Severe lower back, butt, leg pain specifically on the opposite side of kidney tube. Have a catheter inside post bladder surgery. Cause of pain?

My husband had bladder surgery and a kidney tube put in a few weeks ago. He was sent home with a catheter and still has it in. But now he is experiencing severe low back/butt/leg and calf pain, pain is on the opposite side as the kidney tube. Could it be just from walking a little different with the catheter in? Or sciatica?

difficult to answer your question without knowing the surgery details, why was it done? what is pathology? was it an open surgery? etc.
His symptoms could be related or unrelated to his surgery. they could be due to sciatica , however post surgery, any fluid collection in the abdominal cavity , also deep vein thrombosis needs to be ruled out. please consult his treating doctor. take care
