Difficulty Controlling Urination After Catheter Use?
Asalamualaikum I want to ask grandmother I have been using the catheter for 6 months, but now it’s opened but I want to ask after 10 days of opening the BAK can’t last long before it reaches the bathroom it’s gone … Is it installed again the catheter or gym ,,,,,
In medical terms it is known urinary incontinence, which is a condition where a person has difficulty holding / controlling urine output. There are many different types of urinary incontinence. The cause can be due to:
history of recurrent urinary tract infections
frequent delivery (normally)
enlarged prostate gland (in men)
frequently consume alcoholic beverages
a history of injury leading to neurological disorders
weakness of the pelvic muscles due to aging
long-term use of a catheter
consumption of certain drugs
Reinforcing a catheter is one solution to overcome uncontrolled urine output. Some other alternative treatments are by:
insertion of a ring around the urethral valve
colposuspension (a procedure to raise the bladder)
prolapse surgery (to normalize the position of the organs in the lowered pelvis)
For more details, please consult directly with a urologist.
That way the doctor can perform a direct examination, find the exact cause of your grandmother's complaint, and provide the best solution. In addition, suggest to your grandfather to reduce consumption of caffeinated drinks, reduce body weight if you are classified as obese.
so, hopefully this is useful
