Needs evaluation: 21 year old woman asking if bladder and urethral pain after a c-section is normal. The bladder is retracted during a cesarian section and the urethra is commonly instrumented as a foley catheter is passed. Thus pain may occur but can never be dismissed. Pain with urination indicates urethritis and suprapubic pain may be cystitis. DVT, PE, wound infection and UTIs after surg must be evaluated
