Urinary Disorders

Bladder pressure since I had a colonoscopy

08/26/2008

Question:

I had a colonoscopy on Friday 8-15-08 where they found three polyps. Since then I am experiencing a bloating feeling and bladder pressure. I went and had a urnie test which was negative for infection. What could be causing the pressure and frequent urination?

Answer:

It is probably worthwhile to see your doctor to be sure that you are emptying the bladder and not retaining a significant residual urine in the bladder. Sometimes people may have difficulty emptying the bladder after the procedure. Checking the urine to be sure there is no infection was also appropriate.
