I had prostate surgery on Dec 5. On Dec 11 the catheter was removed but I started to have bladder spasms and was not able to pass urine.As a result the catheter was reinserted. On Dec 18 the catheter was removed and the same result, except I spent 3 hr in the ER getting the catheter reinserted and getting pain meds for the spasms. HAs anyone had a similar problem. I am scheduled to have the catheter removed on Dec 26. I have been instructed to clamp off the catheter and allow urine to build up and then try to pass the urine and then try to stop the flow to exercise the muscles that control the flow

Thanks
