Permanent Foley Catheter

Hi Everybody,

I just found this board. Two years ago I was having all kinds of bladder problems and my urologist had me try a foley catheter. It was the best thing that ever happened to me and I have been using on ever since. I am quite satisfied with it and my urologist tells me to just keep using it but when I cruise around the internet I keep seeing these horror stories about long term use of a foley catheter. I guess that answer is to just stop looking on the internet but my question is there anybody else who has used a foley catheter for very long term and did it cause you any problems
