Due to urinary retention, I have been self cathing for over a year, starting with 4, 5 times a day, now only once just before bedtime, because my retention has improved. My urine has been cloudy for a while but I never had any other symptoms of a UTI so I just ignored it. However, recently, I noticed some white milky liquid discharge near the end of my cath. I just wonder what is the cause and how to get rid of it. Below are some possibilities :
1. Asymptomatic colonization, like Jim James often mentioned ?
2. Yeast infection ? Then something like Azo may help ?
3. Bladder stone precursor ?
Can you think of anything else ? Whatever it is, I wonder what would happen if I haven't been cathing. Would it worsen BPH symptoms by blocking the bladder neck outlet ? Did this happen to anyone else ? Any opinions and suggestions are welcome.
