Hi--what studies of your bladder and urethra have been done?

urologyst did bladder scan no diabetic problems thinks due to back stenosis

question I have is is it necessary to clean uretha to clear out lubricant due to cathing??????

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

he thought was related to nerve damage but my question is do I need to flush clean uretha from lubricating catheters due to having to cath

Sorry for the delay. No--there's no need to flush the urethra in that case unless you don't urinate at all from the bladder problem. If that were the case, I would flush it once a week but the lubricant wouldn't really ever completely obstruct the ureter
