Bladder pain after rectum removal: Seeking advice

Hey all, I had my Barbie butt months ago but I still notice that I have bladder pain/discomfort. Has anyone else experienced this, especially other men? What should I do?

Yes, Alex. It's hard to pee and it hurts a bit when I do.

Call your doctor and possibly a urologist. I had a tough time peeing after surgery. They put me on Flomax and it fixed it right away.

Thanks, Alex. I'm going to book with a urologist.

+ One on the Flomax. The radiation for rectal cancer did damage to my bladder, so urination is another thing to manage. Interesting that the radiation folks encouraged me to show up with a full bladder, when possible, to minimize damage, I guess.

Yep, come with a full bladder to minimize damage. Then, pee like a racehorse as soon as they get done zapping you.
