Study Summary

This study aims to investigate whether patients who self-remove their indwelling transurethral catheters on POD 1 have similar rates of postoperative catheter reinsertion for urinary retention (within the first 7 days after surgery) compared with those who undergo catheter self-removal on POD 3.
