I hope I spelled that right..
I hate those things..they always give me a bruised bladder and then I can't pee and the pain is unbearable.

At the top of the cervix (at the entrance to the uterus ,where they remove the uterus from the cervix ) I had some minor discomfort and a little bleeding about a week post-op as this area healed but that was all..........Blessings,Renee

I also had one put in once I was out in the OR. I was thankful for it right after surgery because it was painful getting up and out of the bed. Once it was removed, I couldn't leave the hospital until I was able to go on my own.

You will most likely have a catheter placed while you are under anesthesia, but it should be removed before you wake up, (unless your Dr. does it differently). I was amazed because I really felt the urge to go before I was out of the recovery area. At first I thought it was just the sensation from having the catheter, but the dam was about to burst by the time they got me to my room. First thing I did when I got there was go potty What a relief! The nurse told me I had cleared the biggest hurdle for going home. About 1-1/2 hours later I was out the door!!! I wasat the castle a total of 7 hours. But only 5 hours from the time of surgery! It still boggles my brain how they can do it so quickly. Best wishes to you

Mine was put in after I was out in OR and I guess taken out while in recovery. I don't remember it at all and had no problems.
