Still having bladder pain well after surgery?

I am 8 weeks post op and my bladder pain is getting worse. I have taken antibiotics twice since the surgery (TVH.. leaving both ovaries) and this time my urine came back normal. However, I have severe "contractions" when I am urinating.. it does not burn.. just feels like a labor contraction but that of the bladder.
I am going to the bathroom 5 - 10 times during the night hours.. needless to say that I am lacking in the quality of my sleep. I have another doc app this wednesday. I was told that they could have snipped a nerve to the bladder/damaged a nerve.. or that my bladder was prolapsed.. Has this happen to any of you before? and if so do you mind sharing as I am beyond scared!

Still having bladder pain well after surgery?

I'm sorry to hear you are having such trouble. I really can't help as I am only 3 days post op. I will tell you though that my worst pain comes from when I have a full bladder - and I mean pain - yikes. Its hard to walk to the bathroom. Anyway, my doctor said that my bladder had a ton of scar tissue on it which she had to take off. Also some was attached to the abdominal wall.
I know this doesn't help you but I just wanted to share that I'm having pain there too. I hope at your appt this week they can get it resolved for you. Good luck!!

Thanks

I know for me, the first few days of being home where hard on my bladder! I did not have a catheter in place during surgery due to blood clotting problems. I was told that my bladder was completely attatched to my uterus. I also have endometriosis as well.. so I totally get the scar tissue part! I hope your pain clears up soon. Mine just seems to get me sometimes.. knocks the wind out of me!

I am also 8weeks post op. I had a Burch bladder supension done also. I am having the same type of pains. I was put on Enablex(sp) for the spasms and it seems to work. I did not take it last night, thinking it was time for me to ween myself off of it, and Girl did I pay for it today. Try talking to your Dr about medications for over active bladder like Detrol or Enablex. My Dr gave these to me right out of surgery and even sent me to see a urologist.

Thank you.. do you mind telling me why you needed the Burch bladder suspension? I have to be honest, I refuse (the stubborn part of me) to take any pharmaceuticals.. So this may be tricky for me.. Hmmm. I will go see a urologist though if the Obgyn is not helpful.
Thanks again.

Thanks again.
Had Burch for leaking issues. I would leak during the day at work and any coughing or sneezing. I still have some issues now, not so much with the coughing or sneezing. More with just being "wet" for lack of a better word with I am up moving around.
I hate taking pills for anything. But I have been doing better with the Enablex. So if that is what it takes to stop feeling like an 80 yr women and smelling like one to boot. Then that is what I will do.
I hope everything works out for you! Please keep me updated!
