What causes...???

Hello

Question:

I've noticed that lately the strength flow of my urine is less than normal. When I have a full bladder, or what appears to be full to me, when I go it doesn't seem as strong as it once was....Just curious?????? (P.S. - Does this question make sense???)

Plus, after that it will ache and ache....like period cramps.

Oh...I can hardly wait until Thursday!

Thanks,
Lori

Bladder Blues

Hi,
I don't really know why that happens, except that maybe it is all part of readjusting. Perhaps you will have more insight on Thursday. Is the ache a spasm? I don't even know the difference totally. All I know is bladder problems are just plain awful and I'm writing to offer you hugs and support. I hope you find the healing you deserve soon!
Love, Light, Blessings

{{{{{ Hi Druid... }}}}}



I just happened to be online when your message came through...Thanks!


I guess the achey feeling could be bladder spasms....it does feel like period cramps...which are a spasm. I take Detrol LA and have for several months now...this is sort of a new thing, this really achey feeling after I empty. No, bladder problems are not fun - I'm sure you know that too. I have my pre-op on Monday so I'll ask my about it then.

Yes, I'm very anxious to have this done and see what's going on. I've been waiting a long time and have been in pain for way too long. It's hopefully almost over. I just keep thinking "This time next week..." thoughts and that makes me feel a bit better.

This urinating thing has me puzzled. I'm probably thinking way too much about it, but I'm wondering if perhaps those pesky adhesions are pulling and tugging on my bladder

I hope you're healing well and feeling a bit better now too. s

What causes...???

Lori, I have been having the same thing off and on....I just assumed it was all a part of that wonderful thing we call interstitial cystitis! I don't know if it is part of IC or not, but I have noticed the same thing happening to me

What causes...???

Lori,

For the first time in my life I've also recently experienced this bladder aching after urinating. I put up with about two weeks of it. Plus more frequent than usual urination, altho frequency has been a life long "thing" with me.

My bladder would ache and feel full, I would urinate with not much volume, and then the bladder would ache as much or more after urinating.

Finally it got to the point Super Bowl Sunday that things would start with the bladder ache, then discomfort gradually moved up the entire abdominal area, maybe a pang or two in the flank on one side or the other or both and dull aches in the back lower ribs one or both sides. And CHILLS. Gads, I was cold!

I ended up in ER where they thought I had a UTI but the culture was negative. Blood work was also pretty much negative (they thought the infection might have spread to my blood stream).

My GP has referred me to a uro and so far the IVP was normal. Cystosocopy on the 20th of Mar so I have no results or answers for you. Just thought I would share.

We're all pulling for you and wish you good luck and God bless. Hopefully relief will soon be here for you!!! Here's to the good life when this is all over for you!!!

(((Lori))),
Good Luck on Thurs I was thinking the same as pasdechat on it being caused by your IC I have noticed a similiar problem when I try to urinate, it sometimes take forever to get the flow started & the strength of getting it out has decreased a lot for me as well...hopefully, your Dr will be able to get to the bottom of this & your pain as well & have you feeling better soon
(((hugs)))

Wondering....

.....if the strange feeling I've had inside the vagina has anything to do with the bladder. When I bend, or squat it feels like something inside is trying push outside....not really hard, but like a bubble on the old style bike tire tubes...it's really an odd feeling. Kind of like what a bubble would feel like if were going to pop!

Any ideas??????

Another good question for my doctor.

Thanks Sheri...

You are a true wealth of information! I really appreciate it...Thank you for sharing your research

It happened again this morning in the shower...bending over to wash my feet...it's a really odd sensation. Not painful...just a sensation.

I will talk to the GYN about it this morning...I am hoping she won't postpone this weeks scope in order for me to get a uro consult, but if she does, so be it. It would only be in my best interest.

Thanks again....'s

Lori
