Suggestions needed if possible

Sep 17, 2016 11:44 AM

Well, I thought today would be a good day, but not the case. Woke up this morning early in pain. At first I thought it's just post-surgical pain. However, as the day goes on, I'm lead to believe this might be bladder spasms due to the fact that I was catheterized yesterday for surgery. I just need suggestions to get through this weekend. I promise I'll call my surgeon on Monday if no better. Just really uncomfortable right now, and I can't seem to stay out of the restroom already. Been going every 45 minutes-1 hour already.

I had problems with my bladder too after surgery a nurse told me go in the shower or bathtub and try relaxing in the heat. It did help a lot .

Julia, back to the docs office tomorrow. Can't stand it anymore. Hoping this is just a UTI and nothing more then that.

Ooh, I'm so sorry! Take it easy and try gentle rubbing back and forth over the low pelvis if you can. Hugs love and prayers being said for you! 🙂💕🙏🌸

Flappys, I have tried that but due to swelly belly at the moment, determining where the pain is coming from is a bit of a challenge. Thank you for the love, hugs and prayers though. Much appreciated. But there is a bright side to this as well. Got taken off artificial hormones 4 days ago, and no bleeding. I know it's early still but that alone makes all this so worth it.

That good on the hormones. I'm going through menopause again because of the hormones the GYN doc had me on that i stopped. I'm freezing my hubby with the AC! Lol

Flappys, actually got taken off hormones Friday and I just feel weepy for no reason at all. Going to see if it's just me or what next Thursday. And yes, I completely understand about the AC. Lol
