Anyone else had a UTI after a c-section?

My section was 6 weeks ago, no complications, quick recovery etc.

I have however in the last couple of days started to have some pain passing urine.

I'm not sure whether I need to call 111 or whether I can just hold out for the GP on Monday. DH is overseas with work and I'm not keen on hanging around at the out-of-hours with all three dc if I don't have to...

Never had a section.
But have 3 dc and preg with 4th.

I get lots and lots of uti due to kidney problems

I would try very hard to drink lots of water to flush it out. When I start to get symptoms Increase water intake and wait a day or 2.
If you start spiking temps or feel worse get checked

I did after the catheter was removed, but 6 weeks later is a bit of a stretch for that, maybe just a uti you might have got regardless op.

Hope you feel better soon 💐
