Long Term indwelling Catheters

Hi all,

Hubby has just come home from hospital after being there for 2 weeks with a UTI.

He has been sent home with a Long term catheter until he can have a surapubic fitted.
The hospital didn't show us how to change it or hygiene etc. It is only reading on the internet
that I have found these things out.

How long can one of these be in?

...The urologist will do the surgery on August 2nd it seems a long time to wait with this in.

Hi, Do you know if the Hospital arranged for a District Nurse to come out, if not I`d get in touch with one via your GP, they are the ones who should deal with you husband`s catheter, don`t worry, they will be able to answer your questions.
