You probably still have stagnant urine in the diverticulum and this is why the surgery needs to be done. The use of the catheter does not horn the sphincter is any way. This operation is the same is men as it is in women so you should have no worries that your surgeon has not done this is women. There is no difference in the procedure. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.
