Hello All !!!
I am a 55 year old male, to under go TURP surgery in about 3 weeks.
I have seen 2 Urologist and they both agree the surgery is needed.
My primary Urologist said to self cath 3-4 times daily (urine retention 400 ml plus).I am using the Astra LoFric Primo caths.
I started this self-cathing 3 days ago and it is helping relieve the fullness feeling in my bladder,but I am experiencing bleeding and it is getting more difficult to insert the caths.Is it normal to have bleeding ???
Today I started using "Surgilube" ,but it is still difficult inseting the last 6"s of the cath.
I will be calling my Urologist about this on Monday,
Does anyone have some experience with this.
I sure could use some help !!!!
