To join in with those who thought the cath would stay out. I waited the week or so and had no problems outisde of taking the bag everywhere I went. When the time came, I got my exray and the evil cath was pulled out. about mid day after removal I was starting to bloat. I could urinate a little. I was out during the wee hours off the night dancing around trying to shake out pee.
Went to the doctors the day and they showed me how to self cath. That lasted two more days until I was back at Dr to be re-catheded. My hopes high for a good weekend crashed and burned when the new cath did not work correctly, about 1 AM that evening I was in the ER getting a cath installed.
It was all an education. The good news today I pee just like I want to. Not as good as some but not blocked,
