Hi everyone,

Need some help and advise here.
I underwent URS and PCNL surgery towards kidney stone removal 2 weeks back and the doctors placed a catheter from my bladder through my lower abdomen. After 2 weeks i went to the doctor to get the catheter removed, and after removing the catheter i couldnt pass urine in natural way. I could get sense of urine passing through my urethra but it wasnt coming out. After many tries, the doctor decided to insert another catheter this time through my penis and asked me to come after 1 week for removal. What do you think is the cause for this? Will the urine pass properly after the catheter is removed after a week? Appreciate your help and advise

Welcome to Healing Well.

Most likely cause would be just from the trauma of the procedure and catheter placement. I have had problems a couple times after a normal catheter was removed and had to have it put back in for a couple more days.

Seems your doctor thinks you just need a little more time and healing to regain normal urine flow.

Take care,

I have had a catheter put in after block after they gave me some water pills for swollen feet. A few days later they removed it but still could not go. Over an over they tried an examinations they found prostate cancer. Now after rad treatments another out an in took place. Urge to urinate and can't go when out very painful and when in same pain but seepage now is pus and some fluid. Catheter flow is clear or coffee color from old blood from rad healing they say.
Newest insert is new size of Foley and i have tip pain too. I have noticed urge is when i seem to have a need for BM or gas or reflex from water on hands..why still blockage idk. ..pain is severe at times from constant ache to sharp pain to hot pain. 20 mg oxi does not help..only relief at times is laying down. What next? Turp? I also have bleeding hemorrhoids now too.
