What causes scar tissues in the bladder?
User rating for this question
I recently had a hysterectomy and during the procedure the doctor ended up putting his finger through my bladder. he told me that my bladder had a lot of scar tissue that would indicate multiple c sections. I have never had a c section. is that something I should be concerned about and what would be a reason for it. plus, since the catheter has been removed, I have blood in my urine.

Brief Answer: Operative complication Detailed Answer: Hi, I read your query and I understand your concerns. Following is my reply: 1) It is not only a C section but any history of previous surgery or infection would have led to adhesions in your abdomen between different organs making it difficult to do hysterectomy. 2) While performing this surgery the doctor might have accidentally injured your bladder which he seems to have repaired and put the catheter for few days. 3) If catheter is removed in past 2 days and you have been seeing blood in urine dont worry. 4) If catheter is removed more than 2 days back and you are seeing blood while passing urine please see your doctor as it is a matter of concern. Let me know if you have anymore questions. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol
