Bladder adhesions

I just saw a urologist this week. It has been 16 weeks since my TAH surgery in March. At 8 weeks after my surgery I complained about uncontrollable urine leakage and bladder tenderness. It took 8 weeks to get in to see a specialist. He said after he did an ultrasound that my bladder is not emptying the way it should. His opinion was that my adhesions are growing back around the bladder. He has ordered a muscle / nerve response test to see how invasive the problem is. He said that he could prescribe deep muscle massage therapy that could help prevent growth of the adhesions and some medication to help with the bladder spasms.

In February I had a LAPEROSCOPY that removed a massive amount of adhesions. My Gyn said he had never seen them that bad. He has been around awhile and known as the best Gyn in the area. He had to stop this procedure because with the removal of the adhesions, I had a hole in the uterus and hemmoraged. In March when he did the TAH he removed a lot more and said he could not believe that I still had so much more to remove. He said it was so thick it was like rubber, very hard to cut.

I fear that I will never be rid of this affliction! The doctor said it was caused by surgery, but I had to have surgery to get rid of it. The urologist is concerned that if not taken care of soon, it will invade the bowel area. Has anyone else experienced this and did anyone have the deep muscle massage that he is talking about? I would like to know if it helped.

Bladder adhesions


I am sorry to hear that you are continuing to battle with adhesions. I know that they can be very painful, and when they are causing a lot of pain, they are causing discomfort. I have had adhesions, but not attached to the bladder. I also have not had them return. I do know that there are women on "The Road" that are dealing with this. Some women's doctors have used adhesion barriers to try and prevent the adhesions from returning. Intercede and Seprafilm are two that have been mentioned.

I also have some links for you, that I hope will be able to help!

Hopefully some of the women will be along soon!
