Bladder Issues After C Section
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
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
My gyno. Told me my bladder was stitched with the last C-section. Now I had my third child. .. And im worried will there be any future complications?
Probably not: The bladder heals very well in most instances, even when there are adhesions from previous surgery like cesarean section. Future problems are always a possibility but usually do not occur after bladder repair during cesarean surgery. The bladder frequently has to be "taken down" in order to reach the infant during csection delivery.
Likely not: There is likely no increased risk with the cystitis 3 weeks after the section.

Suffering interstitialcystitis past 1 yr. Now 37 weeks pregnant. I want to know the risks associated with vaginal delivery & c-section on my bladder?
Some risk: Interstitial cystitis symptoms are caused by the lack of a protective layer in the bladder.This lets irritants get to nerve endings. Delivery should not change this. There is always some risk of bladder damage with a c-section but interstitial cystitis doesn't change this nor does this change interstitial cystitis. The main risk to the bladder with vaginal delivery is to support. This also is the same

39 weeks pregnant. I want to know if catheter will be inserted in both c-section and in vaginal birth? I want to avoid it due to my bladder inflammation
Catheters in Birth: If you have a C-section you will have one to keep track of fluids and because you will not be able to get up until the anesthesia wears off. In a vaginal birth if you have an epidural you will have a catheter because you can't get up or feel when you need to go and a full bladder can prolong labor and interfere with some procedures. Otherwise you may have an in and out cath just prior to birth.
Question cut off: Please resubmit & include a clear and specific question.

I have an anterior placenta and need a C Section. Dr didn't mention this would be an issue but google listed major complications? Should I be concern?
Yes: You have unlimited negative right (ie the right to refuse any treatment.) if you are feeling the need to refuse a cesarean, make sure you understand why someone is recommending one. You may be refusing something that would be in your or your infants best interest. Many things can be done to reduce the likelihood of needing a cesarean, but some cesareans will be necessary despite all measures.See 1 more doctor answer
