Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Visible blood in the urinary tube (catheter) can be a symptom of bloody urine (hematuria). There are several possible causes of hematuria that need to be evaluated, including:
Kidney inflammation (glomerulonephritis)
Urinary tract stones
Urinary tract infection
Urinary system malignancies, for example: bladder cancer, prostate cancer (especially at an advanced stage)
Injury to the urinary wall in the installation of a urinary hose
Blood clotting system disorders, for example: hemophilia, dengue fever
Side effects of certain drugs that increase the risk of bleeding, for example: warfarin, heparin, aspirin
So that the cause of hematuria can be identified and treated appropriately, you are advised to consult directly with a urologist who is treating your father. The doctor will perform a systematic history, comprehensive physical examination, and can consider supporting examinations according to indications that might be found, for example: blood, urine, ultrasound (USG) examination, uretrography, etc. The doctor may also consider adjusting the type / dose of medication according to the patient's current condition. The prognosis regarding danger is very dependent on the underlying cause of the symptoms, how severe the cause is, the general condition of the patient, and the quality of the treatment provided. In principle, it is highly recommended to take the patient to the doctor so that the cause of bloody urine can be evaluated and treated.
As a suggestion, your father is advised to drink water in a volume that suits his individual needs (consult this with the doctor who treats patients directly), routinely replace the urine hose according to the doctor's recommended schedule, eat regularly balanced nutritious food, and maintain hygiene body, including the area around the genitals.
