Trouble with bladder after hysterectomy

From the Ask a Doctor - Hysterectomy Related Questions Articles List

SHARING IS CARING


Is it normal to have trouble holding your urine after having a robotic hysterectomy? I notice since my hysterectomy that I have trouble holding my bladder. When I gotta go--I gotta go now or I start to dribble! Itm Too young for that. Would kegels help? Or can you suggest something else to strengthen that area?


Answered by Deborah Wilson, M.D.

Were your ovaries removed?

The bladder and urethra are dependent on estrogen for normal function. When hormones are removed, women often begin to experience incontinence issues. A vaginal estrogen preparation should help.


The responses in the "Ask a Doctor" articles are provided by M.D./Surgeons with credentials in their linked profiles. The HysterSisters.com staff thanks the doctors for their participation and reminds all readers to discuss their medical concerns with their personal physicians for specific information about their health choices, as this is in no way intended to take the place of members consulting with their own physicians.
