Welcome to a super supportive group here. They've helped alleviate so much anxiety in our own home.
As all those have said above, the cath is so restrictive, so irritating but once it's out it's a huge relief. I don't know if your instructions on release advised you to use the bacitracin ointment 3xday at the penile tip where that cath exits, but it really helped to keep irritation at minimum. Just keep everything clean that comes in contact with it, and rotate the gauze with ointment around in one direction, to avoid contaminating the area you just cleaned off.
Don't let it keep you from careful walking in your yard or home either. Immediate exercise after your surgical ordeal is so important to that invaded area. Try to keep the cath anchored properly and it should be less irritating to manage.
Good luck with your healing.
