Catheter Removed

I had cervical cancer and had a supra pubic catheter put in.  I just got it removed permanently thank god but what i was wondering was how long does it take for the bladder to heal closed.  They mentioned that i had to keep my bladder empty or it might leak out and was wondering how long before I didnt have to worry about that anymore.  Thanks

Hi,
The healing process of the bladder is good and fast. However this may be delayed in presence of infection or by cancer involvement. Hence you should follow up with your Doctor and take the necessary precautions till he says so. Hope this helps.
Take care.
