Graham N. de Bever:
First catheter I put in (as a 4th year medical student) - old guy with BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy) - I drained 1600 mls after which he said he felt a lot better and would say a special prayer for me in church! Never felt better myself!
I've drained 3 litres of a female once, she had a mass in her uterus and hadn't peed for about a week.
19 yo female presented Wednesday with acute urinary retention & pelvic pain. Was in agony , waited 1.5 hours before being seen. At which time we drained 885mls!!!!
Hb 1.6 from a patient with haemorrhoid, no anaemic symptom at all, just complained of PRB, subsequent endoscopy revealed no other bleeding source!
PSA of over nine thousand. The cancer actually grew forward into the rectum and obstructed it.
Most grateful patient ever, elderly chap in retention - 1750mls. Once drained 600mls off a three-year old too.
Doing haematology. New diagnosis of CML in a young adult presenting to ophthalmology outpatients with visual disturbance
WCC 486.27 x10^9/L (normal 4 - 11)
