Re: what does a subpubic catheter look like


A suprapubic catheter is a tube that is incerted through your belly approx. 3" below your belly button. I had one 10+ years ago, and I didnt have a bag attatched to it. Mine had a vaulve on the end of it that I could open to empty my bladder, then close it when It was done. I have heard others state they had a bag attatched to theirs, that they would have to empty the bag when full.
Is this something that YOU will be getting?

Hope this helps. Take care,
and GOd bless.
