It's been over a year since I had my surgery for prolapsed bladder and everything had been going great up until a few weeks back. I had an acute UTI which took about 10 days to feel better, then had a colonoscopy that removed 13 polyps, that she said looked okay, will get results next week. Lately just been feeling heaviness in my lower back area and urination is not a whole lot for as much as drink. Not sure what to think of this! I do not see any sign of prolapse!! I can usually pretty much guess what's going on with my body, but this one has me baffled! I walk slower cause of discomfort, will make appointment with my doctor that did surgery next week and see if we can figure this out. Thank you for listening!

    Hello diann. Your symptoms are very confusing because they could be thought to be another prolapse however as you say there's no evidence of one thankfully. Urinating small amounts as you know is common with a urine infection and I'm wondering if the infection hasn't properly cleared up. When you say Pressure (in the title of your post) do you mean you are under pressure or are you feeling pressure when you try to pass urine?

      Pressure when walking but not laying down. I took another urine test at lab on Thursday so hopefully I will have results on Monday.

      Thank you and hopefully I'll find answers this week, cause not being able to move around like I'm used to is not good. I'll keep updated. Thanks again!

      Hi Diann,

      Curious of what the doctors says? I'm doing the same thing. My doctor says sling to tight? Suppose to go next month to have it loosen. Been putting it off,( because I really don't want too)

      My back and sides on left hand side, right under rib cage is what's hurting. Hard to describe it. Does feel better when laying down. It's a constant pain, but if I move certain ways, it becomes more sharp.

      I know I've been over doing it, picking up 1 year and 3 year olds. I'm 6 months post.

      Please let me know what you find out?

      Thanks, hope you feel better soon.
