    It's not a blood clot as in the type that causes strokes or heart attacks. Remember the bladder is full of fluid. It was a "clump" of blood that formed in the urine, but then "clogged" the end of the catheter, so no fluid could come out. We were watching to be sure the cath bag was filling..it wasn't...and I was feeling like I had a full bladder...which I did. So the clump of blood had to be dislodged -- which is what they did, by injecting saline into the bladder (through the catheter tube). The saline is injected in, and it and urine then flow out...washing out the blood clot too. So real risk to me so long as we caught it right away. The doctor administered about 30 shots of botox into the bladder == so it's not unusual for there to be some blood in the urine.

    Thanks for that clear explanation. I am curious about how many shots I got.
    This is week 3 since the Botox injections and I am so happy with the results that I could just dance!

    Thanks for the information. I know I should have asked to be taught self cathing but I just want to enjoy my new freedom. I will ask next time because I am sure I will have to learn.
    Here is a youtube video that may help you. It's been viewed many times.

    It could just help give you the peace of mind for those times that it may help to know how.

    Glad the botox is giving you freedom!

    Thank you so much for posting that video. It is very informative and gives me complete information....as opposed to partial information. This will not be easy for me to learn but, I will have to learn. You have given me a leg up to start. (Yes, pun intended).

    Good information, but since I no longer work well with my hands it scares me! Linda, I hope you do not have to do this, but if you should maybe this will help.
