I had a TVH and TVT and perioplasty on 11/6. My bladder was nicked and as a result I had to keep the catheter in for 6 days. It ws taken out yesterday 11/12 and I came home and was able to pee. It wasn't a whole lot but I haven't benn drinking a whole lot. I wondered the rest of the day if my bladder was emptying all the way. I had to strain a little to go, but I never felt a great urge to go. However when I got up in the middle of the night to go, I had to strain to get it all out and I felt a throbbing pain. No burning just throbbing pain kinda in the area where your urethra is. I took a good hour for the pain to subside. When I woke up in the morning same thing. I am terrified I will have to get catheter back in. Or is this normal for the first few days? Thanks
I look forward to seeing answers to your question. I had my hysterectomy on 11/9 and my bladder was attached to my uterus so they had to detach it and sew it up. I came home with a catheter and I'm stressing about it. There was blood in it yesterday and little pieces of body tissue. And the worst thing is the gas pains. I know it's only been 6 days and I should be patient but I totally didn't expect this. A catheter and gas pains were not on the menu. I just sneezed a minute ago and thought I would die!
Glad to know you are out there and that I'm not alone.
Hi.. my bladder was also cut and was sent home with the catherter for 10 days...It felt a little wierd the first few days after it was out but now I feel totally fine....I guess people sometimes get a urinary tract infection with the catherter so if it still bothers you I would call, maybe you might have a uti..
