Resolved Question:

Hi. While this could be from irritation from the catheter itself I think she needs a urinalysis since this could indicate a bladder infection that would require antibiotics Let me know if you need any more information please

Hi...Thanks very much...As it is late over here in the UK, is this a situation that can be left overnight, or should we get her to the emergency room (A&E in the UK) for the urinalysis? There is the possibility I suppose it may settle over night?

It can wait until tomorrow Paul--nothing to rush about here. But even if it settles overnight I still would get the urinalysis
