I just have a bl and tt yesterday, and I have a hard time going to pee. I have the urge to go, but cannot pee right away, I have to wait for 5 to 10 minutes to go a little, but still have that urge to go more but couldn't. My ps said I might have swollen down there and also from the catherter. But he did cannot prescribe me any medicine for it. If it is too bad I have to go to the ER. I don't have insurance, I don't want to go the the ER either. Anybody know of anything that can help me empty my bladder? medicine? I really want to empty it out or else it so uncomfortable. My nurse told me to try uristat for people with urinary track infection, but my dh could not find it any walmart. He now try CVS or Wallgreen. I hope he find it or I will have to explode.
No I never did......I know I had to go pee before leaving the surgical room I was in......
You poor thing....I hope your husband finds that stuff the nurse said to try....I don't have insurence either...Is there a way if you must go to the ER to talk about a payment plan...I know they have to do it no matter what......Good luck.....I pay my hospital 50 buxs a month and that helps a ton....
Hope you get well soon and congrats on your surgery!!!!!

I was told at my pre-op that I had to go pee before they would release me, did they not do that for you?
If you are experiencing pain when urinating, it's possible that the catheter introduced a bacterial infection into your bladder (UTI). There are no over-the-counter remedies for a UTI, you have to take a course of antibiotics.
You got to empty completly. Do not wait too long. I understand the no insurance thing but you can do harm to your system. Try running the water in the sink next to you or run warm water over the area "down there". My PS did say that the bladder gets a little shy after anesthesia. I had a catheter for 24 hours after my surgery to try and avoid that.
FTT with lipo to flanks and back. AL with lipo. Feb.. 2009 Medial TL with lipo to inner/outer thighs. Lipo to upper/lower abs Oct. 2009 BA, silicone, under the muscle, 457 cc's Nov. 2009
I stayed overnight in the hospital and had a catheter, however, once they pulled the catheter out, I had to go pee on my own before I could leave. It was NOT easy and I had to try a few times before I actually went! So yes, seems to be normal for after the surgery.
I agree with jewelsjewelsjewels reguarding a UTI, if you don't have insurance try to go to any Walgreens or CVS that have those "take care clinics" they will only charge you $50 for the consult and any tests (very minimal $10-20) and the drugs. I have insurance and use them all the time because they are efficient and fast for small things and rutine tests.
WOAHHHHH!!!! AZO, URISTAT and that other pill will only mask a UTI making it difficult to diagnose. They will never cure it and can possibly make things worse, ei: bacteria travel the opposite way, kidney, blood stream etc. A trip to the ER is not the only place, try a freestanding community clinic, Pt first, planned parenthood, etc. Also Walmart, Target and many other places (grocery store pharmacies) have all sorts of discounts on antibiotics, especially right now, just gotta ask. Bactrim which is prescribed for UTI is available under the generic program at Walmart and Target for 4 bucks. One last thing, cranberry juice will NEVER cure a UTI or any other bacterial urinary type infection. Cranberry juice can only decrease the chances of GETTING a UTI in the first place. The acidity in the juice acts as a coating inside the bladder preventing bacteria from "sticking" to the inner walls of the bladder. Just my ER 2 cents.
Please don't self diagnose!! I did have trouble going for a few days after sx. I would have to sit and wait for a few minutes just to go a little bit. I would take your ps advice and if you find that you are drinking enough liquids and you are unable to pee at all....go to the ER. They will take care of you and then you can work out the billing.
