Hmm, I'd call the doc on that one. I had issues with mine - baby girl decided she wanted to block the catheter so I couldn't empty my bladder until after surgery (and then OMG there was so much pee). The first few days after I felt a lot of pressure when I peed, but it wasn't exactly painful. If you're having pain, call. Might be a bladder infection or something like that.
I didn't have it with this c-section surgery- but when I had my appendix out it hurt like a mofo to pee... the catheter had irritated my lady bits badly. (They re-inserted it 4x in one day because they wanted me to keep trying to pee on my own, and when I couldn't, they would re-cath me.
I'd address it with your doc just to make sure you don't have a UTI (the cath can introduce bacteria to your bladder.) But it might just be bruising/irritation.
I would call your doctor just in case, it's not that uncommon to get a UTI when you have a catheter. It could just be irritation, but since it's just starting up now I would call to be on the safe side.
