When hubby was in hospital I asked one of the doctors whether there are fewer UTI’s with a suprapubic catheter he said no.
I am getting conflictin answers from the medical profession.
What is your experience with that?
[/quote] Hi i have had a suprapubic catheter for years, and UtI:s are few and far between now
I drink at least 2 litres of Robinsons barley water (Peach ) a day if my urine starts to smell a little
i up my fluids by drinking carton of cranberry juice and that sorts me out.
I started with a leg bag during the day,but my nurse sugested a flip-flow catheter valve for day time use.
(you have to remind yourself to empty),but after a while it becomes second nature.
for overnight i have a 2 litre bag on a stand,
Hope this helps JOHN
