bladder spasms

I'm 4 weeks out and still having pain when I urinate. I read 3 weeks ago that this is normal, but I was wondering if it is normal to still have the pain after 4 weeks. It is not as bad as the first week, but is still somewhat painful. Thanks

Be sure to call your doctor and see if they want you to come in. It could be a urinary tract infection.

My bladder felt weird for about 4 to 5 months post-op , various things, couldn't tell when my bladder was full, felt like I couldn't get it all out when I urinated, felt like I needed to pee again right after I had gone, etc., etc.

Hope you feel better soon!

urinary problems

I'm five weeks out and still have that. I just finished a week of antibiotics for a urinary tract infection, which helped but didn't eliminate the feelings. I think we both need to stay in touch with our doctors on this. Especially at this point, I wouldn't think of it as normal without being checked out thoroughly by your doctor.

Wishing you and all of us a speedy recovery!

bladder spasms

I'm 3 weeks out and wondering about this same thing. Was going to post a question. Sounds like I need to call my dr. and see if I need antibiotics. It helps to hold my stomach when I urinate, but it's very painful. Is only 3 weeks out normal for bladder spasms?

The only other issue I have is lower back pain, which I have read may be normal as well. I have a really hard time bending over, getting up or sitting down. My back seems more painful than my incision.

I also have "hard" areas around my incision that my doctor says is just bruising and will go away. I hope it does.

Let me know if all this is normal.

bladder spasms

Friday will be 4 weeks for me and I've had pain urinating for 2 weeks. They put me on Cipero 2 times now. I call the doctor tomorrow afternoon to see what I should do. The nurse said he may take a culture and test it to see why the Cipero didn't clear up the infection if it's a infection. If not I have to go to a urologist for further testing. I'll keep you posted as what happens with me. It doesn't hurt as much and it's a weird feeling when I pee. No lower back pain.

bladder spasms

In my experience, the bladder spasms were probably the most uncomfortable part of my recovery. I didn't think they would ever go away...but they finally did! I actually called the doctor about the painful spasms early on and again mentioned it again at my 6 week post-op appointment (and they tested me for a UTI at that time and all was well)...and both times he said it was a natural part of the healing process and reminded me that they had to do a lot of work in that area. The spasms lasted at least 6 weeks for me, progressively getting better over time...and then they eventually subsided and are now completely gone! (Thank you Lord).

It's always good to get it checked out with your doctor just to be sure...and remember, this too shall pass!

Blessings and Prayers for a speedy recovery,
