Trauma, Spine injury, Ampute leg, tingling, UTI
My father met with an accident on Nov 2010, His left Lower limb was amputated (AK). He has spine injury too.
[Acc. to the discharge summary, report s/o L1 compression fracture with retropulsion & cord oedema. D12 fracture L2 trasverse proces fracture. L1, L2 bilateral facetal joint subluxation. Posterior spinal decompression & ZETA fixation done]
Since then he cannot pass urine; he is being catheterized six times a day. He also suffers from acute tingling in both the limbs and it is unbearable due to which hasn’t slept through nights for the past year.
The procedure for catherization is, a new catheter is being kept in a shallow vessel with a bottle of betadin poured in it. The catheter is used daily 4-6 times which continues for a week. Once in a month or two he is down with UTI for which we administer drugs according to the culture report however this time he had a huge swelling on one of his testicles, doctors have administered med but we have now started to worry about his health in the future. He has got tingling 24X7 but when there is any UTI or even fever the tingling just elevates to another level.
Would there be infections throughout his life? Will the tingling last forever? Is there no cure for this? Won’t he able to urinate normally?

Please let us know if there is a treatment for this
