Hi Terry,

I AM taking them, but now I am only taking them at noon and before I go to bed. I was hesitant to take them because I read somewhere that you shouldn't take them if you have any liver disease. I have hep C, so I wanted to only take them if I needed them.

Hi Maddy,

A supra pubic catheter is surgically implanted in your bladder just above your pubic bone. Take your bladder meds because you don't want to strain yourself on the toliet. That would not be could for your fistula. Take care of yourself. You will probably be all healed before I am out of the hospital. Most fistulas of our type are fixed the first time & some without surgery.

Good Luck,

Hi Karen,

Well, I think I am kinda getting used to the cath, it's not near as uncomfortable as that first few days. I don't "leak" during the day but it still happens at night, especially if I drink a lot of water before bedtime.. I don't know if it's because I am in a laying down position or what. The only thing I feel is sometimes I have a really strong urge to urinate. So far so good.

How are you feeling?? a little better I hope!! Well for bladder spams(they do really s****)- I really think everyone is different- I am still having them right now as a matter of fact. and I am 10 + weeks post OP!! I overdid it the last couple of days- painting etc and am now paying for it- mine were always worse as Terry said at the end of the day- and by about 6PM I could not walk anymore- I took pain meds at night only- as during the day I needed and wanted to be sort of myself for my kids!!

So you will feel your way thru it- and I did not have any at all for about 2 weeks - it sometimes takes your bladder a while to get real aggravated and react to the cath- and it does depend on the cath placement to as to how much it will bother you. So hopefully yours will heal and you can get it out soon. I hope this helps and please let me know if you need anything else!!

Hi Maddy,

I am off to the hospital but wanted let you know that my uro cut my bladder meds in half so that I take a dose in the morning & a dose in the afternoon. That helped a lot to level me off. Good luck with your fistula. See you when I get back.
