A 57-year-old male asked:
After a suprapubic catheter has been removed how long does it take to stop leaking?

Suprapubic catheter: After removal, leaking of urine can occur for about 24 hours or a little longer. Usually the site is secured with sterile dressing and a bag is attached to the site of catheter to collect urine if there is any leakage. Follow up with your doctor closely.
