I am having a painful burning sensation at the end of my penis/catheter when trying to defecate. No blood but a little secretion. I get the catheter out in two days (total of 14 days) and wonder if this burning will cease when catheter comes out.

If it does, your doctor can prescribe pyridium, a low cost drug, that takes away most of the burning feeling you are describing.

Have you been using a water based lube (like KY) on the tip of your penis? The catheter actually slides in and out a bit.
