In brief: See answer

Most common causes of a "bladder wall" infection would be either 1) "cystitis cystica" which are tiny <3mm cysts either localized or scattered throughout the bladder lining and usually due to recurrent utis and require long-term (3-6 months or longer) of oral antibiotics to clear; or 2) "interstitial cystitis" which is a non-bacterial inflammation of the bladder. Your urologist should help clarify.
