1) Just wondering if anyone here has been prescribed Ditropan or any other med for bladder spasms.
My dr told me that I might have bladder spasms during this healing time. I have and I've been taking Ditropan as prescribed. (3x/day) The thing is that I don't really feel like its helping. They gave me a B&O suppository while I was in the hospital and that seemed to help a lot more, but for some reason he won't prescribe it to me now. I constantly have a full feeling in my bladder like I have to go, but aside from when I really do have to, its just a little trickle. I'm wondering how long I should wait before I start to worry. I know that you all aren't dr's and that I really should be talking to him, and I will on my next visit, next week, but in the meantime... any thoughts or suggestions?
2) Also, the dr said I had a lot of scar tissue in my abdomen due to the infections (infected urine). What can I expect from this? Right now I'm still really sore and I get a bit of pain in my abdomen after walking or being up and active for a few hours.
3) Also, my incision is healing nicely (did I tell ya it was a hip to hip incision?)
However, the incision has a really hard tissue around it in several places. Could this be scar tissue also?
4) I constantly get hot flashes and night sweats, but I still have my ovaries. Could this be due to all the medications, (antibiotics and painkillers) I've been taking? or all the stress I've been under with this? I still have my ovaries....
I know, I know, I'll ask the dr about all of this on the next visit, but I just wondered if anyone had any thoughts or suggestions for me in the meantime.
Finally, thought you all might be interested in knowing that the dr who did the original hysterectomy, really screwed up. It appears he left a clamp on my ureter during surgery and then sealed me back up.
