?
