So was wondering if anything like this has ever happened to you. I had a TURP procedure done in August and stayed over so they could flush the clots and debris from my bladder. The very next day around noon a young (intern, I think) Came in and said he was going to remove the catheter from me which kind of gave me a bad feeling because I would have thought the surgeon who performed it would remove it. To make a very long story short when he attempted to remove it, he got it stuck on the way out of me and I was in horrible pain as he pulled so hard, but it would not come out. He told me he would be back and left the room which seemed like forever, but was more likely 5 minutes or so. When he came back in he stated that the balloon was not deflating and he literally ripped it out and I swear I was going to have a heart attack. Well, after another surgery for a torn urethra I now have to go over a hundred miles away to have a specialist recusruct my urethra with skin graph from the inside of my mouth. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this or did someone really mess up?
