Hello Ratna, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Rio will try to answer your question.
A catheter is a device used to remove urine contents directly in the bladder. This catheter installation is performed for various purposes, both to diagnose a disease or for treatment. In this catheter installation may or may not be accompanied by complications.
Based on complaints that your husband feels, is one form of complications that can arise from catheter placement. In addition, there are also some complications that can occur in the installation of a catheter such as:
Disorders of the catheter, such as allergic to catheter material, leaky catheter tubes causing urinary leakage Disorders of the urethra (outermost urinary tract) such as urethral stricture, urethral perforation, and bleeding Urinary tract infections such as urethritis, cystitis, pyelonephritis, and transient bacteremia , parphimosis caused by failure of the prepuce to return to the initial position after catheter placement, grosshematuria, kidney damage. The longer the time to install the catheter to eat, the more risk you are getting infected. The catheter balloon that is developed is damaged or broken when inserting the catheter. The catheter balloon cannot expand after the catheter has been installed. Urine flow is blocked, the doctor must replace the catheter, urine bag, or both. Bladder spasm can occur when a catheter is inserted. This condition arises when feelings of urination arise and can be accompanied by pain. Frequently, urine will come out outside the catheter tube when spasms arise. Of all the complications that can be at risk for catheter placement, the most common is urinary tract infection and injury / trauma. Injuries / trauma that occur such as urethral stricture or narrowing of the urinary tract that is likely currently happening to your husband.
So now what you can do is follow the advice of the doctor who treats your husband. Because every decision given by a doctor has done a lot of consideration through physical examination and support.
That's all the answers I can give.
Thank you :)
