I cant pee straight!

3 weeks after my TAH/BSO/Burch for my bladder surgery I can no longer pee straight, It goes everywhere but no stream. ITS hard to get a clean catch for my UTI tests I have had to take the past 2 months! Anyone else with this issue? My Dr says its still early in recovery so its a wait and see thing. I dont like it.. I wonder if its scare tissue... I have UTI issues but lab keeps telling me Im with in limits so no meds. I finally had to get an AZO UTI test and it tested postive... so back to the lab for test number three! For the past week I have had urge issues and then cant seem to go but tiny bit... . tell me thats normal limits FOR PETE SAKES!! UGH, Thanks for any replies...

I cant pee straight!

I am 5 months out (TAH) and totally understand what your talking about. I still can't pee straight, nor can I hold it for very long. I have actually been standing there and all of a sudden start dripping, no signs that I even had to go. And yes, I get the urge and then have what I call stage fright (can't go). Otherwise, everything else has been good. Sorry I don't have an answer for you but at least I know now I am not alone!

Oh wow, so did you ask the doctor what is happening?? Does your lower back kidney area get sore at times too??

I cant pee straight!

While I didn't have any bladder repairs, there have been times that I cannot pee straight. There was one point where I had to be really careful or I would've been making messes all over the bathroom floor! I'm not sure how scar tissue would affect you peeing straight, but I guess anything is possible.

in there and keep in contact with your doctor. If you're really concerned, schedule an appt with the doctor so the doctor can check things out.

Kim thanks for the reply... well I figured if scar tissue was forming around the opening it may cause the opening to close up a bit causing the problem. I will wait and see I am still talking to my Dr about it...... thanks again for the reply.

I also noticed that it's not so much a straight (?) line anymore the last time I was at the dr. No other symptoms though so not really worried about it.

I cant pee straight!

Scar tissue in the uretha can definitely affect the stream, as can inflammation. I think sometimes we get these problems from being catheterized. Swelling takes months sometimes to subside. Scar tissue, however needs to be seen by a urology surgeon. Any blockage in the uretha can cause the bladder to not empty completely or back up a bit which leads to chronic infections. I've had several uretha/bladder issues over the yrs beginning with a blockage in the uretha, that was a birth defect. When I peed, it sounded like a water hose with a thumb over it, it sprayed. It became a problem when I got married. I had chronic infections for 5 years! Finally, I went to a specialist who did a cysto, enlarged the uretha and removed the blockage. Hope this helps.

Great info! Thanks.. If my last urine test is a NEG again, I will make sure I talk to the dr about what to do next, maybe it does just need time? Again thanks for the info..

I cant pee straight!

Well I tested positive for a UTI.. so taking meds for 12 days.. I have a small bladder too! I have always had to go to the potty more then anyone else at work after a cup of coffee or a coke with in 20 mins I HAD TO GO! I am sure you know that feeling.. SO after 3 tests, FINALLY they agreed I had a UTI.. my kidneys were hurting for a few weeks.. too. If I get anohter UTI, my dr is going to have me in to empty my bladder and then cat the rest of my urine to see if I retain much.. hate the thought of that UGH.. even though I have had it done a few times, I am not comfortable with tubes that I worry about being sterile going in my tubes/bladder you know? the last 2 times I had to do it I ended up with a UTI from it.. YIKES
