I am 7 weeks from my reversal surgery and I seem to have issues urinating at the same time as emptying the pouch. But then after that is done I can stand up and go just fine. Guess it's good to have this option! I know the reversal doesn't really have any work done down in that area but well I never really sat on the porcelain throne when I had the ileostomy so it could have been an issue from the pouch construction surgery and I wouldn't really know.
Could this be an issue with the pouch pressing into the bladder or something while sitting? Not really sure as I'm only 36 and never had issues previously. The urologist wanted to just prescribe medication but at this point don't really want to be taking medication unless absolutely necessary. Have a follow-up with the surgeon Friday so will bring it up but wanted to see if anyone else may have experienced this.
