Urinary retention can occur after any vaginal surgery. This condition is usually self limiting providing a urethral procedure was not done at the time of your surgery. If you did have a urethral procedure like a mid urethral sling done, you should contact your doctor and follow their advice. J. Kyle Mathews, MD
