1 doctor weighed in:

I had a Foley catheter which came out with the bulb fully inflated. How is this possible? I had severe spasms for 3 days before it came out.

In brief: Multiple reasons

The bulb was probably underinflated or the valve was leaky and led to the catheter being pulled out with bulb partially inflated.
