Bladder after lap!

Hi

I am 8 days after lap only diagnostic.

Since i had it done i have been ok , sore but ok.

I have been having trouble bladder wise, wee stings, bladder hurts, keep weeing myself but have no infection, been to dr.

I have been taking cystitis tablets and they have helped but is this all normal?

I have no endo that they found i have clotting problems so the bladder probs wouldnt b endo but is it normal to b in this much uncomfort 8 days after lap ?

I felt like that before the opp as well as needing to urinate frequently and getting a swollen tummy as day goes on. Bladder never feels empty and stings/pain when go.

They thought it was the 10 cm cyst pressing on my bladder, but 13 days post op to remove the cyst and its worse than before ! I am going to try the cystitis tablets and go to the doctors.

Hope it settles for you soon x

I have never had cystitis so i had no idea what was prob but i got the cystitis tablets and had a word with the pharmacist and she said laps can do this as they interfere with ur insides and bladders inflame.

I have been taking the sachets now for day and i can totally feel a difference my bladder feels less inflammed and i can wee without to much pain and i dont keep wetting meself

Lol!!

I had this for about 5 days after my first lap. Firstly drink lots of water. A pint an hour. It's possible to be something called interstitial cystitis that is associated with endo but not an infection

I found stopping using toiletries in that place, using sles free ones in general , taking antihistamines, using organic sanitary towels and wiping carefully front to back and manuka honey helped clear it

Thanks for the info Starry. It does feel like cystitis, but they keep telling me that it isn't. I hope I don't have internal cystitis too, but reading the articles it's sounding likely 🙄

I hate this bloody illness 😫

Hope your feeling stronger today x

Well, if it is, it's good that is not accompanied with pain as I've heard the first one after op can be really painful 😩

Omg it has calmed down so much, thanks you ! And my tummy is less swollen too, o thin that's because I can pee ok now. Hope yours is still calm x

Well to tell truth i have no idea what goin on with my body, cant make out if im just still bleeding and it getting heavier then mayb i should worry or it a period, i got a appointment with nurse monday to look at stitches so if i think it not period by then il ask her. Coz i usuallly take tranexamic acid when on but i dont know wether to take as i dont know if it a period. QUESTIONS QUESTIONS LOL!!

Glad to have been some help! I know how bloody painful that was... i took a extra sachet and it seems good.. if i feel abit of a sting come back il take another one but think ok. There great arent they? I was told to take by lady on endo uk facebook, there great help, u on there?

Reply

Yes, asking the nurse sounds the best thing to do, glad you have the appointment on Monday.

No, I don't do face book, but I may do it for things like the Endo group !

I'm going to get extra sachets too ! Thanks again. This place is a god sent x

Yeh well thats what i use the facebook site for, there was a lady on there that sent me pic of the cystitis stuff so they do give good advice plus they know there stuff with nhs and all that kind of stuff.

Il have word with nurse but have feeling it a mini period, i supose i been bleeding all time since lap so it only a mini one thankgod. I can feel some period pains but there not extreme YET!! But then ive been getting med down neck so hopefully will stop it...
