Bladder pressure since I had a colonoscopy
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?
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.
