This was a question asked by Cara on the Caregivers forum; I thought perhaps our members who have/had a supra-pubic could help her out with her questions. Her husband is an incomplete C5-7, 5 months post. He has a little hand function, and is having problems doing intermittent caths.

"So I need some info on a super pubic cath, the doctor wants to put one in next Friday. Is this something we can hook to and empty his bladder every few hours or does he have wear a bag always? He doesn't want the bag all the time, but when it takes 1/2-1 hour to get the self cath tube in, anything is better. He always has a UTI. Opinions from people with and without would help."

Thanks in advance for the help, folks! Jackie
