Hiya, I've been getting a lot more discharge than usual lately,

This answer was rated:

Hiya, I've been getting a lot more discharge than usual lately, this started about just over a month ago before I went into hospital and had my gall bladder removed 2 weeks ago. I have tried thrush tablets and a pessary from the doctors but this hasn't helped me. I don't feel itchy or a burning sensation it just feels uncomfortable like my bladder is constantly full even if I have just been to the toilet, I feel like I wet myself a little when the discharge comes out. Im worried it could be something more serious. It dosnt have an odour and isn't yellowy. I've been on iv antibiotics and oral antibiotics in hospital gall bladder infection which I know can cause thrush but I've been on the thrush tablets 2 weeks now and done a pessary 5 days ago. I'm worried it could be cervical cancer. My bowel movements have increased, I used to go twice/three times a week and at the moment I'm going twice a day and I dont know whether that's becaise of the gall bladder being removed or to do with this. Also yesterday and today on the left lower side I've felt a feeling, not painful or sharp just noticeable that something's there, even the feeling to go urinate feels different? I have lost a lot of weight in hospital due to low day diet but I am worried it's something more

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
No that hasn't been mentioned to me before I keep getting sent away with thrush tablets but felt no difference felt the need and pressure to urinate more, in hospital I had quite a few urine tests which showed nothing but not since I've been to the gp about this problem, what is interstitial cystitis?
Interstitial cystitis sounds like exactly what you have Jennifer
It is a condition of bladder spasm
It feels just like a UTI but isn't. There is no infection when the urine is checked
It is treated with medicines like amitriptyline and elmiron and a low acid diet
