Urinary difficulties?

Surgery was a week ago - 58 years oldl; prolapse; bladder repair, cystocmy, rectal and vaginal repair vaginal hysterectomy including the removal of ovaries (family history of ovarian cancer)
Biggest problem is urinating..........catheter needed to be reinserted at hospital and removed a couple of days later But, frequent urination and difficult to void in the evening........no infection. I am drinking plenty of water yet the urinary issue is frustrating. Anyone else have urinary difficulties? That is my real issue.

Re: Urinary difficulties?

My bladder had a lot of trouble at the beginning of healing. My doctor explained to me that it was pulled to the side for the operation & it would be mad for a while. I never had a UTI but I sure felt like I did. I got the over the counter Urinary Track pain medication. It turns your pee orange but it helped with the pain. I drank a lot of cranberry juice. All I can tell you is hang in there & give it time to heal. I remember thinking it would never be normal again but into the 4th week it really got better. The bladder & the gas pains where my only problems. Best wishes!

Re: Urinary difficulties?

Thank you so much. It seems logical that the area was quite traumatized.

Yep, the poor bladder goes through a lot. It seems like it is taking forever to heal but it does get a little better each day.

I didn't have as much done as you. Only LAVH and my bladder gave me alot of trouble too. The nurse said it was due to all the trauma and swelling around the bladders nerves. It makes since

On Wednesday, my urinalysis result showed no infection. But, as the week progressed symptoms degraded (frequent urination, difficult to urinate especially at night). On Saturday evening after drinking 6 bottles of water (through the course of the day) with painful, burning urination, I went to the ER. An infection was evident. I am now on Cipro and hope the symptoms diminish quickly. I will be receiving a shot today to jumpstart the situation. One of the reasons for the surgery was a prolapsed bladder with frequent urination and infections (also history of ovarian cancer in family). Little voiding and frequency with difficulty doing so is my only issue. I feel great otherwise.
