In brief: Several causes
Catheter can cause irritation and depending on how long it was in, can temporarily decrease bladder capacity by not allowing bladder to go through fill-empty cycle.
Should be short-term issue. It is also possible to have infection from catheter that can cause urgency/leakage.
