5wks, 6 days post op, tvt take down last week, need some encouragement! Desperate

I had tvt take down last week, start of week 5 post op. I have been unable to urinate AT ALL and have been self cathing since 2.5 weeks post op when foley cath was taken out. Doc said 4-5 days after cutting the tape I should be able to urinate on my own. Today is day 5 and NOTHING. I am so sick of self catherizing. I am so sick of the discharge from all the stitches. I am so sick of not feeling well. I am just so sick of it!!! I have been trying daily to just hang in there. I have been trying to encourage myself and be patient,,,but this self cathing for nearly 6 weeks with absolutely no urine output on my own has me very low.
Has anyone been unable to urinate at all, like me? Had tvt take down (cuting of sling)? Will I ever be normal again? Will I ever be able to go to the bathroom and just go? What is wrong with me?!! I sit and sit and relax and relax, and breath and pray and have tried the straw thing and it is just not flowing. I pray I am not the only one.
Please advise.
Thanks, Gay

Gay,

Oh, Sweetie, I'm sure you'll hear from Sisters who have shared your experience.

I just wanted to offer support and comfort and let you know I hope this is solved soon, so you'll be feeling better.

I can't imagine how exasperating this must be for you.

If your DR is not a urologist, I think you need to be seen by one. It sounds like it is time to call in a specialist.

Dear Gaylux: I wasn't able to urinate for 5 days after the cath came out and I was frustrated, so I can't even imagine how upset you must be. I pray that things will start getting better for you SOON. Best wishes to you, Aunt May
