Question - What if after 12 days my bladder still has a hole in it? What if after 12 days my bladder still has a hole in it?

So I go for the cystogram on Monday. What if they instill the dye and the bladder still has a hole in it? What are the chances? I have read that it takes about 10 days for the bladder to heal. I am 30 yrs old, healthy. Have been drinking 1/2- 3/4 gal of water a day since the surgery. I mean, I know what will happen, they will put the cath back.

BUT I want to hear what others have encountered. What are my chances of it still leaking? The nurse at the office said well we want know until the cystogram. I NEED TO know more than that. Monday is a long way off.

Ga,

It may be nothing like what you have had done but I had surgery 4 years ago on my bladder as it was stuck with my uterus, they had to make a hole in my bladder and put a tube connected to a bag to collect my urine, this was done because my bladder had been cut the hole took about a month to heal i have a small scar to this day.
I am scheduled to have an Hysterectomy on 24th Aug so hoping my bladder doesnt need surgery again.
Hope all goes well for you,

Elaine,
Did they stitch your bladder or let it heal on its own? Good luck with your upcoming surgery.

Hole in Bladder

Hi Gan,

I did not have any stitches in the hole it just healed on it's own, however whilst it was healing it did leak a little each time I went to the toilet.

Thank you for your caring and support, hope all goes well with you,

GA nurse,

I just replied to your other post, too. If you do get the cath out today, make sure and ask how often you should urinate. I got my cath out about 3 weeks after hyst, and they were concerned that my bladder not get too full so that a fistula wouldn't form. Also, when the cath was in, I tried to drink lots of fluids. Afterwards, the uro told me to not drink too much as they were still hopeful my bladder would finish healing correctly.

Good luck!
Dee
