    I am a paraplegic, complete, T12.  I  have been using ISC for 22 years.   I had a rotator cuff repair done in February during which time I had an indwelling catheter.  Now I am allowed to use my arm again, I have restarted transfers.  However my  transfers are so poor that I have managed to pull out 3 indwelling catheters with the balloon still inflated – not sensible.   I am thinking that I need to have a suprapubic catheter fitted and to discontinue ISCs.  I would appreciate anyone’s comments on the advantages and disadvantages of the former.
