Had a very anxious time at 1am in hospital emergency.
The wait-time would have been 4 hours, and my bladder felt really full. No urine had been coming out for two hours or more. My bladder couldn't wait 4 hours.
I asked nurses for advise. A kind nurse, said, "I won't make you wait four hours", and cleared the debris jam by reverse flushing the catheter with saline in a needle-less syringe.
Why the blockage? Debris from the body -- looks like small cotton ball in the clear tube to the urine bag. Another nurse said it could also be "positional". The first nurse said it could also be my 96mL prostate could have blocked.
