Hi everyone. I had my laproscopy early Tuesday morning. I was told id be in and out. I had 2 large cysts removed and a small amount of old edometriosis was found which i think shows taking the pill back to back has worked. When I woke up I had a drain fitted through my tummy and a catheter inserted. I was taken to a ward and told I had to stay the night. I bled too much during the op and was advised I may need a transfusion. The next day my blood count was fine so no transfusion was needed. The drain and catheter were both removed. The problem I had was that I couldn't empty my bladder on my own. Throughout the day id go to the toilet and only a small amount would pass, they then would do a bladder scan and found my bladder was still holding over half the urine. Ive been sent home to wear a catheter for 2 days to gice my bladder time to 'wake up' . I just want to know if anyone else had the same problem or know of it? Im really worried that its done permanent damage to my bladder. Also did anyone have problems with bowel movement (sorry not a nice topic i know) just im abit worried about the pain in my tummy and i think its preventing me from going. Thanks for any info.
