Hi Jim,
Thank you very much for the information. May I ask a couple of follow up questions? You mentioned that it took you 4-6 weeks for you to get rid of the catheter after several months of having GBS. Do you recall what symptoms/indications/tests you had at that time that your doctor thought you are ready to try without catheter? Also, may I ask if there is any therapy, bladder training, or medication that the doctor gave you during the 4-6 week period to help with the process?
I also read about the intermittent catheters vs Foley Catheter. Currently, my kid has the Foley Catheter and needs to go to hospital every 3-week to have the catheter replaced. Does anyone in the forum have experience with intermittent catheters for kid?
Thanks and Regards,
