Bladder Spasms

Glad I found this web site. I had my Hys almost ten years ago and didn't have any bladder problems then. My question now is, does anyone have bladder spasms that aren't painful. Kind of like muscle tics or small, squeezing muscle contractions. I'm thinking, because I feel a little bladder discomfort, that I may be trying to get an infection. However, I've never had the "contraction" feeling before.

Bladder Spasms

Hi and welcome to HysterSisters Glad you found us also!!

I am 5 yrs Post-Op and the only real Bladder spasms I experienced was in my early recovery which my Dr told me was normal due to the handling of the bladder during surgery...he said it could be quite temperamental

I do notice I experience UTI's & bladder infections more frequently now. Anytime it starts feeling uncomfortable or twinging like pains, for me it usually means the beginning of an infection.
Here are some links from our Resources that contain some good detailed info on these. Perhaps they can hold some further insight into if this is what could be going on with you:

Urinary Tract Infections: The Facts:

UTI - Causes - Symptoms - Treatments - Prevention:

Here is the link to the section they came from, it lists some other excellent info into Bladder issues & conditions:

Good Luck I hope you can soon find some answers & relief into whats going on
Please keep us posted on your progress...((hugs))

Bladder Spasms

To my (drugged) recollection, I've had two bladder spasms. One big one in the hospital right after they took the catheter out. The second was when I was walking in a mall at the end of last week. I think I just over did it.

It doesn't hurt, just feels weird. Expecially when you are walking in public and your body starts doing things on it's own. Must be how men feel all the time.

Bladder Spasm Revisited

Today I noticed a feeling of "fullness" in my vagina. Feels like something is swollen; also a few pains/aches in my abdoman. Looking through some links on the internet, I found that Claritin-D, which I've been taking this week, can cause vaginal swelling and UTI's. Going to call the doctor tomorrow just to make sure. Thanks for answering.

Yea, my vaginal has felt that way too. As for my stomach, blah! I've found that if I don't eat, I'm okay. I've got to stick to Cambridge drinks (for the nutrients) and yogurt for awhile.

I also had a TVH, kept ovaries, and never had any problems after surgery (except for a little pain). I guess I'm worried about a prolapsed bladder or whatever. I know that can happen after you've had parts removed. Don't want to go through surgery again. Hate being put to sleep.

Yea, I've worried about things falling out too. A lot of my question have been about the vaginal vault. Because my cervix was removed and the area was just sewn up, I am concerned with damage now or later. I guess these thoughts are part of the recovery process.

Bladder Spasm Revisited

I can remember how I felt after my surgery. "Am I going to bleed all over the floor/cabinets/toilet/bath tub again?" Every ache made me nervous. I also have anxiety/panic disorder (hereditary; but got much worse after my Hys), which makes things seem unbearable to me until I have answers to my questions. I'm 45 years old so I think some of my problems are coming with the act of growing older. Anyhow, I'll talk with my doctor about what's going on now (and, believe me, I'll get answers). Hope you're getting along ok. Thanks for talking with me.
