Thanks to everyone for all the s and words of encouragement. My question now is, for those who had a cath, how long til the bladder feels back to normal?? It is still an effort to go (I gotta reeeeally push) , and there is no sensation of need to go, I just feel bloated and know my bladder must be full. Karin

I too have recently been diagnosed with cervical cancer and am awiating my surgery on Tuesday. I'm so happy to hear your lymph nodes were good!! I've been so terrified these last couple days, stories like yours help so very much.

I'm surrounded by friends and family who are so wonderful, yet I've never felt so alone in my life. This site helps.

Dear Karin.
I came home self cathing and then ended up having a foley put back in at one week post op. I had that for one full week and then was Finally able to go on my own!! I had my surgery on June 4 and am just recently getting the sensation back, for months it was just a pressure like you described. Now, I can tell that I have to go , pretty much back to normal!! It is getting better all of the time!!! Good luck!

right before my GYN/ONC removed the surpa cath, I had sensation of and on. After he removed it, it was just a pressure
feeling. Right now I am getting the sensation feeling back, slowly by surely. He did tell me it might take a few months for my bladder to go back to normal. He also said some women develop a "lazy bladder" meaning no sensation whatsoever, but try to go every 2-3hrs. Mine came out mid Oct so it is fairly early to expect my bladder to be like before.
Hope this helps.
