    Default Caesareans and no catheter

    Who has refused a catheter for a caesarean, and how does weeing work afterwards when you're still numb?

    I think you would have to have one. Being so numb I know I would ever have felt the urge or how they would deal with wee everywhere.

    Having had two cs I can't imagine you being able to deal without one. I had filled my urine bag before I got feeling in my legs back. There would of been no way I could of got up during the first 24 hours after to wee and the first time took half an hour for my bladder to start working.
    Im not a fan of them though and wish you could get away without them as well

    Just out of curiosity, as I'm having a c section in 2 weeks, do they put the catheter in while your numb??

    Yes if it's an elective c-section. They don't in emergency due to the epidural taking too long to work I think

    I had an emergency c section just over a week ago and it was inserted after the spinal block took effect which was very quick. I was really worried about having one but I couldn't even tell it was in. They took it out the next morning and it just felt a bit strange. I would think you would need one because you can't move your legs?

    I had one for my c-sec. I had to go under a general anesthetic (placenta previa) and they had to put it in before they put me under. It was painful and weird feeling but it was over really quickly.
    I definitely needed my catheter. It was 24 hours before It was taken out and the nurses kicked my butt to get me out of bed.

    I couldnt imagining not having one. But I don't think you get a choice as your numb and can't feel if your going or not.

    Doctors won't let you not have one. If your bladder starts to fill up during surgery it could get in the way of what doctors are doing.

    I had mine after the spinal block and didn't feel it at all. Having it, in particular not having to pee was fantastic!
