Almost 6 weeks


Almost at 6 weeks post-op. Still get severe abdominal pains before a BM but not every day now and not as bad as first week post-op

I can only wee easily if I sit forwards with my elbows on my knees. If I sit up any straighter I barely trickle.

If I remotely run I leak urine - even if I have literally only just been to the loo. I never had this problem before the op.

On the plus side - apart from day 1 and 2 when I was plagued with sickness and nausea - I have felt really well. This has been just as well as I have a daughter with severe anorexia and since I have been home from hospital we have a medical team turn up here 3 times to detain her forcibly in hospital - she managed to persuade them that she was fine the first two times. The third time she agreed to go voluntarily. Also been to hospital with her as an emergency as her blood glucose was so low that she was in danger of falling into a coma. She had 6 days in an eating disorder unit - which meant visiting trips backwards and forwards everyday. Unfortunately she discharged herself and we are back to dealing with the issue at home.

I feel much for spending even a few days after op with my feet up and watching DVDs. It has been full on.

Any thoughts about the BM pain or the leaking urine?

Re: Almost 6 weeks

I was leaking urine about week 4. My doctor told me to start kegels....25 a day. After one week, the leaky urine went away!! Try them and see if it helps!
