Stent out today: It is normal to see blood and have burning, but if it persists this can be an infx....If you don't improve in 24 to 48 hours see your doc.

Normal: You have just had urethral instrumentation. Some blood and penile (urethral) irritation is normal. Blood-tinged urine is normal but not frank blood. If you have any questions, you should contact the doctor who performed the procedure tomorrow. If symptoms worsen, and you have pure blood coming from your penis, you should go to the emergency department.
