Yes: There are many causes for trigonitis. Surgery rarely treats any of them. Sometimes a surgery called cystoscopy is needed to look at the trigone and bladder to help determine the cause. Diet (avoiding caffeine and tomatoes,and carbonation), avoiding nicotine, and getting plenty of fluid intake are all helpful in controlling trigonitis.
