Pain after Supra Pubic Catheter?

I'm very new at this catheter thing, and hoping someone else has been through it that can help me understand what to expect. I got mine Friday night and after 4 days, I'm getting a sort of half-pain/half-itch sensation in the penis. Is that normal? Also I get urges to pee from the penis, but of course nothing comes out since the catheter is in. But that urge causes a bit of pain. Again, just wondering if anyone else with a SP cath had these issues.

Re: Pain In Penis After Supra Pubic Catheter?

I think I have something of an answer to the question above. This morning, I had a really strong urge to pee, and when I sat on the toilet I noticed that the catheter tube coming out of my belly (a 10 French) was kinked, completely blocking any flow into the bag. Luckily for me, my stricture blockage has shrunken somewhat since the scoping and ER trauma (they repeatedly tried shoving a Foley in, not knowing there was a stricture), so I was able to void through my penis. That has also reduced the pain I was feeling in there.

I guess the take-away here is to check your catheter often for kinks and twists.

Hope this helps someone else.
