Good afternoon, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today

I am sorry to hear this. It sounds like there could have been urinary retention which can be caused by small clots of blood if there was bleeding. This can lead to needing to pass urine very frequently as the bladder is unable to empty properly.

The catheter is therefore allowing free flowing urine which can also mean removing it too soon may result in sudden urinary retention and a urgent trip back to Accident and Emergency.

What medication were they given please? And how are they affecting the Parkinson medications?

Trimethoprim 2daily his Parkinson’s nurse explained that his antibiotics would interfere with his Parkinson’s meds weakness more shaking and more difficult in attending to himself

Okay thanks, ***** ***** therefore speak with his GP to chase the urine culture result. This may show if there is an infection, what antibiotics is more appropriate, and if no urine infection, this can be stopped.
