Doctor: Urinary catheters do not usually cause any pain while in place. Discomfort may occur if you have developed a urinary tra ct infection (UTI). Along with the pain other symptoms may be present including ‘cloudy’ , foul-smelling urine. A UTI is the most likely cause of your pain. You should see your doctor so that he/she may prescribe a course of appropriate antibiotics.
