I think you're already at the complications that can happen, I remember talking to you before. You really need to be followed by a urologist and most likely be straight cathing yourself rather then have a foley. I'm surprised you haven't blocked solid by 60 days. Foleys don't last forever. I wish you had access to a good urologist and hospital. If I were your dr here's what I'd do. 1. pull the foley, 2. teach you to straight cath 3, put you on some good antibiotics after I did a culture and sensitivity, and leave you on them long enough to get rid of the infection. If you have flank pain you most likely have infection in your kidney. That is serious.
