What happens if a bladder is cut during a hysterectomy?

The uterus and the bladder are anatomically close to one another, which means it is possible for the surgeon to accidentally cut or tear the bladder as the uterus is removed.
This can cause several problems, including:
• infection
• blood in urine
• vaginal bleeding
• urine leaking from the vagina
• incontinence
• a need to urinate frequently
