Three weeks ago my GYN doctor preformed a hysterectomy while he fixed my prolapsed uterine wall (I can't remember the name of procedure for it right now). Before he has done the surgery, he had me going to a urologist to see if I needed a sling for my bladder. I never had much of incontinence, but just occasional "sneezing leak". Urologist said I needed a sling. The Gynecological part of my surgery went extremely well, I feel strong, and have no previous problem of feeling heavy as before. I also had virtually no bleeding, and doctor said It was a compleetly succesful operation. But I am having problem with urinating right now, specially when I get up in the night. I have to walk around few minutes in order to be able to urinate, and even then it comes in waves of few trickles. My urinating is painful. I have also noticed that my right side of abdomen is bigger is raised up, comparing to the left side, and it's hard. And in the lower abdomen, on right side, there is constant tension, especially when I sit down, or want to bend over even a little. I am afraid that my problem will not go away, and that I traded one problem for another. My GYN doctor said about 10 days ago that things will improve in time. But I am not so sure. If I had assurance that they will, fine, but I suspect that things are not looking the way they should. I don't understand wht is happening, and my urologist is has not explained anything to me. What are my options?
