Customer Question

Can cranberry juice turn my catheter urine to pink? I am home now from a radical prostatectomy (robotic) on last Monday?

Yes it can-

Although we often get concerned about blood- which would be the other possibility

I'd stop the cranberry juice, stay well hydrated and see if it stops being pink

Good luck
