    Post Surgery Problems with Urination

    I recently (a week ago tomorrow) had a cervical decompressive laminectomy. During the surgery I was told a catheter would be used, but removed immediately after surgery. I am finding that I have a constant urge to urinate, but it's difficult to actually urinate. There is a slight amount of voiding (a trickle actually) and then nothing, but then I still feel like I have to go. Sometimes if I push really hard I can produce more urine, but sometimes not. Also, it seems as tho my stomach is bloated. I'm drinking plenty of fluids including cranberry juice but the symptoms remain the same. Is this normal and will it improve with time? I have a post op appointment with the surgeon on 1/9/13 and other than the pain, which is improving and being treated with Percocet and Valium I think I'm doing well. Thank you for any input.

    Re: Post Surgery Problems with Urination

    Could be an anesthesia effect. After your surgery, did they keep you in the hospital until you were able to urinate freely? They are supposed to do that.

    One way or another, you should be calling the doc....
