wonder if any one has a catheter done that is a supra pubic Cath put in and if so what is the ups and downs of it I am kicking the Idea around
Mine was installed in May 2013, about 4 months after my spinal injury. It has been much more convenient than intermediate catheterisation but does have some problems:
1 a small amount of leakage around the insertion point;
2 infections – fairly frequent. Mine have always been easily cured with Nitrofurantoin. You will need a prescription for this.
3 Blockages: very nasty and dangerous. I found a way of preventing mine – available on the message board under Continence Matters.
