Re: bladder problem after ALIF surgery?
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.
