Brief Answer:
Yes after 4 weeks it would return to normal.

Detailed Answer:
yes after 4 weeks bladder function would return to normal but whether you will be able to urinate or not would be determined by what caused the inability to urinate and put in the foley catheter. If the primary problem is not addressed the you might not be able to urinate. I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for.
