My daughter has a supra pubic cath and has it changed every 5 weeks or so. Many times it is very difficult for the nurse to pull out and there is bleeding. Most always after the procedure she will have a fever for a day which is very very difficult for her due to her MS.

II read somewhere on the internet a certain kind of cath tube that the ballon folds better and thus does not prevent a problem when removed.

How long can she go between changing the catherther.

She has had this over a year..should the site have healed by now? It stills drains a little and it not healed but somewhat raw looking.

Any suggestions?
