Bladder Problem after 1 and half years

Hey all,

I'm just curious if anyone has experienced bladder problems this far after their hyst.? I had no complication with my bladder during or after surgury. Now all of a sudden I will be just standing there and urine comes out of me. I have no control of it. It's not even like I feel like my bladder is full. I have no problems going to the bathroom otherwise.

During my surgury they "accidently" nicked an atery and I losed almost 6 units of blood. I have had many other problems, including finding out last summer with a ct scan that they forgot 1/2 the uterus, however, my bladder has never been a problem.

Has anyone else had this and what did you do?

Bladder Problem after 1 and half years

Hi Did you keep your ovaries? If not, what kind of HRT are you on? Do you have any other symptoms that might be classified as menopausal? Dry eyes maybe, or pain during sex?

I'm wondering if you're experiencing urethral atrophy. The urethra runs right along the vagina... and without sufficient estrogen, the tissues of the vagina and urethra can atrophy. This can lead to urinary incontinence.

In case this sounds like it might apply to you, here's a link to a discussion of vaginal dryness/atrophy and the solutions available:

The hormonal remedies work the best, and doing kegels regularly can help too. Here's a link to a description of how to do kegels properly:

I hope this helps... I also hope you'll make an appointment to see your DR and talk about this. Do let us know what you find out, OK?
