Bladder tacking

I am 2.5 weeks post-op from da Vinci total hysterectomy. I'm in my early 30's and doc also tacked the bladder.

Is it normal to still have some bladder bulge after a "tacking"? Is this something I should notify my doc about? Or will it correct over time?

Re: Bladder tacking

Hi LilEm,

Most likely what you are seeing is swollen tissue which is not unusual. If you are having trouble voiding or develop unusual pain then you should call your doctor. Please be sure to follow your post op instructions carefully, especially with your bladder repair. This means no lifting of anything over 5 lbs, no bending, pushing, pulling or squatting until your doctor releases you.

Thanks. Guess I was just overly optimistic that I'd have a nice firm 'tube' down there once again.
