This is Dr. David

it is very common to have irritation of your bladder from a foley catheter when you are active and walking.

but you should get the urine checked in the foley to check for bacterial infection

you most likely need a course of antibiotics for a bladder infection.

you might need to have that foley catheter removed as soon as possible.

let me know if you have questions.
