I had a TURB done about 3 weeks ago and what I noticed was that I got bladder pain when I pushed it too hard physically. I am in great shape, work out all the time and am young (44), but I decided to work in the yard last weekend (real easy work - nothing heavy) and that was a big mistake. I think I lifted something I shouldnt because I went to bed that night normal and got up in the morning, went to the bathroom and I peed nothing but blood. Literally, notning but a full bladder of blood. I guess I tore out my scab or something and it just sat there bleeding all night. It got better later that day after alot of water and flushing it all out, but the point was that the bladder really hurting.
Not sure if this may be the case with you - but did you push your activity level too much too quickly after surgery? I didnt get the other symptoms that you got (maybe you got a bug?), but the bladder pain I absolutely got and it was due to me pushing the physical activity too fast. I have realized that this thing is really going to take a full momnth to 6 weeks to heal and I cannot push it or I suffer for it.
Good luck and I hope your doc gets you the help you need fast...
Thank you for the info. I did make it in to see the doc and it isn't a UTI, so they gave me more detrol and referred me back to the URO. Yeah I thought that the nausea may be unrelated but the diarrhea I have had since a few days after my surgery. Well, I suppose I will just have to wait for the URO unless it gets worse.
After a month, it could be the nausea and diarreah are unrelated to the TUR. The bladder pain sounds suspicious though so it would seem as though a uro should see you.
The good news is that the regular doctor is quite capable of giving you a urine test for UTI. A bad UTI can cause all of the symptoms. Even with Kaiser, you should be able to go in and give them a sample for testing without having to wait for an appointment. UTIs can be dangerous if left untreated for long so most docs will find a way to squeeze you in.
Alternatively, you may want to get yourself to an urgent care facility or the Kaiser ER so you don't have to wait through the weekend. If it's a UTI, you want to get on the antibiotics right away.
