Have Urology Questions? Ask a Urologist Online.
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
are you male or female?
yes, having a foley catheter in can cause some bleeding when you have the foley removed.
but the bleeding should slow down and stop and should not continue on forever.
when do you follow up with your urologist?
so you just had the catheter removed last week.
is the bleeding getting better and less per day?
so you have the catheter still in?
then the blood can be a sign of a bacterial infection in your bladder
catheters can increase risks for infection
you should see your doctor sooner than the 20th and see if you need a course of antibiotics.
