Eek! Oh dear, please take care Andy. As a former health professional I have one piece of advice about the catheter - don't pull it out. I have seen male patients did that and they were not happy with the results.

Thanks all for the good advice.

I know not to pull it out. The nurse who put it in, constantly saying, I'm sorry , I'm sorry as I roared in pain, told me she inflated the end of the cath to hold it in place so I'm not even thinking about it. I can always go back to emergency.

They teach us "I'm sorry, I'm sorry" the first year of nursing school.

At least you didn't get Nurse Ratched who loves to inflict pain.

It comes out a lot easier than it goes in.
Take care and don't forget it hanging somewhere and walk off.

Andy my heart goes out to you. As a female, I know how painful a urinary infection can be. It is even more painful for a male. I am so sorry you are going through this. Take care and follow orders.

Oh--I've got a puncture wound in my arm (thanks to Rocky) puffy where he hit me, and a pink line running up my arm (which I marked with a pen--hasn't moved for over 1.5 hours). Self-medicating with antibiotics (dog, but they came from the pharmacy). If I hadn't had 2 glasses of wine, I'd be in the emergency room right now.

Yikes! I'm sorry to hear that you are going through this. If you DO decide to pull it out yourself make sure to get it on video. The money you win from Funniest Home Videos will help with your medical bills.

Seriously, get better soon!

I think face to face human medical help is required here. Please head to emergency or call a doctor.
