As I was lying in bed last night pondering my 5 months of incontinence after TURP surgery, it occured to me that clamping a Foley catheter might help retrain the bladder. In my case, medications don't seem to have helped (oxybutenin, and now I'm on Myrbetriq).
This morning, I went on-line and searched for "Foley clamp bladder retraining" and up came a nursing site, and on that site I found that iFoley clamping to expand and train the bladder is used for some patients who have been on a catheter for awhile. So I'm going to ask my urologist if they will do that for me. Did any of you use clamping before the Foley was removed?
I really think that the acute retention episode two days after my TURP is the root cause of my woes. Any comments?
