I failed the twoc again yesterday, I was able to pass urine which is an improvement from passing none at least - but I could only go in very small amounts and very stop start. I had a constant urge to pee.
they sent me home to self catheterise after doing it successfully before leaving hospital. I tried to self cath all night but couldn't get it in and it was very painful. I spent most of the night in agony on the toilet desperately trying to go with very small amounts coming and pain in my urethra like a UTI. I managed to self cath once first thing but 40 mins later had desperate urge to go again which i know shouldn't happen that soon if I'm empty. I was also freezing cold and felt generally unwell.
so I've been put back on full catheter and been given anti bis for for a suspected UTI. My catheter is draining full of sediment? Does that mean UTI?
im getting really anxious that in a weeks time I'm going to be stuck in the same situation. Can anybody reassure me? Has anybody been stuck forever with a catheter?!
what is the reason, they said its psychological and in which case what can I do to empty properly?
thanks if you're still reading!
