Hello, I had my complete hysterectomy Jan 14th and since then I have found it very difficult to pee. I don't have any sensation or urge to go. I've had back pain off and on but was told that it was normal. I went to the ER Sunday night cause the pain was bad and after my urine culture came back clean I was told I pulled my back and told to see a urologist. I had my appointment today and gave my urine. They found that it was full of white blood cells and when they were doing a bladder scan they foud I had 734ml of urine in me, so they quickly cathederized me. They couldnt believe that I have over 900ml come out of me! I now have a foley in from now until they find out what's wrong. They had a extremely hard time inserting it. Has this happened to anyone else and I so what caused it? I have a kidney scan and a full stomach ultra sound and cat scan scheduled in the next for days. I'm really nervous... Thank you for your advice!!
The ER didn't feel the full bladder? It could be that your bladder just needs a rest and wearing a foley for a few days or so will help you get the sensation back. Be sure you drink plenty of water. Did they give you any antibiotics?
That was what I said!! Unfortunately I was sent to the ER Express and they leave at 9pm and it was 915. My doctor was not happy. I got some results back and I have a UTI and Bladder infection. She put me on AZO and Cipro. I waiting to hear back about my kidneys. She thinks there is a very good chance I have a kidney infection as well and might need IV antibiotics. I've been drink tons of water and cranberry juice. I have needed to empty my bag every hour or so, I still have no sensation but I have pain! Tons of pain, I can't sit up right and to move. There are times when the pain gets worse and I've noticed it's when my bag starts to fill up.
I had my surgery on July 17th, 2012. My bladder has been "asleep" ever since, I have been told that it may wake up and may not. I have trained myself to go every few hours. I have no problem urinating, just no sensation that I have to go.
Hi I had my hysterectomy sept 2011, u sound just like me, I posted yesterday, I did have the urge to go though but I was retaining 1200ml so I think my bladder was near bursting point, I had urethra catheterisation for months trying urethra dilation and self catheterisation but like u they struggled to get catheter in so no way I could!! I now now superpubic catheter which was fitted last June, it's fine I cope well it's just the 12 weekly change it's horrendous. I had all the tests your booked in for, bladder scan showed bladder works 110% so strong but something blocking, cameras only find scar tissue, I'm now going in on 22nd June for a different consultant to stretch ureathra to the max. I hope you get some answers soon x
