Resolved Question:

I am very worried. I had a urodynamic test four weeks ago. I do not have an infection but am having symptoms of prickling and pressure in the area of the vulva. These feelings seem to be continuing and making me very worried as to what can have happened during the test to produce these symptoms. A nurse performed the test but I have to wait another two weeks to see specialist in urogynaecology. Please can you offer some explanation and reassurane in the meantime?

Hi and thanks for the query.

What kind of urodynamic tests did you have, were any catheters used?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
catheters were used
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
a catheter fell out during procedure so had to be re-inserted
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 9 months ago.

Okay, sometimes, catheters used during urodynamic tests can out stretch the sphincters and cause them to be injured, this can take about 6 weeks to heal completely. This is possible when the catheters are inserted multiple times.

This is definitely not an infection.

I would suggest that you give it some more time.

Hope this helps.

Do you think there is a risk of permanent damage?
Expert:  Dr Uzair replied 9 months ago.

Unlikely, to cause any permanent damage. Long term complications have never been reported nor have I seen with Urodynamic tests.

This will heal within 6 weeks.

Hope this helps.
