We are sorry to hear you are experiencing this.  It's advised that you give your doctor a call to report this now even with your upcoming appointment in a week.  They may wish to evaluate you sooner under these circumstances.  Some bleeding, however, is normal after this surgery and cath removal.  https://www.cancer.org/cancer/bladder-cancer/treating/surgery.html

Please stay in touch and let us know how your appointment goes and the doctors thoughts on this bleeding.
