Does it hurt to pee after having a catheter? If so, is there anything I can do to make it any less painful? For how long after having the catheter will it hurt to pee?

It's a tube inserted somewhere in your body... generally into the bladder or used in heart surgery.

It doesn't hurt afterwards (unless you have it in a long time perhaps). But it sure hurts going in so make sure you're calm and maybe take some ibuprofen or something. Are you just having a diagnostic done?

Im sorry to sound stupid, but what is a catheter?

In medicine, a catheter is a tube that can be inserted into a body cavity duct or vessel. Catheters thereby allow drainage or injection of fluids or access by surgical instruments. The process of inserting a catheter is catheterization. In most uses a catheter is a thin, flexible tube: a "soft" catheter; in some uses, it is a larger, solid tube: a "hard" catheter.

In this case, I'm speaking of a urinary catheter, or by the medical name, a Foley catheter.

A Foley catheter is a thin, sterile tube inserted into your bladder to drain urine. Because it can be left in place in the bladder for a period of time, it is also called an indwelling catheter. It is held in place with a balloon at the end, which is filled with sterile water to hold it in place. The urine drains into a bag and can then be taken from an outlet device to be drained. Laboratory tests can be conducted on your urine to look for infection, blood, muscle breakdown, crystals, electrolytes, and kidney function. The procedure to insert a catheter is called catheterization.

I'm having surgery, so I'm hoping that they'll put me to sleep and then put the catheter in so it doesn't hurt me. Does anyone here think they'll put the catheter in after they put me to sleep but stil before they begin the surgery, so I won't have to feel it? I'm thinking about asking the doctors if they could do this.

Why would someone need one though?

A Foley catheter is used with many disorders, procedures, or problems such as these:

   * Retention of urine leading to urinary hesitancy, straining to urinate, decrease in size and force of the urinary stream, interruption of urinary stream, and sensation of incomplete emptying
   * Obstruction of the urethra by an anatomical condition that makes it difficult for you to urinate: prostate hypertrophy, prostate cancer, or narrowing of the urethra
   * Urine output monitoring in a critically ill or injured person
   * Collection of a sterile urine specimen for diagnostic purposes
   * Nerve-related bladder dysfunction, such as after spinal trauma (A catheter can be inserted regularly to assist with urination.)
   * Imaging study of the lower urinary tract
   * After surgery

They probably would I would think. When I had mine done, it was a diagnostic test to see if my bladder was the correct size (after chronic bladder infections) so they inserted fluids into my bladder through a catheter that they could see through a machine to test the size and also how well my bladder could expel the fluid.

I don't remember it hurting when they took it out. In fact, I don't think I even noticed.

It should not hurt to urinate after having it removed. If it does, let your doc know (could be result of a UTI).

I think I had the same thing, I dont remember it hurting going in, being removed or immediately afterwards.

It does hurt a tad bit for me every now and again, but normally only when it was done by an incompetent nurse and I'm just fine the next day.
