Hi- I am a new grad and inserted a foley cath in a female patient yesterday. It was my second time doing it, so I was nervous. Anyway, I got immediate urine return, advanced it, then inflated the balloon. About 7cc's into the inflation she started to yelp. Said it was burning. My preceptor was in the room and told me to just continue inflating to 10ccs. I advanced a little more and the patient still had pain. Urine return was evident, so I'm just wondering if there's something else I did wrong.
Thanks for any suggestions!
