What kind of operation did you have? What have the urology surgeons told you about the catheter? Have you any follow up appointment with them
What was the urological procedure please
Oh sorry. Not aware of it
So sometimes intermittent self catheterization can be used. Have you discussed with your urologist. Also why do you need long term catheter? They have enlarged the opening. Can you shed more light please
The catheter is a foreign body and it is bound to cause infections. Micro organisms can grow on the catheter tube. This happens despite the catheter being inserted using sterile techniques.
You need a clear plan. Thisbplan can come only from the urologists. It was unfortunate that covid happened. Now all the consultations are opened , so it should be a bit better to get follow up appointments.
In the meal while you can try some cranberry juice while helps in maintaining the urine environment. Also yogurt helps.
Good. Hopefully a clear plan can be worked out. Make sure you give all the details of the surgery to the urologist. All the best. Take care.
