Frequent Urination after Surgery

ok - This is the start of week 3 since surgery I guess (Oct 30th) TAH - Lap procedure - and although pain is really minimal I can't understand why I have to go to the bathroom so often. I'd love to get ONE full night's sleep without having to get up and go during the night and during the day it seems I'm in the bathroom every 30 minutes.

Is this normal and how long does this last? I'm concerned there may be more of a problem? Doc took urine specimen to see if there might be bladder infection - but I've not heard the results of lab work yet.

anyone else having this problem?

Yep, I'm going more frequent now too, and if I hold it for too long it hurts really bad. I know it's not an infection (have had several bladder/kidney infections in the past) it's a different kind of pain.

Also when I go to the bathroom it comes out a lot slower than it did before. I'm almost at week 4 and it's getting better (not going quite as much and not as slow as it was) but still hurts if I hold it too long.

TJHouston,

Having the same issues here. I'm 29 days out today. It hurts more if I hold it than before the surgery.

Hoping this is just a temporary setback. I had a TVH and know she must have moved my bladder. I think that aggravated it.

I can't answer the nightly thing though. I've never in my life gone a whole night w/o peeing. I'm usually up several times per night anyway. That hasn't changed.

If you're not already you might want to try drinking water. I've noticed that certain things seem to aggravate my bladder even more.
