I have been recently had a total hip replacement. Immediately afterward I could not urinate.
Note that prior to the surgery I did/do have BPH, and have been taking Alfuzosin (Uraxatrol). I have made 3 trips to the ER in the last two weeks. This last placement has been in for 8 days and is due to come out tomorrow.
The plan is to self-cath again. I tried that before. I was able to do it for a couple of days using red rubber cath, but ran into trouble when I tried to use some different ones I had been given to try. There was a lot of discomfort and then blood.
I am extremely apprehensive about doing this again, but seem to have no other choice for now.
