Yes we have nurses come around every week to flush it out and the last week i ring them then they ring back and go from there.

Hi Jason Do you mean that Dad is passing tiny amounts of urine all day or that the bag itself is leaking? The only experience I have of catheters/bags is when I've had one fitted after an operation and I do recall that I kept passing tiny amounts of urine all the while it was fitted; but if it is t...

Also told to leave small amount of urine in leg bag to help avoid air lock. Thanks for your reply and i also do it every 7 days now on a Sunday and have been...
I saw a programme on TV recently about a new prostate treatment. Maybe it's time to ask the GP to make a referral to a urologist? Urine shouldn't be thick or smelly. Ideally, it should be the colour of pale lemonade. If you get that colour all the while over a period of time with a catheter you hav...
