I have seen several posts on catheters. Is having one common, beyond the surgery?

I am having a hyst, and might have some kind of pelvic support. I won't know until after doc does some tests. But the idea of a catheter coming home with me is scary. Is it common for what I am having done? or is it one of those things that just sometimes happens?

I think it is common to have a catheter after surgery. I had a TAH a month ago and had one for a few days. I have read about some of the ladies going home with one too. My mom had a hysterectomy 1 1/2 years ago and came home with one for several days. What type of surgery are you having?

I had a TAH and had a catheter in for 2 days until the epidural came out.
