Does anyone experience urinary retention as a result of pelvic floor dysfuncton? I have a long history of UTIs, then last year I was told I have a tight pelvic floor muscle. I often have difficulty emptying my bladder, sometimes problems peeing at all. If I take a hot sitz bath, I can then empty my bladder. I don't want to have to do this for the rest of my life! I've tried PT and biofeedback, was successful there, but it doesn't seem to help when I'm trying to pee. Any input would be appreciated.

I have a severely scarred pelvic floor from a surgery that on review should never have been done at all, or most of the 7 procedures, should not have (plus I did not consent to 7) result my rectum is at 90 degrees on post-op defecogram, scarred area where sigmoid colon was, then had 7 months of small bowel obstructions from scarring there. Lucky SO FAR that adhesions off the small bowel and ileostomy saved my life. BUT have had some food blockages and have some muscle adhesion issue I think. BUT anyway, so far alive and able to eat and that is great! The original surgeons did bladder surgery, though I had no issue with my bladder. So they raised it too much, obviously, as it was not dropping. So I have this real crampy pain when I wake up and it is full. During the day I have to lean way forward to make pee come out, but lucky I can. Try leaning forward or other positions. Yours is likely not scarred as mine is but any pelvic floor issue can disrupt the angulation of any outlet. Good luck. Rosemary

Sounds like you've been through the ringer! Sometimes position change does help, but I am still hoping that I can FIX the problem. I'm trying thielle massabe, an internal pelvic muscle massage, and hopefully that will help. Thanks for your input.
