I've been dealing with bladder issues myself and they can drive you absolutely crazy. And male urologists don't seem to understand bladder infection pain, short term or long, and that it is bad. I've been retaining urine and not going and have trigonitis, though my bladder is normal but for polyps, which they refuse to remove no matter how bad they hurt. I get up and go frequently and not much at all. I am sorry to hear about your surgery and have nothing but good wishes and hugs and prayers for the relief of your problem because I total understand pelvic pain. I understand about forgetting about it and being tired of "being sick", not to worry. I hope they can get you to a competent surgeon and get your issue straightened out once and for all. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers and hope you get through the holidays as you wish and painfree.
