Urinary Retention after surgery

I had Surgery in Jan. 2011 and had a foley cath inserted for 2 days.  After removal have had problems urinating and had to straight cath for at least a month, then intermittently.  It is now July 2011 and still have problems emptying bladder, have to strain and push to empty bladder. What should my next step be, Urologolist?  

I have had this problem in the past also, had Hysterectomy due to Cervical Cancer in 1992 and had a foley cath in for 5 days and had to straight cath for quite a while after this.  Also was never able to completely empty bladder and had to strain.

Before the above surgeries and foley cath insertions I never experienced any bladder problems.  Is there any medication that would relax the bladder to encourage easier voiding?

Thanks
Joanne Warren
