Not uncommon: Urinary retention after surgery is not that uncommon. It should be temporary (less than a week) and if not , it is not unreasonable to request a consult with a urologist.

Retention: Sometimes a person can't pee after surgery; this can just resolve soon after the procedure but if it doesn't then a uriologist gets called in.
