In brief: None reasonable

Bladder will continue to fill + has to be drained because of pain and discomfort.
Intermiitent ctheterizaion is management of choice with much lower risk of UTI than an indwelling catheter. Voiding ability, if present before operation, should return and can be aided by medications.

In brief: Intermittent cath

Only intermittent catheterization, until mess help or your bladder recovers.
