I feel like my bladder is constantly full and I need to pee

Customer Question

I feel like my bladder is constantly full and I need to pee every 5 seconds. no pain and no infections, over the past few weeks I have a lump and a gapping hole just above my c section (9yrs) ago that wont stop bleeding or heal. the nurse said it is no longer infected but cld these things be related. I had a steroid injection in my spine about a month ago now

HelloSomething is obstructing your bladder outlet.It is not likely related to the hole, but you might have adhesions [scar tissue] from the c section.This could be affecting the bladder.I would ask for an MRI, which will show adhesions, and is probably the only scan that will.You need to see a wound specialist for a non healing hole, which is not normal. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
