In brief: Yes but

Sorry you had colovesical fistula at such a young age .
Small bits of blood after taking Foley out is not worrisome.Call your surgeon and mention about painful erections .S/he might prescribe oral ketoconazole which will often prevent this. Hope this helps.Speedy recover.

In brief: Common

What you describe is not uncommon for the surgery you underwent.
Those symptoms should dissipate in time. If not, get checked by a urologist.
