    Good question. I have read that a supra pubic stoma can close up in less than 10 minutes once a catheter is removed. That said, I've have read posts within this forum, that the closing of the supra pubic stoma can be almost instantaneous, i.e., remove the foley catheter with one hand and insert the new one with the other hand, with hardly a skip of seconds in between.

    NL changes my supra pubic catheter and there is less than (probably much less than) 60 seconds between removing the old catheter and inserting the new catheter.
