Severe Bladder Failure

3 weeks ago I started to swell in the lower abdomen. The ER doctor said I had severe bladder failure, that my bladder was the size of a basketball. 4 days later, urologist did a cystoscopy and said it looked good. 1 week later, he did a bladder scan, again he says it looks good. I now have more pain and discomfort. I look like I'm 7 or 8 months pregnant. Had a complete hysterectomy so can't be pregnant. I've also been diagnosed years back with ibs (no actual testing to get this diagnosis), and also have lactose intolerance.  What else could be happening with me. I am at a loss and doctors don't seem to be doing anything. Please help me.

Thank you for your question. Could you go into a little more detail about the symptoms you had that prompted a visit to the emergency room. Has your condition changed recently?
