Why am I experiencing frequent urination and bladder pressure following surgery?


Answer by  marlag619 (12)

Depending on what type of surgical procedure you had, a urinary catheter was possibly placed to keep your bladder empty during the procedure. Symptoms like frequent urination, pain with urination and pressure occasionally arise due to a Urinary Tract Infection. If your symptoms don't clear up within a few days please see your Dr.

It could depend on the type of surgery you had. Any surgery on your abdomen or groin area could cause swelling that may be putting pressure on your bladder. If you had a foley cathetre draining your urine while you had surgery you may aquired a urinary tract infection. You should discuss this with your doctor.

The answer to this question could be one of many things, it depends on what type of surgery and if you had a foley catheter placed. If you did have a foley for many days then you may need to retrain your bladder because a foley automatically drains the urine.

If you had a catheter, this is a common for about three days. If it has been longer or you have a fever, this is a UTI, call the doctor.


Answer by  tamarawilhite (17883)

One possibility is that it is a side effect of the medication you are being given for pain. However, if you had a catheter in place during surgery or while in the hospital, there is also the possibility that your symptoms are from a urinary tract infection caused by the catheter. See a doctor to verify.

If it is following abdominal surgery it could be due to the irritation of the bladder due to the injury or bleeding at the site or infection.

Urinary urgeny, frequency and bladder pressure are classic symptoms of a urinary tract infection. If you had a foley catheter during the surgery you are at high risk. You need to see you doctor to be evaluated, which is as simple as a urine specimen.

According to me your prostate gland might have swelled. You have not mentioned what kind of surgery you have undergone. People with enlarged prostate gland will feel to pass urine frequently. Presence of urine stone also creates such problems. Culture your urine by the advice of a Urologist.
