      Drink water. Lots of water. Remember what they give you in hospital, meds, filter out in your urine. That could very well be what you are experiencing. I have worked in the medical field, and the medications work through your kidneys and bladder. And they do smell. BUT if you are due for another post op apt, ask!! Better be safe then sorry. Until then, drink that water!!!!

    I did get a bladder infection after my laparoscopy hysterectomy. But that's because during surgery you are cathed. But 3 weeks out is a little far. I would do lots of water and straight cranberry juice. You could be getting a uti by coincidence or just getting all the meds out of you system. They all filter out by liver and kidneys.

    Hope this helps😌

      Good!! Cranberry juice is always great for uti's and just bladder health all around. If you don't get to dr and you start feeling like you have to irinate and can't or you burn, you can buy azo tablets. You can get them in just about any store in the female aisle. They will turn your urine dark orange. But it stops the burn and urge. It will stain your close so I would use a liner.

      Have a great weekend😉

      I was lucky and could stay home. So I took mine off the first week and just covered it if I needed to. If your 3 weeks out you should be pretty good to go. But it's all up to you doll. Go at YOUR pace. Don't let anyone rush you. But I would take it off as much as you can. The more moisture it has the longer it takes to heal.
