2 weeks after a vaginal hysterectomy and sling procedure, I have no "normal "sensation in my bladder. Only a sense of fullness after several hours. I have been self cathing from the moment I left the hospital. Should I be worried??
I kinda thoughtI had this too after my hysterectomy it took a while to realise what I was feeling was normal I had become so used to the weight of my oversized uterus pushing on my bladder and having to pee so often i thought that was normal, why are you still using a foley your going to become dependant upon it, try weaning (with doctors approval) your self off the cath, the cath alone makes it difficult for mist women to feel like they are having normal urination sensations for 24-38 hrs. good luck hope this helped a bit.
