Ah sounds horrible! I was really nervous about getting mine out but found it completely painless. Could barely feel it happening.

Thanks for all the replies!

I'm now confident that if someone suggests they will put the catheter in before the spinal, I can ask (or insist!) that they do it afterward instead. It seems like having it done afterward is so common that it shouldn't be a big deal to do it that way.

So many things have changed since I had my teenagers, and most for the better...sounds like the catheter after the spinal is one of those good changes!

For what it's worth, having the catheters put in hurt like hell...but having them removed was quite easy and never painful for me. I was always very afraid of not being able to use the bathroom afterward, though, knowing that they would put the catheter back in if I didn't go soon enough.

Omg. No way. They should do it after the spinal or you should demand it. Having the spinal is bad enough. It takes no extra time at all to fit it when you're numb

I've also asked for mine to be removed in recovery. I'd rather use a bed pan for a while than have it taken out not numb

After hearing everyone else's stories, I'm wondering why my mudwife advised me to have it beforehand. At least I know to say no next time!

With regards to having it taken out the next day, I barely felt it. My drain was a lot worse- that made me feel physically sick!
