Brief Answer:
Catheter might need to be replaced.

Detailed Answer:
Good day!

The catheter that you have right now might be occluded that is why very little or no urine is coming out. That may also be the reason why urine is going out on the side of the tube and not inside and out to the urine bag. This usually happens after 1-2 weeks of an indwelling catheter. You may need to go back to your health provider to have it replaced. An occluded catheter is prone to infection and you may develop serious infection because of it.
