Retention. Usually resolves, but depends on surgery done...If just from pain meds this can resolve.
Very common. Specially after morphine and other opiate mediacations.
Opiod pain meds for 5 days and urinary retention. Stopped 2 days ago, still experiencing. How long takes for urinary retention to go away?
Usually on the order. Of hours to at most several days. If it has been more than two days, particularly if you only used 5 days worth of opioids prior, and you still have urination issues, then you should review this with your doctor. There may be something else going on, that you don't want to miss. Remember constipation can also contribute to poor bladder emptying too.
