Problems with Urine retention after Colonoscopy
Had the colonoscopy procedure, after completion and removal of 2 non cancerous polypos, I noted I felt bloated, etc. After about a week of this bloat, I was unable to pass urine and had the foley catheter. One week later, the catheter was removed, and I had the void test, could not pass urine. Is there any connection between colonoscopy and urine retention? Prior to Colon test, I had no trouble passing urine…Ideas?

I had no problems like that. Had endoscopy/colonoscopy together. Don't forget that anesthesia can give problems. Bodies can react to anesthesia. Constipation, dehydration, inflammation. I would definitely talk to your doctor. Good luck and be well.
Thank you, another doctor visit next week. Getting depressed….
@cent66, Sorry you are having to go through this following your colonoscopy. My last colonoscopy was pretty miserable but I didn't have urine retention. My issue was a bilateral inguinal hernia and constipation. I hope you get some answers at your next appointment.
Here's some information that sounds like it's close to what you describe.

Thank you….I'll check it out….very helpful !!
Having urine leakage constantly after prostate operation many years ago.
@cent66, I wanted to check to see if the urine retention issues resolved. How are you doing?
@robtjsr, Duke. Is the urine leakage an ongoing issue? Was the operation for prostate cancer or PBH or something else?
Still having the retention issue…Doctor has a CYSTOSCOPY for the 29th of June. I have had the Foley, in and out for nearly a year now….very frustrating.
