Interstitial cystiti: If you had a hydrodistention and bladder examination with a cystoscope that suggests that urologist believes that you have interstitial cystitis. Hydrodistention of your bladder may have exacerbated this chronic pain condition temporarily. Talk to your urologist about your symptoms

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.

3 months left side abdo & flank pain and tenderness blood urine cystoscopy & CT scan fine. No diarrhea, but some constipation. Colonoscopy next. Cause?

Possibilities: A ct scan could have missed a kidney stone that passed just before the scan. It could also miss diverticulitis, depending on whether the ct scan was done with both IV and oral contrast. Colonoscopy is definitely the next thing to do. Another consideration is endometriosis, ovarian cyst, ectopic pregnancy, or inflammatory bowel disease.

Can you tell me about cystoscopy and urodynamic assesment test done?

Here are some...: Cystoscopy is a direct look through urethra into bladder with a telescope under optical vision to see if there are tumor, blockage, stone, stricture, foreign body, etc. Urodynamics is done to test how your bladder and urethra work together, normally or abnormally, and how the urine control can be, so to decide if surgery for blockage or incontinence is needed or not, and how to do them. So, ask dr.

What is the likelyhood of developing peyronies disease when a person has had a cystoscopy performed?

Not from cystoscopy: No reason why person should. Most urologists believe that peyronies is caused by micro-fractures of the erectile penile rods)corora cavernosa). This most frequently occurs during sex with man lying on his back with parner on top.

I need to have a Cystoscopy in Nov. I'm really having anxiety...badly about this. The procedure itself that is. Is this a simple basic thing?

I need to have a Cystoscopy in Nov. I'm really having anxiety...badly about this. The procedure itself that is. Is this a simple basic thing?

Overall: Cystoscopy isn't a particularly risky procedure. I know that doesn't make it any bit less anxiety provoking, as undergoing any procedure (sometimes even just blood draws) can be very stressful. You may want to review any of your concerns with your urologist to help allay any fears you might have. But if your anxiety is that bad, review this with your primary care to come up with a solution.
