    Exclamation 3X in recent time that changing out SP tube during infection relieved

    some of my stabbing pain. tube is changed every 30 days. i drink plenty fluids. i always get good urine flow, though now it's dark, murky and smells.
    the SP tube tip was not clogged but syrupy, and discolored. my abdomen surrounding tube is ultrasensitive, but not infected looking.
    it's size is 22fr, could it be the material? i'll check.
    any other experienced similar.

    Have you tried a pure silicone catheter (such as one made by Rochester Medical) instead of a latex silicone coated catheter? If I understand your question, you are having pain but also clogging of your catheter. The treatment for the latter would be daily Renecidin instillations. Have you tried this? What does your urologist say? Have you had a cystoscopy to see what is going on inside your bladder?
