I am detailing my experience below to see if someone else has also been through a similar one.
I had the first catheter for 3 months then urologist removed it to see if I can pee. I had very rough 5 hours in which my bladder was pushing but not a drop of urine came out. In Er, a new catheter was put in , in a very painful and bloody exercise, that gave me uti - swelling my right testicle that took 4 weeks of cipro to cure. This catheter is in for 2 months now, and I am scheduled for laser turp surgery in November.
Question: when is your catheter changed? every month?
What size/type is this catheter?
Have you had utinfection as a result of changing catheter? If yes, were you given cipro?
