Bilateral Ureteral Reimplantion

My 9 month old baby recently (5 days ago) had a Bilateral Ureteral Reimplantation done.. she stayed overnight in the hospital and then was released with the catheter still in for a few days.. since it has been removed I find it really difficult to cath her now. By the way.. she has Spina Bifida, so I've been cathing her 4 times a day since birth. Well now since she's had the surgery and the big catheter removed, i can't seem to get her drained. When the cath FINALLY gets into her urinary tract (which I am also having a hard time with now) the cath will fill up with bloody urine (which i was told would be normal for about a week) but it won't drain! I am even noticing small blood clots floating around inside of the catheter. I called her urologist and he didn't seem too bothered by it.. but I am really concerned.. she just had surgery, and I am worried about her not emptying her bladder properly and messing everything up! Can anyone relate to this???
