Pocketman, don't you know you should listen to your wife, in the end they are almost always right. The urge you feel could be mild bladder spasms plus you now have a new female style urinary system. You may know this already, they removed your internal sphincter (which females don't have) and this sphincter holds urine in the bladder till the bladder feels somewhat full (you don't feel this) and this internal sphincter, which you have not conscious control of, begins to open allowing the pressure in the bladder to be felt by you external sphincter, the one you still have, giving you the urge to urinate. In the operation they connected the bladder neck directly to your external sphincter.
So there is a lot different, the foley can cause bladder spasms, no more man sphincter, bladder connected to the unisex sphincter, plus gods knows what is different now. So relax and get in touch with your new femine plumbing, as others and your wife said "this too will pass". I hope that ,other than the urge problem, you are feeling well.
