Bladder pain ?: At 56, and without oral hormone supplementation, post-hysterectomy prolapse (lack of support for the bladder dropping the bladder on abdominal strain) will cause what you describe. See your gyn provider for advice on estrogen supplementation, or even surgical repair of the prolapse if found.
