After some advice; hopefully someone can help.
I had a total hysterectomy for endo two weeks ago. As is the norm I had a catheter overnight and was warned about the potential for UTI.
I am almost sure I have one. Feel like I’m desperate for a wee all the time. With some exceptions I either can’t go at all or there is just a dribble. It can be really sore too - stabbing pains.
I’m feeling these pains on top of the post op painkillers I’m taking.
I had a spare specimen bottle at home so handed in a urine sample to my GP this morning. They said they’d test it and call if there were any issues. I haven’t heard from them which could mean one of two things:
1) they haven’t tested it. Which would be annoying and surprising as they are normally very good.
2) I don’t have a UTI but have all symptoms of it and am so uncomfortable.
I will call tomorrow for a GP appointment anyway but given lots of fobbing off re endo I’m worried they’ll say it’s in my head.
Has anybody else experienced this? Any idea what it could be?!
