Couldn't find what you looking for?


A friend of mine who is developmentally diabled has had to have a catheter put in to empty his bladder.  He does not seem in pain.  He at times tries to urinate, but does pass very much or go very often.  He does not really understand what is going on, he allows the catheter to be put in, but it is hard on everyone.  Any suggestions as what to do?  The Urologist said just to cath and come back in a month.


hopefully they tested him to see what was causeing this, and he doesn't have an obstruction causing it, which I am sure they probably ruled out.  You could ask the doctor if bethanechol would help, it is a medication that is frequently used for overflow incontence, which it sounds like he has. Good luck
