I am 71, I had two episodes of urinary retention in the past three years, the last one 24 months ago. On both occasions I was taken to A&E to have bladder emptied through catheters. Painful experiences! These were removed after 7 and four days respectively.
I am due to fly long haul in a week, and am terrified of the possibility of urinary retention on the plane.
My question is what should I drink and eat, and what should I avoid (including during the flight) during the next seven days to reduce the risk of urinary retention
on the plane.
I am taking catheters and cream with me but I have
never used these myself.
Thanks for any advice,
