UGHHHHH! I have a UTI from the catheder. I came home yesterday after my 360 fusion. I had my cath removed Wednesday (surgery was tuesday) and had problems getting anything to come out. After the bladder scanned me and saw I had a TON of urine sitting in there , they had the CA straight cath me. I should have stopped her when she "missed" the first try, but I didnt. She tried poking a few times and finally got it. I know she went in the wrong area ...aka my vagina...right before she got in it in the wrong spot. I thought to myself...did she really just retry with the same tubing?? and sure enough she did,and she was getting urine out. Well,I felt relief then but now sit here with a horrid burning sensation and the urge to keep going to the bathroom. I told the nurse before they discharged me and her response was, "go home and drink cranberry juice, that should help". WTF anyway, I called my dr and they called in a RX for some bactrim. Hope it helps fast because I cant keep sitting on the toilet!!!
Sorry for the vent!
