Anyone have any good tips on catheter management?
...use of KY or some type of Novacaine Cream? I am having Robotic Surgery Dec 12. From what I have read, the biggest irritation seems to be the catheter.

Richard,

Management of the catheter was not a major problem for me. What little irritation that developed I treated with an antibiotic salve.

Good luck with your surgery and keep us posted.

Roger

Richard,
I had the RP 3 years ago. The catheter was just a bother because it was there. No real pain or irritation.
Best Wishes,

Dear Richard:

My husband had his prostate removed in July 2003. The catheter was just a nuisance, he did not have any irritation, pain, etc. Try not to worry about this. From what I have read the robiotic surgery is better than what my hubby had (manual surgery).

God bless and take care.
