I had surgery last Monday to remove endometriosis. I was kept in for four nights due to severe urine retention, I was unable to pass anything at all.
I was discharged with a catheter and have to go back on the 28th to see if I’m able to pass urine, if I’m not the catheter has to be put back for a couple more weeks.
Has anyone else had this happen to them, I know it’s common after surgery but usually after a couple of days it seems settles down from what I’ve been reading. This doesn’t seem to be the case for me.
I’ve already caught a kidney infection which I’m assuming the catheter has played a part in.
Slightly concerned this is going to be a longer recovery than I had first anticipated.
