I had my catheter in for 45 days. The urine color will change form clear to reddish color from time to time and this is normal. As far as the pain at the end of your penis, try a Triple Antibiotic Ointment. You can get it at any Drug store over the counter. As for getting a little chubby, (erection) with the catheter in, YES you can. I did a few times. Good Luck, and I hope this helps some.
