    The A&O patient is claiming he has a BM and when you go to clean him up, it looks exactly like semen. Multiple staff have seen it and they all agree. However, he has a foley in and the MD says its impossible, but I've honestly never seen clear-to-white sticky BM, no BM smell. Especially, "BM" thats more on the patients penis and front of his testicles than his rear end.
    The MD is wrong. He needs to retake A&P.

    I sat in on a short lecture a doc gave about how male pts with foleys should fold the foley over and apply a condom over the foley and penis- not just for contraception and protection from STDs, but to help prevent UTI.
    The ejaculate comes out around the outside of the foley.

    Yes, men and women can even have intercourse with a catheter in place - so yes, could be ejaculate.

    Think about it...if you can have a bladder spasm that leaks around the catheter, why could you not have the same with an ejaculation. From a male perspective, if I got a 14 or 16fr catheter sticking into my penis, there aint no way I am going to want to let my hand do any romance! And as far as "wet dream"...I don't think I'd be having any thing but night terrors while hospitalized.

    Thanks for your explanation Scubadude...it was exactly the avenue of thought I was following, certainly explains the spermatozoa in the Urine. I actually read about a female and male, both Catheterized, engaging in intercourse...My mind bends a bit processing that one.
    As for pericare on a guy with a penile implant...yeah, been there...he was a CVA, and incontinent of urine most of the time. To get a brief on him was difficult because it would not stay in, partly d/t anatomy difficulty, and mostly he would not keep his hands off his enhanced unit. we tried everything to keep a breif on him...it pretty much came down to bed changes q4h...and his urine STUNK!!! No UTI....we kept checking and checking....Just very funky urine! Stunk up that end of the unit. Hope he is not back on my unit anytime soon. He was catheterized for quite a while when he first came in ...that was nice...then he got over the retention thing....

    He's A&O. Is he a quad? If he's able to masturbate with his hands, he should be okay to clean himself afterwards.

    Why is everyone assuming it's masturbation? Could it not be from wet dreams?

    Not everything is sexual in nature ya know...

    cheers,

    Yes Roy, there is a small possiblity that a 50 year old man could still be having wet dreams. He probably got his HIV+ status from a blood transfusion too.

    First of all, I have NEVER gotten sick from reading posts here, but, as I was reading this morning, I was eating a scrambled egg sandwich. Now, that was really nasty. I don't think I can ever eat one again.

    Okay, though,, to put a new spin on things....There are men who have fetishes of sticking things UP their penis. A doctor ordered foley catheter would be the ultimate 'wet dream' for these guys. haha hmmm.. anyway, go figure.

    Ejaculate has a distinctive smell, one you've smelled it you should be able to distinguish it from BM that looks like ejaculate.
    Smells like a combination of chlorine and bean sprouts.....
