Scar Tissue

Hello all I am new here. My name is Stacie and I just recently had my hysterectomy (the surgery didn't go so well - but an better now). I have had other women tell me that sometimes there is a possibilty of the scar tissue from an abdominal hysterectomy adhering to the bladder. Can anyone tell me how you know this? Begin to suspect this? How it can be diagnosed? I have a pain when urinating but not when I go but when my bladder constricts from being full (like a tugging behind my incision) so I am convinced that this is not a bladder infection. Has anyone incountered this? Any information or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Hi Stacie, I don't know about the scar tissue, I guess that you would have quite a bad pain if you had some adhesions to the bladder. Also your doc would be able to tell that. Pain when urinating is usually a bladder spasm, I had those for 4 weeks after surgery and then they stopped. If you haven't had a test for a bladder infection, you should go to your doc just to be sure. There is also a tugging feeling at the beginning while stitches and muscles are starting to heal. Take care!

Thanks so much for the response. I will definitely call and see what it is up!

Dear Stacie, I still have pain/pressure/soreness with my bladder as well. But mine is getting better. Be sure to ask your doctor about this during your 2 week check up or call the office and talk to a nurse. All the best to you!!

I called yesterday and they had me do a urine sample and gave me a prescription to take care of the spasms that my bladder is having (it works but now my urine is neon orange!). I will get an antibiotic when the results come back. My biggest fear is that it is the scar tissue attaching to my bladder (scar tissue is not my friend - my surgery was like 6 hrs because I had so much scar tissue from my c-section 10 yrs ago). I don't want to go back into the hospital for more surgery.

Hi Stacie..Don't worry!!!! I am 6 and 1/2 weeks post op. I still have bladder spasms when I finish peeing, there is a weird feeling like my bladder is still sensitive. I asked my doctor last wednesday at my post op exam. He said that bladder problems are common in the weeks following surgery. The bladder gets moved around, and then it has to re-position itself after the uterus is removed, so you feel some twinges of pain, spasms, etc. If you read here, so any women have this after a hyst.

I definitely am trying to take it as it comes. I had the pain for 5 days before I even thought about calling the dr to find out what was going on - I have this high tolerence for pain and this "need" to let things go. The only thing that made me call is that when I had my TAH my oldest son was at the hospital and when I came out of the surgery (I was a mess I had lost a little over half of my complete blodo volumn) he completely broke down because he has never seen me like that and I never want him to have to see me like that again so that means doing everything I can so that I don't have to have a repeat surgery and scare him like that again. Thanks for the advice and letting me know that I am not the only one dealing with this pain and these symptoms.
