When I first got home from getting my suprapubic catheter put in, I had tons of questions.
But there was nobody to really answer them. Google searches helped some.
But I had SPECIFIC questions. I could only get answers if I called my Urology department and left a message for a nurse or doctor and hope they’d call me back. That didn’t always happen.
That doesn’t have to be the case for folks starting now (it’s Sep 1st, 2017 as I write this)!
There is a free hotline you can call to get answers to your catheter related questions. And you can get those questions answered by a Board Certified physician.
Just call this number: 833-MY-CATH-911 (833-692-2849).
The Surgical Drainage Awareness Foundation is offering this service to help people (like me) who get this extra body part, basically, and sent home with very little information. The hotline is there now to help folks who have a desperate need for information about their new reality.
THIS IS A VERY GOOD THING.
