    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.
