I've seen some posts with people talking about needing to self catheterize when they come home. Most of the posts I've noticed are with people getting anterior repairs and so I'm not sure if this is something that happens with the anterior repair or if it's more to do with surgery and anesthesia. Is this something that can happen when you have a posterior repair without an anterior repair? Just how common is it?
In addition to my prolapse, I also have problems with my pelvic floor muscles being too tight and it is excruciating to be catheterized. I don't actually know if I could do it. I'm in PT now and I am improving. I go back to the surgeon at the end of December when PT is done. I'm wondering if I need to make sure I can tolerate a catheter before I consider surgery.
