I had a bladder surgery over a year ago. Basically I had a bladder sling put in b/c of stress incontinence. Everything has been great. The doc warned me that pushing hard to pee would cut flow of urine off. Which I did notice if I tried to pee quickly, etc. Typically I haven't had any problems since the surgery and love it.
Today however, I feel like I have to pee...I go to pee and I feel like only a little comes out and it stops. I can tell there is still some there to be let out, but it's not coming. I get up and within minutes I try to go again b/c I feel like its RIGHT there. Again the same thing happens...and I feel the same way.
I dont have burning. I do to a degree b/c i think the urine is right there. Its the same way it feels if I push too hard and the urine won't come out. I dont think those times I had an infection or anything. There are no other things to mention that are causing problems or pain. I am under some stress lately, but not sure if that would cause this!
Just wanted to leave a little note. I had a hysterectomy (total) and also had a bladder sling or lift.
My bladder does not feel like it is emptying all the way, when I go. And also, sometimes it hurts - sort of on each side - like in my pee tubes.
I would like to go to a urologist, but not the one that did my operation. I do not like his doctoring style (the way he talks and such).
He said that my bladder is in a different shape and may be smaller. I try to hold it longer when I am at home and sometimes I do not quite make it in time. But, when I am out in the public, I just go a lot.
Take care and let me know if you find anything out. I cannot go to a new dr. at the moment, but maybe in October???!!
Hi, I had a similar problem, I have intercystial cystitis or however you spell that, but also my bladder didn't empy and I had to cath several times a day and was always in pain. I had tried just about every medication and exercise and surgery. I had 4 surgeries on my bladder. then I was lucky to be refered to a specilist that does interm therapy (there are very few doctors that do it and its hard to get into). I was lucky it was only a 3 hr drive. I have had it since april and it is the best thing that anyone could have ever done!! I would recomend it in a heartbeat to anyone, and I really believe it would help you. They implant a tiny box in your lower back and 4 electrodes that are controled by the box send impluses to the bladder. I am able to control it by a box that i have . before i had this i was getting stones all the time and in so much pain because my bladder wasn't empying. good luck. If you are interested let me know and i would be happy to talk to you about it.
