I was healing so well after surgery my scheduled pull of my catheter was moved up from 9 days to 6 days Monday 10/10/11. Since the removal I noticed the urine stream to be less than before surgery. I had an ultrasound done which showed my bladder is emptying but it takes a little time to empty with a little burning. I was told the weaker stream was caused by still being early in post surgery which will eventually get better. During the day I noticed some leakage when getting up from the chair or out of bed which is to be expected while I work on the incontinence and kegels.
Has anyone esle experienced a weak stream after catheter removal?
How long after removal did the stream go back to being strong again?
What kind of recovering did you do, advil, motrin etc. to assist if there is any swelling remaining?
