This study is divided into two parts. The first part is a prospective observational study of
patients undergoing pelvic organ prolapse (POP) surgery. The goal is to determine patient
preference between 3 different methods of bladder drainage in case of post-operative voiding
dysfunction (POVD): transurethral indwelling catheterization (TIC), clean intermittent
self-catheterization (CISC), and suprapubic tube (SPT). The second part of the study will be
for those that choose CISC as their preferred method, whereby these patients will be
randomized to receive CISC instruction either pre- or post-operatively to determine whether
there is a difference in overall patient satisfaction based on timing of teaching.
The investigators hypothesize that patients that receive informed consent pre-operatively
will favour the use of SPT over TIC and CISC to manage potential POVD.
Among those patients who opted for CISC in management of their post-operative voiding
dysfunction, patients that are taught how to perform CISC pre-operatively in the clinic will
have a higher level of satisfaction compared to those that are taught post-operatively in the
