He was in hospital with a hip replacemnt in August and as a result had to use a catheter and then could not urinate when it was removed so he has had it sence then but this is the first time we have seen blood in his urine.

Dear customer,
Thank you for the question.

This is commonly seen due to catheterization. The catheter can irritate the delicate lining of the urethra. This mild bleeding is not a cause for alarm or concern. Only if the bleeding is heavy or if persistent you should contact his doctor. The mild bleeding and catheter caused injury will resolve by itself.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
