I have been having problems with urine retention for the past 6 months or so. I am a 45 yr old woman. I had a very lg fibrioid and a condition called adenymyosis. I had a laproscopic hysterectomy on Tuesday (3 days ago). Urinating has been excrutiating because I have to push so hard to get the urine flow started, and the restarted, and then restarted! It talkes a good 5 minutes of start and stop to, hopefully, empty my bladder. My OB/GYN prescribed Flomax yesterday. I have only taken it once so far. I can't find any info on when I should feel any relief if this is going to help. Anyone have ideas??
