Abdomen pain after urination

Have a question. In the last month or so I have had pain after I urinate in my abdomen and I don't know what it is. The doc tested for UTI - that wasn't it. My abdomen still pains me on a fairly regular basis - almost daily - and my surgery was in Dec. of 2011. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Could be bladder spasm. Any other symptoms? Does it only occur after you urinate?

Re: Abdomen pain after urination

I have the same problem. I had it right after surgery and they said it was a UTI which I was treated for. I have had the same pain off and on since surgery a year ago. Last month the pain got worse and I went to the doctor I again was treated for UTI. They said the infection is clear. I continue to still have pain on at the end of urinating. They tell me it is bladder irritation from drinking caffine. Ok, decreased caffine, still have pain on a regular basis at the end of urinating. Any other ideas or help anyone has?????

Re: Abdomen pain after urination

I am going through the same thing and got the same diagnosis of uti. I am seeing my Doctor again tomorrow and will ask him more questions regarding the pain radiating into my stomach/side. I am only 3weeks post-op but the pain seems to be getting worse, especially during and after urination. i will let you all know what he says

TexasJessica,

I am glad you are seeing your doctor. It is possible it is normal post op pain from your bladder being handled but it is best to be safe and see your doctor. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Re: Abdomen pain after urination

Hi..you might want to get checked for PFD (pelvic floor dysfunction). I was told because I was in pain for so long and that the body reacts by tensing up my pelvic floor muscles were "tight" for lack of a better word and my nerves sensitive. I was sent to physio to have my "trigger points" done. Physio confirmed this and my muscle actually started to spasm during the assessment. This explains my pain, my bladder not emptying and bloating. I started to have pain during urination again but doesn't surprise me as this was recent and I've been doing exercises to relax. PS: I did have pain during void sometimes right after surgery and the doc said it was o.k but still was experiencing abd.pain.

I'm having the same pain and it's very sharp right at the end of voiding and right after. My dr is sending me to a urologist with concerns of interstitial cystitis. I never had these problems before my hysterectomy. I really feel they are related!

Re: Abdomen pain after urination

I have been having the same problem. My hysterectomy was back in February and last saturday I started having really bad cramping pains in my lower belly. It would also hurt after I peed. So I took some medicine for a UTI and drank a ton of cranberry juice. I felt better but now the pain is coming back. I don't have to pee all the time and it doesn't burn when I go, so I really don't think it's a UTI. It's mainly just the pain. Any one know what could this possible be? If I still have it next week, I'm going to call the doctor.

Re: Abdomen pain after urination

I have this too.

Has your doc considered Interstitial Cystitis? also the bladder is close to the uterus so the hysterectomy could have disturbed it (as can a catheter after the surgery) In my case I can hold more and it's less frequent (I had a neurogenic bladder pre op which has dissapeared but now I have this instead). The doc might give you something to stop the spasms and do some bladder training to get it back in sync.
