Hey Crewe, know that problem too well.
If the burning continues, ask your doctor for pyridium, really helps. I have had slow flow from the day of my surgery last Novemeber, and the root cause of my other lingering problems. Hopefully yours will pick up in a day or two. Real important: don't de-hydrate yourself, its tempting not to drink as much water, etc. thinking it will be easier to control your bladder. Drinks lots and lots of water by day. Avoid caffine, soda, and achlahol as much as possible during this phase. And walk as much as you can.
