    Default difficulty urinating after catheter removal

    I had a sling put in to help with urinary incontinence one week ago. Could not urinate so they sent me home with a catheter, which was removed yesterday. I urinated yesterday but don't feel like it is all coming out. Doc said sit in warm baths and move around which I did, helped some but now I can tell my bladder is filling up. Anyone have any great ideas to help? I really don't want to get re-catheterized.

    Thanks,
    Terry[V]

    ps- sorry - not a great topic....but thought maybe some tapper could help

    What about organs in place? Are you tender in the bladder region?

    Ging - I would be afraid to do OIP yet. But maybe I will try lightly.

    See, I kinda wondered if that would be too much, after I even posted it. I think you need to call your doctor's office......still not able to go yet? Or are you able to go but still not able to feel it?

    Poor chica!

    Oh Terry, I hope that you can call your Drs office and see what they think that you should do if you are still having troubles this morning! HUGS!

    Catheters tend to paralyze the bladder muscle but it's only temporary. It will improve in a few days. IN the mean time just sit on the stool, relax, maybe run some water from the faucett while your their or turn the showe on. a lot of times just the sound of running water will make you go.

    I did some foot reflexology on my Dad in the hospital. It worked like a charm. I also mixed up a digestive blend of essential oils in a carrier. He was very shocked it worked so quickly.

    That foot reflexology works SOOOO well. At SH, Reed, the reflexologist, was working on my feet and touched the area that corresponds to the ovaries. I yelped!

    He says, oh honey, some problems there?

    Uh yeah. Very late, starting to get concerned, etc.

    He says, oh no worries, it'll be fine, Ging.

    That was on Friday. My period started Sunday.

    I didn't tell Reed about it, but boy was I happy and tickled silly.

    Thanks so much everyone!

    I am going (urinating) but I don't feel like I am empyting my bladder completely, I am just going a little bit. I really don't want to call the DRs because I am almost positive that they will put another catheter in and I do not want that. I am trying to just ride it out, I feel bloated but not too uncomfortable and not in pain. So I hope I am not hurting anything by just giving it time.

    Hmm, foot reflexology sounds interesting.

    Terry
