Two weeks ago I had my c-section and have been having problems ever since it hurts to empty my bladder fully? So bad I'll have to stop once or twice before being done. I've tried increasing my water intake to maybe make it easier but nothing has helped.
Wondering if anyone else has had this problem after their sections? or if I should mention it to my OB? It's getting annoying
Mention it just in case better to be safe than sorry .. I left it thinking my poor bladder is probably just bruised but I started peeing pus and blood ... nice !! I'm fine now keflex sorted it right up but I could have caught it earlier xx
Mention it, it could be a UTI after the catheter but your bladder is moved around a lot during the surgery so it may be that things have been made sore in the reorganising of your insides when you were put back together.
I had exactly the same thing, to the point I had to grab the sink while urinating, and left it too long- to the point I couldn't walk any more and screamed every time I tried to move my leg and had to be carried in and out of bed. Eventually I got a fever and as it turned out, I had gotten a nasty UTI from the catheter.
Do get checked out, hon. Better be safe than sorry indeed.
