Hi, I'm not sure as to what causes this but I go into urinary retention after a general aneasthetic. Usually I have an indwelling catheter in for about a week and than I used to go to intermittant catheterization. I have a neurogenic bladder which might play a role in my case.

Urinary retention after 30 days seems abnormal, perhaps you need to consult with your doctor.

All the best.
