Suprapubic catheter

Posted , 3 users are following.

After having traumatised my urethra with some many catheters I had a suprapuibc catheter fitted on Saturday. Since then I've been in hospital with an infection and bad pain. Today I've woke up feeling extremely sick with diarrhoea.

I was just wondering if anyone else had a bad experience of a suprapuibc catheter? I'm hoping this will all settle down sad I'm a 21 year old female and waiting on some bladder tests.

    Hi, I'm not sure of this is how to ask, But my father inlaw has diabetes, siriciosos of the liver, and bladder, and kidney problems, well,he has to put in a catheter every time he pees. Tonight he said he put in the catheter, and can't pee,and it's been over 3 hours. Should we be concerned?

      Is your father self catheterising? If he is then can you ask him if he feels any type of obstruction when putting it in, and if it feels different to when he usually self catheterises.

      Let me know them answers and I can try help you from there smile also, how old is your father if you don't mind me asking?
