    I have a question regarding patients who have surgery and have had a general anesthesia as well as a spinal. How long is too long for them to pee? I had a patient who came up to my floor after surgery. She has had spinal and general anesthesia without complications. I

    She had 2000MLs of fluid during surgery and after 6 hours she still hasn’t peed. Is this bad? Why didn’t they go ahead and put a foley in her during surgery? This doesn’t make any sense to me?
