I could really do with some advice from others who have been through this, I don't know what to do any more. I had a laparascopy on Wednesday morning this week, they didn't find anything apart from saying I had a lot of bowel, which could be causing my IBS problems. After the surgery they told me to wee before they would discharge me. I kept trying and trying but nothing would come out. I drank loads but still nothing would come, I kept drinking and waiting, they even had to get the bladder scanner to see how much liquid I was holding, and they said not enough so I drank about 3 litres of water and after a few hours finally did a small wee and went home. When I got home I Couldnt stop feeling the urge to go to the loo, I was going every 5 to 10 mins. I phoned the hospital who advised to go to A and E but there was a 4 hour wait time and I was already so tired after the op, the nurse did a quick urine test which was fine but she said it may be too early to show an infection and I went home. It's now Friday and I'm not much better, still urinating every 20 mins or so. It's like I go and do a wee, it starts then a bit comes out for like 5 seconds then it trickles off, I go to sit and down and feel like I need to go again, and it's constant like this. I can't even relax and lie down and stretch my legs out because it feels like there's pressure on my bladder making it worse. I'm having to sit up or lie with my knees up. I went to my GP today, he did another urine test, but the results won't be in till next week, he gave me some antibiotics to try. Is this normal after laparascopy? I'm really worried that they may have damaged my bladder during the surgery, I'm so worried and scared.
