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.
