Bladder Issues After C Section
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

Several things: The Cesarean section itself should not involve the bladder or the rectum. However there may be a irritation of the bladder from possibly having a catheter at the time of the procedure. It is also possible to have developed a urinary tract infection. One reason for anal pain could be constipation from pain medication if one was taking Percocet or Vicodin or something similar. There are of course surgical complications that might account for the complaints. For that reason it is important to speak to your obstetrician so that a definitive diagnosis can be made. ...Read more
Not recommended: Controversy over vaginal birth after c-section has gone from one end of the spectrum (no) to the other (sometimes) .

Very, very rare: A true bowel obstruction is a mechanical blockage of the small intestine, usually due to scar tissue (adhesions) from prior surgery. An ileus is a functional obstruction of the intestine often due to inflammation within the abdominal cavity. While I have seen women with an ileus after c-sections, the only time I have seen a woman with an obstruction was associated with crohn's disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Incontinence: Spinal fusion surgery is often performed in the lumbosacral spine. The nerves that supply the bladder and the sphincter muscle at the base of the bladder travel through the lumbosacral spine. It is possible for there to be some transient effect on continence after fusion surgery. It is also possible for scar tissue called arachnoiditis to develop later around the s2 (racepinephrine) and s3 nerve roots also. ...Read more
Would uterine, cervical or ovarian cancer be noticed during a c section? C section 14 weeks ago. Bled after sex few times so am worried about cancer.
No: Cervical cancer/ovarian cancer would probably not be noted at the time of a c/section. However, most doctors do screen for cervical cancer (a pap-smear) near the beginning of pregnancy care. So if you had cervical cancer it would have been picked up on this pap-smear. Ovarian cancer is not common at age 34. I'd see your doc about the bleeding but think cancer risk is low. Best wishes! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Too soon : It's too soon to determine the need for a c section at 33 weeks. Your baby could still change its position over the next 5-6 weeks. If your baby remains transverse or becomes breech late in pregnancy, you will need a c section. However, it is simply too early to tell right now. Discuss this with your obgyn. Good luck! ...Read more
