Hip replacement 17/12 discharge 19/12: had 6 catheters

Customer Question

Hip replacement 17/12 discharge 19/12: had 6 catheters (2in/out):last one taken out last Sat. and successful pee(200ml) after 2nd set of urge (very painful) Urges make me force the action. This Monday the urge follows with a small amount but if I lay down the flow is constant (up to 400ml) I have developed stomach pain and have not been able to poop other than pass air. I take hydromorphone 1mg and 1 tylonol 650 every 4 hrs for pain. my doctor is away till the 24th and cannot get a referral. Is this process just my bladder relearning the process? I think I have a problem and do need a urologist asap. Richard

How long have you been on the hydromorphone?

Are you on any other new medications such as over the counter medications?
