How long will I have to wear this catheter? Need to vent.

I went again today and could only pee 250cc. Every time I sat down I had the urge to pee again and only trickles came out. So the catheter had to go back in. She wants me to also do some bladder retraining and kink the catheter to see how long I can go without peeing.

I really have only worn it since last we even though my surgery was on Monday because my OB doesn't keep it in after surgery.

How long will I have to wear it before I can pee great. At least today I did pee whereas on Friday I couldn't pee at all. It just seems like I feel great except for the peeing problem.

I was sent home with a catherder, went to the doctor two days later to have it removed. I was then sent back home and was not able to pee, and I tried everything.. I ended up very sick, not able to move and vomitting before my family took me to the ER.. I ended up having partial kidney failure and had the cathader for nearly 7 more weeks afterwards. Keep an eye out for signs of kidney failure - nausea, vommitting, pain, No sensation to pee etc..
