    LOng story but my mom keeps getting up all during the night (i don't live with her) and her worker is not getting sleep. My moms doc won't give her a cath so we want to switch drs.

    What do we say so the new doc will get her a cath??
    Thanks,

    Catheters are notorious for causing infections. Most doctors are unwilling to risk infections, especially in older people. She should probably go to a urologist to find out why she has to go so much.

    I wish you luck. This is an uncomfortable situation all around, I'm sure.
