How to stimulate a sluggish bladder after back surgery. Had no problem in hospital but now either cannot begin to void or stop halfway through the flow. Surgery four days ago. Have tried the running water trick which helps sometimes.
As long as you are going it is a good sign. The function of your bladder will come back slowly. Try pure cranberry juice, blueberry juice, or homeopathic juniper. All these help the bladder to clear out. Drink lots of water. Don;t worry because as long as you are going that is half the battle. You are not emptying your bladder completely because it is lazy and still anesthetized. Try Kegel exercises. Muscle contractions in the pelvic floor. Good luck.
