I'm not sure why kind of surgery you had but I had a LAVH and still have my ovaries. Based on my experience, I would recommend you cont. take it easy and if you feel abnormal pelvic or bladder or even bowel pain, get tested for bladder and/or BV infections -- they seem to have gotten the best of me post-surgery. I wish you well in your cont. healing stage and hope this email helps. Sure is tough being a woman! ConcerndPatient

Did you have any other symptons of an infection? (fever, sickness) I have been having pain since my hysterectomy and now it is getting worse.

How many have had a proper urine pathology test done? Where the whole vulva area is completely washed and antibacterialised before the urine is passed, with only a mid-flow specimen taken - before antibiotics are prescribed? Many bacteria can migrate through the normal sweating process, from the anus area through to the vulvar area, and when urine is passed, this can be washed into the specimen jar, giving a false reading. Antibiotics can then be needlessly prescribed, causing more problems etc. ??? Just wondering???

Always curious............gee.

10 wks post-op bladder pain, anyone?

Hi Everyone,

Wanted to update everyone on my bladder problem. Spoke to doctor and he wanted me to take a home bladder test first. It came out negative. He said being that surgery has only been 3 weeks things are still swollen and it might take a little more time for the bladder to work properly. Told me he has never had any issues concerning this kind of repair. He is putting me ot detrol to help relax the bladder and if things are not better by my 6 week check up he will have me consult with the Urologist.

Seems like lots of people are haveing bladder and bowl issues. I to am having problems keeping my bowls flowing. They are either hard or runny. All I can say is this surgery was not easy as pie. I think I might of had high expectations. Was hoping to be working from home by now but I am still to exhausted.

I am having mom pick me up today to take a walk around the mall. maybe this will help me regain some energy.

I thank everyone on this site for there comforting words and support.

4 wks post op bladder spasms

my surgery was on oct 22. By the weeks end I developed uti infection. My hospital stay was horrible. The catheter was in wrong and stayed in to long. I have had very painful bladder spasms along with yeast infection after being on 3 different antibiotics. I am currently taking ditropan xl for almost 1wk. I am starting to ease the pain but its still noticeable. I had ct scan and urology scope and negative for any damage. I was told that it is possibly just severe trauma and needs time to heal. I just wonder how much time. If the pain was anywhere else. I sit all day for my job which isn't making it any easier to deal with. I hope for my 6wks checkup I will be over all of this. It really gets old dealing with this kind of pain day after day.

I'm so glad to hear you got to a doctor and you had it looked into. Hopefully it is just your bladder getting used to its new position in your body. I'm like you, my expectations were high from all the stories I have heard from friends about how things went for them. They are all different; our bodies are different, God made us all one by one and completely one of a kind. Maybe they are stronger at healing and I and stronger at others things in life that they are not. All I know is these surgeries I have had took more strength and healing time then I thought and NOW my friends tell me that I need to chill, my healing takes time. When I asked before surgery about their healing times, they were up and at it in no time. I now realize they were all just stories and we all heal differently. Take your time and lets let out bodies heal on OUR time, not doctors, or friends, but OUR time. Also be careful at the mall walking, if you over do it a little and think you feel that energy now, it may hurt your lower back later when it's time to rest. The stomach area is just flopping around and we tend to walk different and everything to compensate for pain and tenderness there and later we suffer with lower back pain. Take care and God bless on your healing, Holly

10 wks post-op bladder pain, anyone?

Have you discussed the possibility of IC (interstitial cystosis). I researched this online and it is common in women and symptoms are bladder pain, frequency, urgency and pain when voiding bladder. Otherwise, sounds like you could have a bacterial vaginosis infection. That's my doctor recently diagnosed me with based on my continued complaints of bladder pain and odorous discharge. These are just suggestions. Good look with your ongoing pain.

Thank you Concerned Patient and others for the replies. I have looked into the IC possibility online and it could be that as well as a bacterial vaginal infection which would make sense due to my just now becoming sexually active again. I will follow up on these with the doctor and see if I can have some tests done to rule them out. Thanks again for the input....I know someday we will all be pain free...
