Is bleeding normal after foley catheter

Last night i went to the ER because i was having pain on my left side

They gave me a Foley catheter and an ultrasound the doctor said everything looked fine and i got to see my baby for the first time!! (it was pretty cool)

When i got home and used the bathroom I wiped and there was blood so im wondering is that normal after having a catheter? and if so when should it stop?

  • well, sounds like they scraped some skin. Is it bright red flowing blood or urine with a little blood in it? If is seems heavy-I would call the doctor and ask him.
