What are these tiny white strings in my urine after undergoing catherization?

69 year old female just finished taking Kelflex for E- Coli. I just urinated and it looked tiny white strings or worms in my urine. Yesterday after catherization urine was clear. What was that in my urine?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
it may be due to pus formation or present of some worm in urine
if infection is there there might be other symptom like fever ,pain ,burning etc
as u have finished treatment for e coli chance of infection are high
but better to do urine examination and consult doctor
drink more water and take care

Hello. Welcome to HCM.
Wud like to know if u r cathetorized now also coz it could b related to catheter contamination. If not then r u sure its not any fluid from vagina which may have stringy mucus? Bladder worms r possible but not common. Anyways if it repeats its best to get ur urine routine n culture done.drink lots of water n maintain hygeine
