Bladder fused to uterus?

Can anyone answer this question for me? I think my bladder may be fused to my uterus. I don't drink anything after 5Pm and when I go to bed and lie down; it starts. As soon as I lie down either on my back or left side, I feel as if I have to run to the bathroom. It's like I've been holding it for a ong time and can't chold it anymore. As soon as I go and come back to bed; it's a matter of minutes and I get the feeling again and again and I get NO sleep at night. ANyone experiencing the same thing?

Help!! Scared - surgery coming up on May 19th.

It could be that your uterus is swollen and pushing on your bladder. Before my surgery I ALWAYS had to pee!..I was up all night it seemed like. After surgery with all the liquid they pumped into me, I still pee'd ALOT. But, after bout 2 wks I was able to hold it for longer periods of time. now it works like a new one! and theres NO pain anywhere!!!

Good Luck

I had that issue all the time before surgery. Your bladder is attached at the cervix. My problem was the fibroid was so large is was pushing on my bladder.

Don't worry many sisters have that same issue before surgery.

Good Luck!!

I have the same issue. My dr. told me that because my uterus is so enlarged it is pushing on both the bladder and rectum causing problems on both ends. I can't wait for the relief that the surgery is going to bring.

Good luck to you. :foryou

Bladder fused to uterus?

Hi Meme. I had a hugh fibroid that forced my bladder into half the space it would normally had. Before my surgery I had to urinate every 45 minutes, 90 minutes if I held it in - I kept running out of capacity ! And I always felt like I had to go - always. Post op I don't have any issue at all. I'm three months post op and sometimes I still get surprised that I can last up to 3 hours without needing to visit the bathroom.
All the best with your surgery !

Thank you for this helpful information. I actually visited a urologist two weeks ago because I was always going, going, going. I wanted to know if I had additional problems, along with the fibroids, that should be taken care of during surgery. I, too, will be so glad after surgery to get my life back to normal.......at least after I recover from this TAH/BSO, which will take time.
Love reading everyones hints and tips, really helpful.
Vist the castle in 8 days...........feeling scared, relieved, stressed and every other emotion possible.
Good luck to everyone waiting for their procedures!!

Bladder fused to uterus?

I had the same symtoms.....had TAH/BSO in Nov. During my surgery it was discovered my uterus was attached to my bladder via a fibroid outside the uterus...this was unexpected...it didn't even show up on a CAT scan...scary....they repaired the ext wall of the bladder, I came home with a Foley Catheter .....it was removed a week later...still have that occasional bladder urge..but nothing like it was.......

My prayers are with you...and wish you the best with your procedure!!!

Bladder fused to uterus?

During my TAH, it was discovered that my uterus and bladder were adhered to each other due to scar tissue from other surgeries. It took an additional hour to separate the two organs.

The fact that I had to go to the bathroom so many times per day finally made sense! I still seem to have some issues, but they are related to other things, not my TAH.

to you.
