Sorry!!  To bad I can't think of all my questions at one time.  sad
Do you keep doing the Kegels while the catheter is still in or wait til it's removed?  I mean isn't that muscle you're trying to strengthen being compromised by the catheter in there?

Hi Ellen,

Good Question; I think your doctor will probably tell you to wait until the catheter is removed before resuming the Kegels for the very reason you mentioned. The Kegel instructions I got were after the catheter was removed.

Thanks Glen that's what I thought.  It's funny the things a person thinks of while lying in bed trying to sleep.  tongue

Us too!! Kegels before and after not with catheter :)

The best thing that happened to us was the first stop/start after the catheter was removed!!! The flow stopped :) This is what we all hope and pray for..... and if it doesn't stop right away.... we know we still have lots of healing going on. And remember ... each situation is different. So.... take each day... one day at a time.
