Sonogram (Definition)

An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more

I always feel wanna pee and my bladder is full after cleaning I test for UTI came - I had ultrasound nothing bad, viescare helped but now it doesn't?

I always feel wanna pee and my bladder is full after cleaning I test for UTI came - I had ultrasound nothing bad, viescare helped but now it doesn't?

Treat: I would try a round of antibiotics. If still having issues chronic cystitis can be treated by using a drug called an snri. Cymbalta (duloxetine) at 30 mg can decrease ascending pain signals in those processes we call functional somatic syndromes which is pain out of proportion to tissue damage. A urologist may be consulted and there are meds that help the problem directly but it may be a pain feedback loop. ...Read more

Have lower back pain & some bladder pain yet I have no UTI symptoms so I'm not sure what could be going on. Any thoughts? Should I see dr or wait?

Have lower back pain & some bladder pain yet I have no UTI symptoms so I'm not sure what could be going on. Any thoughts? Should I see dr or wait?

See Dr: Whilst unusual, it is still possible to have a urinary tract infection with minimal symptoms. The lower back pain could also be referred pain from your lumbar spine, a common symptom of a pinched or irritated nerve. You need to see your doctor sooner for an examination as well as a Urine dipstick test to rule out an early urinary tract infection which can develop complications if left untreated. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a kidney infection, w/out a bladder infection? I have all UTI symptoms, left lower back pain and 2 cultures come back negative.

One idea: If you have a fever and marked tenderness over the kidney, there's an off-chance that you have a staphylococcal kidney abscess. A second idea is a stone. Your physician knows how to follow up on these and other possibilities. ...Read more

Frequency: Even if the baby wasn't breech you would likely have more urinary frequency and urgency as the amount of urine your bladder can fill before feeling full is less. If however you get blood in the urine or burning assume it may be a UTI and call your OB ...Read more

UTI symptoms, pain in my right pelvic area. Ultrasound from GYN: kidney stone at junction of ureter and reflux in kidneys. Cant see Uro for 1 mo. Bad?

Bad to the "stone": The pain is the kidney stone getting stuck and unstuck like a ball valve at the narrow juncture of the ureter entry into the bladder. The infected urine is "backing up" into the kidney and requires continuous antibiotics until you can get to the Urologist who has ways to either retrieve surgically the stone through the bladder or breaking it up with lithotripsy- so no "romancing the stone". ...Read more

My urologist said last week that my urine looked fine and no uti, but I've had irritation in my bladder and a strong odor that smells yeasty. Ideas?

See answer: If you are having symptoms of recurrent UTIs (especially urinary frequency and bladder/pelvic pressure, discomfort, or pain) in the presence of an unremarkable urinalysis and negative urine culture, you may well have a bladder problem called Interstitial Cystitis (aka Painful Bladder Syndrome). Diagnosis made by the above history and facilitated by a cystoscopy/hydrodistension under anesthesia. ...Read more

My 20 year old daughter has sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and UTI symptoms. Throat culture showed Strep B. Dr gave Keflex- is it necessary?

My 20 year old daughter has sore throat, swollen lymph nodes and UTI symptoms. Throat culture showed Strep B. Dr gave Keflex- is it necessary?

I'd take it: Strep B is not known as a throat pathogen but does cause an occasional UTI. I would assume the throat issue is viral (no strep A) and the Group B strep as cause of the urinary symptoms. The keflex is a reasonable choice. The throat issue and related nodes should pass in the next week or so with no particular treatment. ...Read more

Can bladder cancer be seen on ultrasound? If u/s shows no tumor, should further testing be done on a child with gross terminal hematuria? Not a uti.

Can bladder cancer be seen on ultrasound? If u/s shows no tumor, should further testing be done on a child with gross terminal hematuria? Not a uti.

Here are some. ..: Ultrasound study only gives a gross rough imaging assessment with low sensitivity for small lesions. So, it is an absolute saying no bladder cancer. Terminal gross hematuria suggests its origin from the urethra, especially prostate urethra. So, a cystourethroscopy under anesthesia is needed. But, how far an evaluation should go for? It should be individualized. So, ask and talk with Doc timely. ...Read more

How long after starting bactrim will it take for a uti to clear up? I'm going on day 3 and it still feels like my bladder isn't emptying completely.

Resistant germs: If you are not getting better from these antibiotics, I would worry about the germ being 'resistant'. This is an increasingly common problem these days- for multiple reasons... I would DEFINITELY check back with the doc who ordered the medication-hopefully they did a urinary culture, which would serve as a guide to the best therapy. You should be better by now. I would drink LOTS of water too ...Read more

I don't have a UTI but my bladder is sensitive and sore and I go frequently, what can it be?? On endep (amitriptyline) to control it very sensitive : (ouch

Some good ideas: There are several addt'l things you can do until this clears, but talk w/ your doctor about alternatives too if it doesn't clear soon. Endep (amitriptyline) will not kill an infection from what I know. Drink lots of water - lots! And read this website - try an OTC pill like AZO or Aussie equivalent.

5 days cephalexen for UTI 500 2x a day. Today 4th day feeling mostly better but I still burn when I accidentally hold my bladder, no time else Normal?

If you still have: UTI symptoms (burning on urination, frequent urination, inability to hold/ incontinence, foul odor etc) then you probably still have infection and the cephalexin is not enough to treat. Return to the healthcare provider to inquire about possibility of continuing infection. Pain/burning sensation can remain a few days to a week after the infection has cleared though. ...Read more

Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more
