I had an ecoli UTI now a painful swollen urethra & burning, but normal urinalysis, is it ok to do have a cystoscopy if I feel im very swollen?
Why a cystroscopy: What indications for cystoscopy? Have you had recurrent utis or other bladder related problems. Might you have a yeast infection or an std? Have you had a urine culture done since completing treatment for uti? Am sceptical about need for cysto in a healthy 27-y-o. If really needed, wait till any swelling has settled down & urine culture is negative. (staph or strep utis can occur with normal ua). ...Read more
Cystoscopy showed minor irritation. No uti. Could this be from a kidney stone I passed about 8wks ago? What could cause irritation in my bladder?
I have a UTI since last November. I have been on 4 anti biotics and also had a Cystoscopy (nothing was picked up). I still have blood in my urine& I have been put on antibiotics again. Now my back is painful and has a burning sensation. Any ideas?
Needs review: To have this kind of trouble means you need specialist care. Some people have many UTIs related to structural factors, (fortunately your cystoscopy looked normal), hydration status (it's important to drink, drink, drink), hygiene issues (important to pee after sex for example), bacterial or other host factors. Hopefully you can see an Infectious Diseases specialist who may be able to help. ...Read more
Dealing with a UTI for the past 7 months. Leukocytes, protein, blood and sometimes bilirubin. What could this mean? Cystoscopy, ultrasound was normal.
See answer: Very important to know that you have had at least several positive urine cultures (not just urinalyses) that have documented recurrent utis as there are other bladder conditions that can mimic utis (e.g. Interstitial cystitis). If you truly having recurrent utis and cysto/renal us normal, then treatment of choice would be to place you on a daily antibiotic for 3-6 months for prophylaxis. ...Read more
Male, 48, occasionally have white stringy floaters in urine. Had recurring utis (2), fully resolved after 3 weeks cipro (ciprofloxacin). Had normal cystoscopy. Ideas?
? mucus: This may be mucus coming from somewhere in the genital-urinary tract. The cystoscopy showed a normal urinary bladder. For the sake of completeness perhaps a urine cytology exam and a kidney ultrasound can be done. Discuss this with your urologist to see if he/she agrees. I assume the scrotum, epididymus, and testicles have checked out ok. ...Read more
If a cystoscopy clear, can you still have a fistula. Have spc and ileostomy, no large colon. Constant uti's. Nerve damage to bladder.

Frequent urge to urinate for months, small amounts 25+times a day, no incontinence, no UTI, no IC, cystoscopy ok, seen 4 urologists, very tired. Please help!
Could incontinence: I don't think it's easy to say that you don't have IC. The symptoms you are describing could either be IC, it could be urge incontinence, it could be a prolapse of the bladder or other pelvic floor dysfunction. You could have issues with bowels pressing on the bladder. What medicine have you tried besides antibiotics? I would recommend bladder training and possibly botox. ...Read more
What's causing chronic diarrhoea with recurrent sepsis & utis for 5 months which started 5 days afterroutine cystoscopy with colistin antibiotic cover?
PMC: The use of antibiotics predisposes someone to have c diff infection even a few weeks after. Since it has become chronic now, worry about interruption also of gut integrity and translocation of bacteria. Have a good exam done, perhaps, by GI and id. The recurrent UTI can be discussed with the person who did the cystoscopy and id to see if there is a predisposing factor. ...Read more
Why do I still suffer with occasional burning urination and terminal hematuria? Seen urologist had cystoscopy no Uti everything normal.
Hematuria: This can occur from numerous things, including infection, stones, cancer, kidney disease or injury, medications and even strenuous exercise. Would strongly recommend seeing a nephrologist or good general internist for a full detailed evaluation. Cystoscopy is not a definitive procedure to exclude all causes. ...Read more
Sore glans. 2 UTI in 7 months. Pain in back & groin. Cystoscopy found urethra to be very red. Given many urine samples over the last year. Any ideas?
Interstit. Cystitis: Have the urine cultures been positive? Must consider interstitial nephritis (diagnosis made with cystoscopy) or infection with atypical bacteria such as chlamydia or mycoplamsa. Course of tetracytcline might help. Also chronic prostatitis comes to mind. Need prostate massage with cultures and treatment with drug that enters prostate gland (septra/bactrim). Might need life long therapy. ...Read more

Okay...: Glad you have been thoroughly checked & confirmed to be okay but trace blood in urine, which is common and usually carries no clinical significance.

Can menopause cause traces of blood in urine and recurrent UTIs. Had cystoscopy and kidney ultrasound - both ok. Also have stage 3 prolapse. I am 68?
No, but...: Menopause would not be related with trace blood in urine. To know more on blood in urine, go to http://formefirst. Com/hematuria. Html for more realistic detail.

Hello Doctor, I am 30 years of age and gave birth to my second son 6 months ago. ..I have left side flank pain since a week after delivery and utis for three months which were treated with antibiotics. I have several check ups like cystoscopy and kidney u
Here are some...: Glad to see you have gone thus far in evaluating left flank pain with unyielding conclusion in the sickness of urinary tracts, I assumed. Beyond such, we need to look into possible disorders of muscles, joints, or nerves of the region. How to get the related things sorted out correctly may not be that hard if following instructions described in http://formefirst. Com/eNewsletter06.html. ...Read more
F/46:UTI took macrobid. Saw urologist, CT scan w/ & w/o contrast, cystoscopy, retested urine, still have blood and WBC. How can this be since views normal?
More info needed: Blood in the urine is not normal and needs to be explained. UTI is one of many possible causes, and if a urine culture shows no infection, we look for other causes. A CT negative for stones and normal cystoscopy do not eliminate the possibility that the problem may be originating in the kidney. Your urologist can help sort this out. ...Read more

I do not think you need anything other than a repeat urine test with microscopy in 3 months. Consider another dr. ...Read more
