bladder problem after ALIF surgery?

Has anyone suffered pain in the bladder area after ALIF surgery? I have this pain and tenderness on the left of my bladder after having ALIF surgery. And it seems I have to force the rest of the urine out. I hate to call my doc and ask......but has anyone else had this problem? When the nurse removed the catheter after surgery, it hurt to urinate. I was thinking that was probably normal. Now this has come up and not real sure if its normal or not?

Re: bladder problem after ALIF surgery?

Hi~ I had surgery 6 weeks ago. I have some pain sometimes in my bladder area I guess. It doesn't last and its not too bad. I'm not even sure its my bladder.... But I do have that thing where I feel I have to force the rest of the urine out. I also had a little pain after they removed the cathader (sp?) but I did hear that was normal and it didn't last. I'm hoping this urine thing will get better also over time.

hi Vicki....

Thanks for the reply. Maybe it is normal. I am hoping so. If you and I both had same surgery, perhaps it is normal. Again, thanks for the reply and good luck on your recovery in every way....

Re: bladder problem after ALIF surgery?

Hi Lynn,
Yep, I had that, too. I had the catheter in for 8 full days, so I figured it was irritation from that, and plain old muscle weakness. It was very strange to have to force the urine out! I did Kegals and it got much better. Just tighten up the muscles down there, hold for 10 seconds, and release. Repeat 10 times 3 times a day. If it doesn't clear up, definitely mention it to your doctor.

Blessings,
Emily
