What are symptoms of damage to urethra, bladder or ureter after urethral stent removal and is there a way to determine damage without imaging?

What are symptoms of damage to urethra, bladder or ureter after urethral stent removal and is there a way to determine damage without imaging?

Stent removal: If you are referring to a ureteral stent removal there are very few side effects associated with their removal. The length of time they were indwelling could have an effect on whether they are encrusted with stone or not. Imaging with I.V. Dye and cystoscopy would be appropriate if symptoms remained after 3 to 4 weeks from removal. ...Read more

What r the symptoms of infected urethra? Scarring of penis or urethra? How can I test for it?

Urethral scar produces urethral stricture. ...Read more

2 vaginal cultures a month apart were pos for BV. Took Flagyl, no help. Why would it not cure it? Also, does BV cause urethra pain? That's my symptom.

2 vaginal cultures a month apart were pos for BV. Took Flagyl, no help. Why would it not cure it? Also, does BV cause urethra pain? That's my symptom.

Bacterial vaginosis: Recurrent/persistent BV is very common and frustrating. BV doesn't cause urethral pain. Trichomonas can mimic BV, but also should respond to metronidazole (Flagyl). Other STDs (gonorrhea, chlamydia) are more common in women with BV; make sure you were tested. If none of these, ask about alternate BV treatments (e.g. clindamycin, boric acid). Also avoid sex or consistent condoms for a few weeks. ...Read more

Can a tense pelvic floor (i.e. Years of heavy squating) cause CPPS? Initially had infection, possibly NGU but symptoms persist. Urethra discomfort100%

Can a tense pelvic floor (i.e. Years of heavy squating) cause CPPS? Initially had infection, possibly NGU but symptoms persist. Urethra discomfort100%

Not the cause: Very insightful question. Pain in CPPS is believed to result primarily from pelvic muscle tenstion, which you seem to know. Physical conditioning of pelvic floor muscles probably doesn't increase such tesnsion. If anything probably would reduce pain in CPPS, not increase it. Keep working with your doctor. The good news is that it's an issue only of comfort, no known serious health outcomes. ...Read more

Urethra discomfort for a while. Doc says no UTI, probably STI. But I don't think symptoms match timeline. Could it be something else?

Here are some. ..: Facts: Not all std-infected patients, especially in men, have all symptoms as described; many are symptom-free with intermittent flare-up reflecting individual ongoing fluctuating immune defense ability.

Trichomonas tenax be transmited via oral sex? CSW used her teeth on my urethra, it was rough. Symptoms: itchy/discomfort urethra. It was irritated too

Trichomonas tenax be transmited via oral sex? CSW used her teeth on my urethra, it was rough. Symptoms: itchy/discomfort urethra. It was irritated too

No risk for trich: T. tenax is normal in the mouth but is not known to cause genital infection. Oral sex probably never transmits trichomonas of any kind. Urethral irritation, especially with penile discharge, could be gonorrhea or nongonococcal urethritis from the oral sex event described. But not trichomonas. See a doctor if your symptoms continue or you otherwise remain concerned. ...Read more

What can cause an inflammed urethra no STD or infection and what symptoms can it cause?

What can cause an inflammed urethra no STD or infection and what symptoms can it cause?

Allergic reaction: Inflammation is typically due to some type of reaction, whether it be to an environmental allergen or an infection, or even the body's own immune system attacking itself. If infection has been ruled out, it could be an allergic reaction, there could be a foreign body there. Symptoms would be pain and pressure sensation combined. A urologist could put a camera in the urethra to check it out. ...Read more

Sore meatus/urethra. Worse after ejaculation. Symptoms since sept 2012. 4 UTI in that time. Urology at a loss. Cirumcision last option. Will it help?

Sore meatus/urethra. Worse after ejaculation. Symptoms since sept 2012. 4 UTI in that time. Urology at a loss. Cirumcision last option. Will it help?

Get Second Opinion: Have you seen more than one urologist? I would get another opinion since 4 uti's in a year seems excessive and if they don't know what's causing it they can't treat it very well or it would be cleared up. It seems the urologist you are seeing whant to see if circumcision is the cure for something even if he doesn't know what the problem is. It might help but there might be other treatments. ...Read more
