I am do glad to have found this community!!
Pelvic Organ Prolapse, The Silent Epidemic
Is your surgeon a Urogynecologist?
I wish you well with you surgery. Remember to ask to see a womens physiotherapist when you are healed to help you to strengthen
Thank you for your reply. I had my surgery on March 21.
I am. Having. Problems with urine retention now.
I had a catheter for 7 days after surgery they removed it was off cath for 3 days and could not void more than 2 ozs at a time. Wound up in ER and came home with cath for 4 more days. Have appointment with dr in few hours going to try to remove cath again and teach me self cath. I hopen this is not how I will urinate for the rest of my life! Discouraged!!
Make sure you ask your surgeon exactly why this is happening and get them to give you some idea of time as to when you will be able to urinate without a catheter.
Do they feel you need any adjustment to your operation? If so then ask them why etc., I can understand why you feel discouraged. Keep on top of this with your surgeon and ask for a urine test if you feel you have a possible infection.
Let us know how you get on
