feeling uncomfortable sensation after urinating

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am 2 months after big surgery ( resection of big part of colon, small part of small intestine and appendix) and I started feeling something weird and strange in my private part (I am a woman) after urination. Has anyone experienced anything like this/ discomfort within the urinary tract? I am planning to see my primary physician ASAP  but she cannot see me in a week from today.

    Dear Violeta

    I would suggest you have someone go to the drug store for you and buy Uniary Tract Test 

    strips. This way you will know if you have an infection or not. It will at least give you peace of mind if you’re clear. If not call your GP and tell her what you did. She will either get you in ASAP or call you in something. Sometime they want to do a culture but do this and see how you come out. I keep them all the time and use them for this very reason. 

    God bless!

      I am in the USA and I found them in Walgreens but one Walgreens didn’t have it and I found out from the web that another Walgreens near by has it.

      I did the test and it is not urinary infection for me.

      Thank you again for your idea in the test strips.

      Sorry, I was wrong. The test strip shows little pink for increased level of leukocytes and nothing for nitrite.

      I will do another test again in few hours.

    Hi Violeta. I have had a lot of problems with my bladder. When i had the resection there was inflammatory material stuck to it ( a phlegmon) because of infection. I have horrible problems with discomfort urinating ( burning etc) and sonetimes its all day, sometimes not. I sloke to surgeon, but i thought it was getting better, but its bad again. I will tell him when i see him on 23rd of this month. Its very unpleasant. Makes me feel sick, not a uti either. Sore back too.

    Dear Patricia,

    I want to thank you on your advice to buy the strips and check.

    The registered nurse did urine test and gave my antibiotics for the urinary infection.
