My husband had a foley in for over 2 months (he could not urinate at all). It was horrible, because he had a constant infection. Now he self-caths, but if he doesn't continue with a mix of antibiotics, he gets an infection and then he can't walk. That is a problem, because the doctor doesn't want him to continue with abx. We have tried D-Mannose and cranberry, to keep the UTIs at bay, but in the end they couldn't keep up. Don't know what we can do in the future.
