    Bladder issue
    Find out if there is a pelvic floor disorder clinic near you. A complication of hysterectomy can be issues with bladder. I am not sure where you live but I would ask for a referral to a pelvic floor disorder clinic. They can do sophicticated testing and then determine what treatments ( including complementary or alternative medicine- like accupuncture, biofeed back etc.) It isn't normal not to be able to urinate normally. Most of us could urinate normally after our urinary catheters were removed. I know that there is a hospital in Minnesota-Abbott Northwestern which has a women's pelvic floor disorder clinic. Self catheterization is not the answer...that is just a stop gap and you need to find the root cause of why your ability to void has been compromised.
