Hello ladies this is DiAnn and I'm 2 weeks post- op from surgery of a prolapsed bladder and removal of uterus. Today was my first appointment and I was so excited because I've been feeling so much better and doing everything that I was instructed to do and looking forward to a good report. I have a wonderful,kind,educated Urogynecologist and I'm very pleased with. The report was that everything is healing very well inside me with the one exception that my bladder is not emptying completely. I've been keeping a voiding chart and I've been going everything hour to half now for past week at 75 to 100, when I should be voiding 300. Today in the office I went and voided bladder before he saw me and 15 minutes later he cathetered me and I emptied 300 more. So for the next 2 weeks I have to self catherate to empty and retrain the bladder.They instructed me how to do it but I'm still a little scared that I will not be able to do it. Has anyone self catherated? I need some reassurance!! Thank you!!!
