Ok, so I had to have an ultrasound done for my yearly exam today. The ultrasound tech tells me that my bladder was full and that I needed to go to the bathroom. I didn't really need to go, but she said it was really full and would complicate the procedure. I went and I did go a little bit but not alot considering I didn't really need to go. So I get back to the room and she starts again and says, "you didn't empty your bladder". At this point I was thinking "ok, what the heck is going on?" All of a sudden I though "ah, its the j-pouch" so I proceeded to tell her about it. She had no idea what it was. She said it was just the same shape and size as my bladder and where my bladder would be located. She also kept talking about it being full of liquid. I'm kinda freaked by the experience because I don't feel like I need to empty the pouch. I still have the temp loop ileo as well. Is it normal to be full of fluid and not have to go? All that being said, should I be worried or concerned about any of this? Eeekkk!!!!
