Flushing of suprapubic catheter
When the doctor replaced my suprapubic catheter at one month he advised me he would be performing a flushing of the bladder to avoid collection of small particles which could lead to bladder stones. He inserted a syringe into the new catheter and forced a saline solution into my bladder. There was an immediate severe burning pain that lasted for several minutes. Has anyone else had this problem? The doctor advised me to flush at least once a week to prevent bladder stones. Does anyone else flush on a regular basis? Do you have pain when you do? Can I hope that flushing will become routine and devoid of pain?
