Has anybody else had the catheter slide in and out of the penis like I have? It is moving almost an inch and I'm terrified of bursting it
I had the same thing. It was normal. Several times a day, I would apply this antibiotic cream that the hospital gave me to the tube and the tip of my penis which helped keep the tube sliding freely in and out. And at the same time I would clean any build up off of the tube with a q-tip and these little antiseptic wipes the hospital gave me, being sure to only brush the q-tip and antiseptic wipes in the direction away from my penis.
Sounds like you are having a good recovery. Keep it up!
Here are some of my stats:
