Hi folks, a friend of mine has a superpubic catheter and was very pleased as he no longer seemed to get UTI’s, recently he had a bad UTI and septicaemia set in. Can anyone tell me if this is something that they’ve heard of happening; or was it just bad luck on his part.

Thank you for any advice you can give.

Hi Corkie, I had septicaemia in the past due to a uti, I do not have a catheter and was told in the hospital that it can happen when the uti goes undiagnosed for too long. I don’t think is is necessarily anything to do with the catheter just bad luck.

Hi Corkie, I know someone who got septicaemia from a UTI and they had a catheter… but like Ann says I think it’s bad luck and the UTI left too long without treatment.
