I'm not a doctor so this is just my experience. I had to have a cathetar in for 2 weeks and after a week it got sorei-sh and a tiny bit of blood was there. When i was tested it had shown that the cathetar had given me an infection. Of course i dont know what surgery u had that may affect your experience.
