Urethra/bladder damage after catheter!?

I had an emergency c-section 4 1/2 months ago. When i had the catheter put in, it was the most painful part by far, is that normal?

Since then, it hurts to wee but it doesn't feel like a UTI. I also have problems actually emptying my bladder. I have to relax for any wee to come out and sometimes it just stops and i know i haven't finished yet as it gives me a tummy ache but i have to wait 1/2 an hour and try again.

Has anyone had this before? I told my doctor at my 1 week check but he said it was probably just still a bit sore from the catheter and would go soon, but it hasn't. I didn't mention it at my 6 week check because i just wanted to get out of there although i know i should have. I really don't want to go back, DH is trying to get me to make an appointment but the thought of it makes me feel sick so we've made a compromise that i'll post here to see if anyone else has had it.

It doesn't sound normal to me, last year I had to have 2 catheters within 2 days of each other due to going into urine retention caused by a fibroid. The second one I came home with and had in for a fortnight (had a little tap rather than a bag-so glamorous!)
Mine never hurt at any stage at all, in fact I was never really aware of them at all.
I would certainly go back to your GP.

It's rubbish you are having to go through this when you should be enjoying your little one.
