Bladder spasms still?

Since my surgery, I've had pain with urination. From everything I've read here, it sounded like bladder spasms. It has become alot less frequent in the last few weeks, but I'm wondering if at just under 6 weeks, is it normal to still feel that? It's alot less painful, but still there. I don't have any burning when I go, it just feels like a sharp pain in my bladder right when I'm finishing up. What do you think? Also, I usually only feel it when my bladder is really full.

Well, I'm at 11 weeks...

and I still sometimes get that...also get it with sex sometimes.

My doctor explained to me that they do a lot of bladder manipulation which really "p***es it off" so to speak The muscles can be pretty irritable for quite a while.

If it persists, I would ask for a urine culture, just to be sure. There are medications, too, if the spasms are troublesome. But if you notice them improving (albeit slowly) over time, well, they do go with the territory .

Good luck!

When I had my 6 wk check with my urologist, I was still having some occasional bladder spasms. He said that the healing could go on for a few months. I assume he also meant the spasms, although at 11wks today I am not having them.

Bladder spasms still?

I'm not sure if I'm having bladder spasms or not, but my bladder
doesn't seem to hold as much as before my surgery. I get very
uncomfortable especially in the morning before I get up. As soon
as I urinate I feel better. It almost feels like pressure. I didn't
have this before surgery like a lot of ladies, my uterus was enlarged but not to the extent as some. My Dr. had to call in
a urologist during my surgery because I had blood vessels wrapped around my ureters and needed help removing them.
Maybe they did something else that I don't know about. I don't
go in for my 6 week visit until 8 weeks. I need to start writing these things down so I can remember to tell the Dr.

I get that pressure feeling whenever I finish up also. This has been improving but I'm wondering if it is the bladder spasms that you all talk about. I just had a urine check done last week & it was ok. I go for my 6 week post-op check next week.

Bladder spasms still?

At almost 12 weeks I still have those pesky bladder spasms when I am working. I have a very physical job and it seems everytime I use the bathroom I have them. They had subsided a little before I returned to work so the physical activity must irritate too. I am off work again due to heart problems and they have subsided again. Otherwise a perfect recovery!
