Strict adherence to guidelines to prevent catheter associated urinary tract infections is helpful in reducing bladder infections. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has developed guidelines with respect to appropriate urinary catheter use, proper techniques for insertion, and maintenance of urinary catheters (https:///hai/ca_uti/). Individuals who perform clean intermittent catheterization (insertion of a catheter to drain the bladder and removal several times a day) and who develop frequent infections may change to single use systems.
Hi Isabel. Pain on its own without other symptoms can be difficult to diagnose. As you read from the article above, the pain you describe could be arising from the right kidney. So it would be useful to take notice of any urinary symptoms that could further confirm that the origin of the pain is the kidney. However, it could also be a liver problem, chest-related condition or even a back problem. It is difficult to say with any certainty. Speak to your doctor who can then do a physical examination, and if necessary also run further tests to confirm a diagnosis.
