Had hair in urine for the past few months. Really REALLY hurts to pee, and I was originally diagnosed with Interstitial cystitis about a year ago. With IC flare ups normally last a long time, then subside for months, then come back. But it was different for me. This is how it would always go: I would start feeling pain, then more pain, then excruciating pain over the course of a week, then I would feel what felt like a small obstruction pop out of my urethra, and everything would soon return to a level 0 or 1 on the pain and discomfort scale. I would be fine for about a week then bam, another obstruction, pee would trickle, and pop, another microscopic undetectable obstruction seemed to pop out and my stream would be fine again. It was way too up and down to be IC, and I was 100% sure things were coming out of me, even though I could never really see anything that came out. Then during one "flare up" these three black stones, smaller then the tip of a pencil, came out and were at the bottom of the bowl. I assumed they were finally big enough to be seen, as if they'd grown or something, so I saved them. A few weeks later a small black hair about the length of my thumb nail exited my urethra, with excruciating pain (9 or 10 for sure), and then for the past few weeks more and more have come out.
This all sounds like a dermoid cyst that's pushed its way into my bladder or urethra and is emptying its contents into them. I am subsequently peeing out those contents, and they are ripping up my urethra!!! Hair is sharp people! And long! In fact just last week I peed out a hair so long I had to pull the tail end of it out, it was about 10 inches long!
But here's the problem: neither an MRI nor CTscan have shown anything wrong in the area! Both tests came back negative, and they show no strange growths or tumors of any kind. Just today I went in for a cystoscope but it was too painful, I screamed so loud my urologist got scared and refused to keep going. I think my urethra is just so raw and scarred I can't take any more abuse to the area. So they're going to have to knock me out to do the scope test, but I don't know when that's gonna be.
