Help! Leaking urine
I had a total hysterectomy - abdominally - three weeks ago. Yesterday I started leaking urine. I'm going through pads like crazy. I actually have a follow-up appt. with my gyn today, so I'll ask her about it. Does anyone know what this could be? Will it go away?

Re: Help! Leaking urine
It could be from trauma to nerves that serve the bladder. All kinds of nerves are damaged during a hysterectomy. They usually heal over time. I would say within a month or two.

I had a little bit of leakage for about 6 weeks post op.
