Still cannot empty bladder!

I had my surgery April 27. I had many fibroids and one the size of a baseball grew through my uterus and pushed both overies and uterus to one side. My surgery lasted close to 5 hours and the dr made a 2 inch adomonial incesion to remove the last stuburn Fibroid. I stayed at the castle overnight. I have had bm and feeling overall pretty good taking only moltrin.
I left the hospital with a cath in since I was not able to pee on my own. I had it removed Monday. I was able to pee at that time but unable to empty my bladder and went to ER to have another cath put in. I am currently waiting on a call from my dr.
Will my bladder wake up?

Your bladder will wake up! My doctor left my cath in ten days because he said too many people had trouble if it came out sooner. I told him I wasnt too fond of my yellow spring purse! But I worked just fine when the day came. Hang in there!

Re: Still cannot empty bladder!

Thank you. Dr just called me and wants to leave it in for a week. He did remind me that major tramma occured inside me. *Yellow spring purse* is funny.
I kinda like sleeping throughout the whole night without getting up to pee! I will like it better though when I can pee on my own!
