Ovarian surgery 10 days ago, and now haven’t peed since yesterday afternoon. Drinking normally.

Would you call the surgery ward, 111 or GP?

Surgery ward

Yes contact the ward you were on.

Surgical ward although they may well advise a&e. Acute retention is a medical emergency, you need catgeterising urgently. If you go to a and e they will see you very quickly.

How are you OP?

Ace, thanks.

I wasn’t sure if I was wasting their time and it was a GP thing - first time having surgery and so I’m not sure what is normal, and what to call about, esp as it’s over a week post surgery.

Agree with piehunter. a&e with urinary retention.

Thanks, I’ve just rung the ward I was on and they said someone will call me back to say if they want me to go there or the hospital with a&e. Thanks for the advice.

You'll likely come home with a catheter in situ for a while as I'd imagine your bladder is hugely stretched if it's been that long. Make sure you are given a leg bag, straps for leg bag and enough night bags. I've always been sent home after a couple of hours but take stuff in case you're kept in. Hope you're sorted soon

How did it go?

Caulkheadupnorf Tue 10-Oct-17 08:33:40

Spent the night on the ward on a catheter and then waiting to see the doctor this morning, who will likely send me home when I can wee normally here. Thanks :£

A&E job. It's quite common and they would not criticise you for going.
