    Default Urinating after a catheter

    Is it normal to have discomfort when urinating after having a catheter in?

    It has been 3 weeks and i'm still very uncomfortable.

    also my pee is coming out in crazy directions (think of jim carey pee'ing in Me, myself, and Irene after having lots of sex)

    normal or am i damaged?

    TIA

    I don't think that is normal at all.

    I had a catheter in 8 days ago, no problems here.

    Weeing stung for about 48 hours after it come out. That doesn't sound right after 3 weeks especially that it goes it weird directions. I would get that checked out.

    Default Urinating after a catheter

    After my catheter I was able to go to the toilet pretty normal straight away. I don't think it sounds normal what you are experiencing. Perhaps give your doctor a call?

    Doesn't sound right considering it's been 3 weeks.

    I had some discomfort for about 48 hrs after mine was taken out. No weeing in different directions though.

    I agree with what the other ladies are saying, contact your doctor to have it checked out.

    Doesn't sound normal. I was fine after about a day.
    Probably best to see a doctor.

    You should make appointment to see your GP. There is always risk of infection once having a catheter in as it is a foreign body so you may have developed a UTI and require antibiotics. Don't just leave it or it can worsen into pyelonephritis (infection to kidneys). May just be irritation, but this is unlikely given it has been 3 weeks. Best to get it checked out.

    I'd make an appointment to see if damage was done or if you have a UTI.

    A cathetar might cause temporary issues after its removed, but certainly not issues that last 3 weeks. That's not normal.

    I had a cathatar in for over a week. I had a cyst that it was sitting on, which caused pain and a bit of discomfort. Since, my pee a little more crooked than what it was :/
