Side Effects Of Long Catheter Placement?
Morning I want to ask my mom right after the operation of the leg amputation due to an accident Then the vagina also ripped out after being sewn. During this time he was still urinating using a catheter. Uda almost 2 months. And for the past 2 days, mom, if I have difficulty urinating, must push first. I wonder how ?
Hello Prisca, Thank you for the question.
Does this urine catheter continue to be installed all this time or is it only installed when your mother feels like urinating? The use of a urinary catheter is needed to help monitor urine output, help with urine output in patients who have disorders in the urinary process such as spinal cord injury, urinary obstruction due to kidney stones, benign prostate enlargement, cancer, or neurological disorders in the bladder. Use of urinary catheters in the long term does have complications that can include urinary tract infections, kidney stones, and injuries to the urethra (urinary tract). Difficult complaints BAK (must push) can be caused by the conditions mentioned above. We recommend that your mother go back to the doctor immediately. The doctor will ask your mother's complaints, examine your mother, and conduct investigations such as blood tests, urine tests, ultrasound, and others to determine the cause. The treatment that will be given by the doctor will then be adjusted to the conditions experienced by your mother.
I hope this helps.
