I had my fallopian tubes removed a week ago. Now I'm having a difficult time peeing. The pressure hurts, but only when I pee, I have no issues with bowel movements. I also can't empty my bladder completely and always feel like I need to go again right after leaving the bathroom. I forgot to ask my doctor about this at my appointment today, so I was just wondering if this is normal.

That sounds like a UTI. Call the Dr and explain the issue to the nurse.

Call your doctor to ask. I can say that after I had surgery for endometriosis that I had a lot of "mixed signals" in that area - felt like I had to pee when I didn't, didn't feel fully empty, etc. My doc told me that in my surgery it's normal because they are moving things around in that area and it can take the body a few days to recover from the sensitivity. I would imagine that the same is true with a more traumatic surgery like yours. However, check with the doctor!

You either have so much swelling that your bladder can't send the right signals or you have a utility which is common after surgery and having lots of pain. Which I recall you did.
Drink drink drink drink drink. Lots and lots of water. Get some azo or pyridium it's it in the states. Lots of cranberry juice. You do need an antibiotic though that is sulfa based. Kflex, biaxin etc. They may be it where you are.

I didn't experience this and I had that surgery years ago. Sounds like a bladder infection.
