I've cancelled 2 appointments with the urogynecologist because I just don't want to go there! So I'm coming here instead to learn what, if any, bladder issues you have had following what my pcp refers to as "pelvic floor surgery". Here's mine: I have stress and sometimes urge incontinence, up many times during the night to pee, and often have discomfort AFTER urination. I do not think I have an infection - no blood, burning, etc. I was tested for infection about 6 months ago and all was well - which prompted the referral to urogynecology. I did not have radiation treatments for my endo cancer, only hysterectomy which was robotic LAVH.
Friday and Saturday were uncomfortable. The discomfort after urinating was pretty intense. Today I'm fine. The leak things seem pretty consistent with what lots of older women experience. I feel like this is entirely a functional (or dysfunctional) process either as part of ageing or the pelvic floor surgery. I simply don't want to take any medications nor have any surgery for what so far is primarily inconvenient. Wondering if anyone else experiences these issues and what, if anything, you've done about it.
