My husband had endovascular...

My husband had endovascular popliteal artery aneurysm repair using a stent earlier today. We are home and when he urinated, there was a little blood in the urine. This was the first urination after surgery. Should we be concerned?

did he have a foley urinary catheter in his bladder during the procedure?

this catheter can irritate the bladder

and cause a bit of blood for a day or so

make sure he drinks more water and urinates more frequently

the little blood should go away

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.
