I had cystoscopy carried out just over a year ago and another cystoscopy at the same time of removing endometriosis last spring. My urogynacologist has also treated me a few months ago with small amount of silver nitrate on caruncle, she also looked in to urethra with camera and said it looked normal up until end of urethra, it hurt at the end when she took cystoscope out. Silver nitrate helped me for a few days initially then skin came away and urgency came back with a vengeance. My urologist has said he can remove this under general anthasetic and then I would need to have tube in urethra for a few days whilst it heals and to check bladder at same time. I know this is not going to go away on its own and need some advise, I am also frightened that if I have any more ops that my bladder will be totally messed up for good but am desperate to get it sorted. It is really affecting my life and I would not wish symptoms on anyone.
Do you think that urgency is due to urethra probs, it is incredibly sensitive and I can only shower and use no perfumed soaps ect. How long does it take for urethra to heal from having some of it's tissue removed?
I have had strep b found in vag swabs a few times over the last yr or so and also once in my urethra + had antibiotics. Whenever any normal discharge or period blood goes in to urethra it stings like mad. What microbiological tests do you recomment I have?
What is gc? I have tested negative on all STDs, smear test normal, all urine test(s) have been normal, not in a relationship. As I am waiting for back appointment 1st I have got time to get these tests done in urethra. Last vag swab 2 wks ago borderline strep b again.
