A friend e-mailed be saying that, following a laser procedure for prostate cancer, his doctor was unable to remove his catheter. I'll be seeing him fairly soon (at his request), but I do not know (and he did not tell me) what the failure to remove the catheter implies for his health. I'm not even sure what type of catheter it is. I'm worried, and I do not want to ask him about it, as I'm fearing the worst and don't wan't to risk upsetting him with an e-mail inquiry. Can anyone help me out?
