I am asking this question as rock n roll went home without one,and had to go back and have one put in after his turbt..
After my husbands first turbt he came home with a catheter for 12 days,,,good thing!! as the result was we saw many little debris that could have gotten stuck somewhere causing problems. When you have a tumor scrapped and removed best they can in this procedure the aftermath has to come out in different forms. After the second turbt at the Cleveland Clinic
he didn't require one, why?,,,the doctor said he had cleaned the bladder out so well it wasn't necessary.
Recently we have been helping a couple we met through our son,,,he also didn't come home with a cath,,,result was a backup of urine into the ureters and kidneys,,,at first complaint they gave him pain pills,of course,,,at 3rd complaint they cathed him at the er,,,,solved the problem,,,,so be sure and ask about it at your first turbt,,,,
Did you have a cath after your turbt?
