    need somemore info

    Ok, so Sally is dealing with the colostmey but for the past week when she sits up her superpubic is leaking around the tube, she's getting released today and it's still leaking. I ask the surgeon he doesn't know, her urologist won't see her without a request from her surgeon i'm beginning to think I need to through someone through a wall to get an answer, any input would be great. spike

    Did they stop her anticholenergic medications when she was in the hospital? Was the catheter changed? Have you tried irrigating it to see if it is plugged?

        Leakage may be due to an oncoming UTI or she may need to start an anticholenergic. We recommend them for most people who use an indwelling catheter and have a SCI.
