Bladder pain upon palpation. Also continuous right hip pain. Don't know if the two are related.

Bladder pain upon palpation.  Also continuous right hip pain.  Don't know if the two are related.

Not sure why you are palpating your bladder, but it sounds like an x-ray of the right hip is in order and a visit to your doctor for evaluation of these symptoms. Good luck! ...Read more

You have to be concerned about surgical complications, anesthesia and chemicals in your system, and myriad other trouble that can be compounded by being pregnant.

I suffer from recurrent uti. I have fibroids in my uterus that cause pressure.can this be a reason for continuous bladder infections?

Not usually: Uterine fibroids are not usually associated with recurrent uti's unless they interfere with urination and contribute to incomplete emptying of your bladder, urinary retention; identification of the bacteria that cause each episode of UTI , the selection of the appropriate antibiotics the bacterias are sensitive to and perhaps the advice of a urologist on "long term suppression" may be of value . ...Read more
