    What kind of syringe tip are you using? In order to get the liquid out, you need to have a good seal with the syringe and the funnel of the catheter. So a luer lock tip is your best bet over a slip tip syringe.

        You said it is still draining. Is the draining causing any sweating or uncomfortableness? If yes, I can think of two things.
        Partial sediment or the drainage hole is rubbing against the bladder wall. Try pushing the catheter in just a tad and see if that helps.

            In my opinion its the sediment. And do you irrigate till you see no more sediment? And second. When I said push, I meant to push the catheter in just a tad and then try irrigate and see if that help. If it does you might want to try the next level down in catheter size. Believe it or not that might help with leakage.

              I've found that slip tip and catheter tip syringes do not seal tightly enough with the catheter funnel to allow the liquid in the bladder to be drawn out.

                      Yes, when you use the luer lock tip syringe inside the catheter funnel, you are creating a vacuum.
