Hi. I need a bit of information please.

Why was the catheter inserted and when was it inserted?

Are the clots and the bleeding all coming through the catheter itself?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

suprapubic catheter re`inserted 2wks ago. bleeding and clots are coming through the penis.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.

OK. The clots are coming from the bladder and although they may be remnants from the catheter insertion procedure, if the surgeon doesn't know about this he needs to since there may be ongoing bleeding in the bladder that will need to be addressed.

Let me know if you need any more information
