Re: Problems with urination 10 days after colon resection
I think this is quite common. A friend of ours recently had colon surgery and had exactly the same problem as your husband. Although his catheter is now out, he is still on Flomax. My husband had a more severe problem six years ago as his prostate was very large and the surgery just made it necessary to have a catheter in until such time as he could have surgery (TURP) on the prostate.
Don't forget, it takes awhile for the other organs in that area to get back to normal as they have all been "upset" by the surgery. I hope your husband continues to recover well.
