suprapubic catheter or Foley catheter

Post  VK1121 on Sat Nov 08, 2008 1:51 am

I have a prolapsed bladder and urine retention. I will be having surgery in a few weeks (hysterectomy, etc.). The urologist has told me I have to decide on a suprapubic catheter (internal) or Foley catheter (external).
Has anyone had experience with one or the other. What was your experience?
