Bladder Spasms!

I am 8 weeks post op today.
Had an 8 cm hematoma that is desolving and shrinking.
Been on antibioptics (3 rounds) for the infection that resulted from the hematoma.
Still on an antispasmodic for the bladder spasms.
Alternating Ibupropen with the antispasmodic for pain.

My doctor thinks it is just taking me longer to heal because there was so much work done and the hematoma set me back a little.

Once the blood and mucous stopped draining from the hematoma, I noticed the urine on the pad.
Not leaking in gobs, but there is enough to change a pantiliner every 1-2 hours. I have had CT's and an IVP which showed nothing unusual except for the hematoma.

I'm just getting really impatient because I am still having the urge to go with pain as many as 3 times an hour!

I've been keeping track in a journal, this past weekend i had 2 days where I went 33 times in 24 hours. At night I'm getting 2-3 hours sleep in and not any more on the pads.

I just want to know if anyone else had this frequency without the incontinence and did it slow down?

I can go tinkle as much as every 15 to 20 minutes. Yes, it is annoying. My problem is a potential interstitial cystitis (bladder inflammatory disease.) I go in this Friday to the hospital to have my bladder stretched under general anesthesia. I also had lots of urethra pain.

I was on detrol la to help control the urgency, but that left my mouth so dry. Wow, it could be a number of things. Have you talked to a urologist about this?

She wants to give it a little more time, then a uroligist referral.

Bladder Spasms!

Hi there,

I am so sorry to hear you are still having problems post-op. I know that the bladder can take a long time to settle down after being interfered with, when I had my catheter out after the fistula repair I could happily go every 20 minutes and I would wake up every hour during the night.

This did gradually settle down though and I would imagine that you should settle down with time. Perhaps if you continued your journal it would help you see an improvement which would encourage you. However, I would definitely ask for a referral to a Urologist if the problems persist, especially to find out the cause of the incontinence. I had a normal cystogram and IVP but still had a very small fistula causing leaking vaginally.

I hope you get some answers and relief soon.

Thanks for the encouragement.
The journaling does seem to help, where I can see longer stretches. I'm a teacher and just want to be able to get through my kinderten morning by fall!
