Incontinence following hysterectomy

hayleytaylorguile profile image

Hi, I'm 33 and had a total hysterectomy on 21st Nov 18. Unfortunately during surgery the surgeon caught my bladder and I had to have a catheter for 3 weeks whilst it healed.

For the first week since the catheter was removes my bladder was absolutely fine and normal. Now (since 30th Dec) I am unable to contain my wee. It leaks out of me continously and I'm not able to control it in anyway. Because of the Xmas/new year holidays I have been unable to see anyone and will see the GP tomorrow. I'm at my wits end and so upset (whilst also trying to get over the actual hysterectomy), I have been doing my pelvic floor exercise routine every hour during the day but nothing is helping.

Any advice or has anyone else been through the same. I would be grateful for any response.

How awful, that must be so distressing! Sorry no good advice here, just hoping the GP can get to the bottom of it tomorrow.

One thought — have you been told to do the pelvic floor exercises so frequently? Perhaps try easing up a little and scaling back to 3-4 times a day if it’s not helping anyway. But I don’t know if it’s possible to overdo pelvic exercises or not.

Thinking of you and best wishes x
