Re: Bladder Neck incision (TUIP)

It sounds like your experience is similar to mine. However, after about 2 weeks my swelling finally started to go down and I was able to start peeing on my own. The problem was that it hurt a lot. I had my post op appointment a week ago and it was determined that I had a strep infection in my bladder. After antibiotics, pain is lessenning and peeing is feeling more natural. At my appt., the residual urine left in my bladder was 77cc's and the doc expects that to get better over the next two months. I think the recovery time takes much longer than what they originally tell you. I hope that helps.
