Hi all

On 5-7 June I went into hospital for Colonoscopy.


5th Prep due to Disabilities and live alone
6th Op and observation as I live alone
7th Discharge

Well on the 5th I started the prep for the colonoscopy and they found I was retaining so yay(sarcasm partially) I was recatherised with an IDC as well as I was bed bound due to fluid retention in feet as well as spinal injury(by ITSELF) I was a high falls risk. The also did a urine test.

On the 6th I had to have Fleet Enemas (which I found more effective than suppositories) 1 at 4 or 6am and not sure what time I had the other still wasn't fully cleared out. They found polyps and hemorrhoids so they were banded at the time.

I am wondering is it safe and how does a male Masturbate with an IDC as I have to have it in until at least the 31 July when I see my urologist (where they either change it or take it out).

Also the hospital found out on the 11 June when the results got back I had an UTI since at least the 5th but no one was notified until I rang my urology nurse at a different hospital who was shocked I wasn't informed.

Many thanks

Absolutely do not masturbate with an indwelling catheter in. ESPECIALLY if you have a uti.

Thankyou

I will ask for a uretheral stent as the Botox in March screwed my bladder worse.
