Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service
We understand the concerns that you feel
The use of urine catheters is indicated for patients who have difficulty in passing urine due to certain medical conditions, patients with impaired consciousness, monitor the production of urine excreted and surgery patients.
For patients who have to use urine catheters for a long time, they are required to routinely replace urine catheters within 1-2 weeks. The use of urine catheters is very risky to experience urinary tract infections if used for too long without good care.
Often patients who have recently separated from catheter use, especially patients who have used the device for a long time, will have difficulty urinating normally after removal. This condition is quite reasonable and usually only lasts a while. Patients still need to be retrained to urinate directly without the use of a catheter.
Other causes of complaints experienced by your wife may be caused by urinary tract infections after the use of a catheter. Catheters that are not replaced regularly and are not cleaned or cared for properly when installed, have a high risk of infection. Slimy vaginal discharge like milk indicates an infection. Infection can occur due to bacteria and fungi that are found in the pubic area. This infection can affect the difficulty of urinating normally after using a catheter.
Regarding your wife's condition, we recommend that you check your wife's condition again to the nearest doctor or specialist doctor who treated your wife beforehand so that it can be further evaluated and given appropriate treatment. These actions should be done immediately so that the symptoms are not getting worse.
Thus the information we can convey, hopefully helps
