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.
