I am 32 years old and I had a radical hysterectomy (kept my ovaries) in November of 2001 and I have been cancer free for almost a year and a half. I was told that I would have to use a catheter for about two weeks after my surgery until my bladder started functioning again after it had been tacked. Well, it has been almost a year and a half and my bladder still does dont work properly. I have no feeling in my bladder (yes, thats right I cant feel when it is time to go). I have been to specialists and they tell me that it is nerve damage and that it may take up to two years for it to work or it may never work. Has anyone else had this problem and if so what did you do?
