My uncle has Cerebral Palsy (he's very wheelchair bound, spastic and mentally disabled) and started having incontinence issues at 50, he also found it difficult to urinate although he felt the urge to. So a urologist put in a suprapubic catheter two months ago.
He's felt the constant need to urinate and somehow squeezes out urine via his urethra. We started a reward challenge to encourage him not to do this in case it's just based on habit and a GP prescribed Librax. This is working, but not all the time.
He's had good days where there's been no leaks via his urethra, but some days or nights he manages to wet himself completely.
We're not sure if the sensation of the foley catheter is causing the urge to push or if procedure of inserting the catheter could be incorrect, like not being in a spot - like a little too high up where it doesn't drain before he can even feel the urine in his bladder (the specialist double checked and a nurse confirmed everything seems fine with no blockages or infection).
We're feeling very defeated and he's weak after the operation so we hope there's not another procedure required to supplement/correct this. At the moment he's on nappies at night and some days he asks for it too.
Please help with any info...
Thank you so much
