In brief: Now

Urinary retention is common problem some times after a procedure , mostly due to medication effect , bladder function will come back .
If it is 8 hrs or so go to ER will catheterize you and send you back home , effects of medication will wear off soon. In men prostatic obstruction is a different problem.
