Did you have any pain when your Foley in-dwelling urinary catheter was removed?

Posted , 1 user is following.

Mine was painful.  Worse, my penis has a laceration below and under the urethra opening apparently from the catether removal.

A nurse said I should ask for an anti-anxiety injection before removal.

I can't take too many catheter in/outs.  How long do they last before they need to be replaced?

Blessings and thank you in advance for your information.
