8 Months Post-Op; Weird Bladder Issues

Robotic hysterectomy 8/3/11 (uterus only was removed.) Cannot pinpoint when the weird bladder issues started but these are my symptoms: urge to pee to the point of a sharp pain in bladder like it's about to burst, but when I do pee, it's not painful; peeing is slow at times, other times comes out strong. No UTIs. No urine leakage when coughing, laughing, lifting. No having to get up to pee in the night. Bowel movements are normal, uneventful. But when I happen to have gas, I can feel the 'bubble' working its way through the bladder area with a slight sharp pain til it passes. It almost feels like because of the new space created by the missing uterus, my bladder and bowels are shifting around? Maybe? Sometimes the pain when peeing is breath-stopping until I can relax to allow my bladder to empty it. Issue is this is not a constant problem. There are days when it happens, days when I feel no pains, peeing is great. Cannot find any common trigger of the painful episodes. Complication is my beloved Gynecologist of 20 years is semi-retired; office visits are hard to come by and I (stupidly) don't want to start all over again at this point in my life with another doctor. Your thoughts are appreciated and I'm always thinking of and wishing my fellow sisters the very best of health, peace and healing.

Love & Light,
Ardy xo

Re: 8 Months Post-Op; Weird Bladder Issues

It sounds a bit like bladder spasms. I had them a lot prior to my hyster because my rectocele was pressing on my bladder causing the spasms. This is probably the best time for you to find a new gyne before your doctor retires. I know how hard it is to start over but sometimes a fresh pair of eyes is a blessing.

Re: 8 Months Post-Op; Weird Bladder Issues

thanks for your advice and support. the bladder spasms symptoms seemed to be the closest. and i *know* i need to find a new doctor. crazy thing is, i work at an ob/gyn office with 7 physicians....none of whom i would feel comfortable seeing. they know enough about me, they don't need to know *everything* haha...

you are right. i'll certainly think of my health as a priority and look into finding another physician

*HUGS* I don't think I would want my office to know "everything" about me either!
