Thirteen days for me, mine settled down after a couple of days, "by passing" where urine comes out between the catheter and the urethra can be uncomfortable, particularly when passing a motion. Make the most of not getting out of bed at night too visit the loo.
I have been troubled be a urethral stricture since my op over two years ago. My surgeon is convinced it was caused by the way my catheter was removed. It got stuck on the way out and was then swiftly pulled out. So make sure yours comes out nice and gently.
