catheter out yesterday. Peeing very small amounts.

The catheter came out yesterday and I feel like the most I peed was in the doctors office. I am peeing about every hour now but in very small amounts. I have to sit there and then after a few minutes a little bit more comes out. I self cath last night and this morning and there was still more pee in there. Is this normal? Will I have to have the foley put back in? or does it just take a few days for more of the swelling to go down so I can pee more? I do have a call in to my OB to ask her.

I am really regretting this TVT sling if this is what I am going to look forward to from now on.

Hey Robyn

I remember when I divorced Mr. Foley Catheter, I seemed to have gone every hour as well. I think that it lasted for at least a week - if not 2.

I did notice that I could sleep all night and that is when I started trying to re-train my bladder. I would wait as long as I could stand it and the time got further and further apart. I don't know whether it will work for you or not.

I didn't have a self-cath so I can't speak to that part of it.

I just remember that pre-op, I would go to the bathroom before I went to work (6:00am) and again when I got home (6:00pm). So this was really annoying to me to go so often.

I am 11 weeks post-op today and I will tell you that it has gotten better. I had a follow-up with the Urologist this week and he said that I may never get my all-day bladder back.

Blessings on you ....

The cath can really irritate your urethra. I had quite a time peeing in any quantity for about 24 hours in the hospital after my cath was removed.

Make sure you're drinking plenty of fluids. Try running the water in the bathroom when you go in to sit (funny related store-well, funny in retrospect; I was not amused at the time): after my cath was removed in the hospital, I was having trouble peeing at all. I told the nurse (they watch for that, in case they have to re-catheterize), and she suggested running the water, closing my eyes and really trying to relax. So she turned the water on for me, I got as comfortable as possible, and closed my eyes, and just tried to relax. Well, finally I peed. But when I opened my eyes, the bathroom was flooding! Turns out there was a clog in the sink drain, and keeping the water running for so long had overflowed it! The clean towels and gown my nurse had brought me for after my shower-soaked. Water in the trash can by the sink. Water all over the vanity surrounding the sink! Lol. So I took a little walk down to the nurse's station (I was trying to walk as much as possible anyway), and told them what had happened. Fortunately, maintenance men were able to get in there pretty quickly and fix the problem. Then the nurse had to bring me clean towels, clean gown, etc.
