Hey KZIZ, My Dr's nurse removed the cath after the Dr looked at me. Really it's no big deal. She just had me stand up. She released the saline that pumps up the bulb that holds it in. Then the cath slid out with just a little pressure.
BTW. Mine was in for 23 days due to some healing problems. I guess I might have the record...in the wrong direction!!!!..heheheh
That's my story but you two do what you feel is right.
