Can Constipation Cause Urinary Retention
Rarely: Severe stool impaction can cause urinary retention especially in chidren. A large hard bolus of stool can compress thethra ; even push up the bladder neck. Such patients usually need a manual stool disimpaction followed by vigorous enemas ; should consult with a gastroenterologist if they have not previously done so.See 1 more doctor answer

Did Flavoxate (200 mg) taken 3 time a day for week can cause chronic urinary retention in future? Thank You
Here are some...: Flavoxate suppresses bladder muscle contaractability. In general, it is good idea to be checked out to see what the potential underlying causes for irritative voiding symptoms may be - so making sure of no bladder outlet obstruction by poor sphincter relaxation, stone, or stricture along the urethra; flavoxate is not good for these conditions. So, be evaluated timely...
Been having urinary retention, had cystoscopy, Dr said there was some polyps in the ureathra, but were too small to cause the prob, are polyps normal?
Bladder or medicatio: Urinary retention in women is not common. I see you are on an antidepressant which sometimes can effect bladder contractility to cause retention. Maybe stopping this med if you can might help. Most common cause of urinary retention in a woman is bladder muscle weakness (hypotonic bladder) for which not much can be done and if retention occurs the treatment is intermittent self catherization.
Avoid tricyclics: The older cyclics with their stronger anticholinergic side effects tend to be more problematic in this regard while SSRIs are less likely to cause urinary retention. Medications should be based both on presenting psychiatric symptoms and medical considerations. Your personal physician, who knows your history, can best guide you in selecting a medication that is best for you. Best wishes.
Many reasons: It may be related to anesthesia, medications, or the type of surgery you had. If the surgery was done near the bladder, you are more likely to have this problem. However, it is mostly temporary and will resolve. Occasionally, medication is used to help with this. You may also need to use the cathether until the problem resolves, either by intermittent self-catheterization or indwelling cath.
Urinary retention: Some part of nervous system Sympathetic is suppress and parasympathetic become active. So imbalance of control develope
Retention: At your age have suggested it will not recur and will be of noconsequence
Since my tlh on 2/5 I have had urinary retention and have a Foley catheter in place. What is the typical cause for urinary retention after a tlh?
A few things: Anesthetic agents at first complicate urinating by effect on muscles involved. Pain meds can cause/contribute to it. Local irritation/inflammation can contribute. The pain post-procedure can keep you from wanting to push to go. Residual irritation from foley (if out) can. Positioning (esp if in bed/on sofa a lot) doesn't help. So many things play into it, and all (should) resolve over a few days.
