    Suprapubic Cath

    I had my outpatient surgery last Thursday to place my SP and everything went well and continues to go well which is a plus after the last few years. I can only hope the next few weeks, few months and few years go as smoothly as the last few days!

    You may want to read the various posts about using Vetericyn to help prevent bladder colonization and urinary tract infection with a suprapubic catheter. If you need some help, please feel free to ask any questions.

    All the best,

    Hi Stevie

    I'm hanging in there my SP seems to be working like it should HOWEVER yesterday we must have had a small kink in it because I leaked around the SP cath and ended up wet. Learning on the go as with most things other then that I wish my nerve pain would GO AWAY but that's life I guess.

    How are you doing?

    Glad it is going smoothly so far. Hope it simplifies things for you.
    My husband has one and has had good luck with it.

    What is the vetericyn for? I had to take an antibiotic for about a week before I had mine done. I am getting the stitches removed tomorrow. I leaked a little urin the first day but they put enough bandage to soak it up and for the last few days it has just been some blood as the stitches pulled out a little bit.

    You must be a a really low quad because I thought that only paras had the nerve pain. I have it and it drives me crazy. I take methadone and it will take the edge off of it most of the time but it is always there.
