I’ve had problems
February 25, 2018 8:28am CST
Not sure how to start time, I know I wrote a lot about having a catheter in and how it’s finally out, but I’ve had problems. Here’s me thinking everything would be back to normal but I’m so far out of being normal. It would be wonderful if it was. The first day of the catheter being out seemed to be ok but it soon went downhill from there. My bladder doesn’t fully drain leaving in an amount in which builds up over time. On Thursday it seemed I was back to square one, I couldn’t pee no matter how I tried. I had to self-catheterize myself not the nicest of things to do. It’s been very painful and leaving not feeling too good afterwards. Once to empty your bladder you take the catheter out and throw away, they are, once use only. It seems that I could be doing that for the next few months until the meds finally soften and reduce my prostate by then hopefully I can go normally. I do really hate getting old, it’s not fun!

I wish you the best of luck in getting through this ordeal. Catheters are not the most pleasant feeling things in the world. I really wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. I hope this situations goes quickly for you and you can get back to normal life.

This is awful to hear I'm so sorry Having to do that so often is going to be awful. Will they have you take an antibiotic from having to put the catheter in all the time? I remember after they did my scope I had to take an antibiotic to prevent another uti.
