Background first..... Went for Cystoscopy in Oct because of urinary pain, problems initiating flow, pee trickling, constant feeling of not draining bladder and UTI symptoms without infections showing up in tests. This went on for over a year before I could get a Dr to listen. Anyway, first Cysto could not be done, my urethra was too narrow. a month later In went in for a rigid under Anastasia. Dr found stricture, was stretched. They said I was fixed, sent me home with antibiotics. My symptoms never got better. As soon as the antibiotics were done I started peeing blood. Walk in put me on antibiotics for another month till I could see my Surgeon again. Stopped peeing blood but symptoms continued. Saw Dr in his office last month. Said he could not do any treatment till he knows what's wrong, with another cysto. He assured me we would not need another rigid and that the soft would work this time. Went in for it yesterday. He couldn't get the scope in. The dilatation he did in Nov. did not work at all. I was given the option yesterday of another dilatation attempt or I will have to Self cath every day. (booked the dilation yesterday)Have a few questions. One, has anyone had a dilatation fail and the next one worked? Second. It is going to be another month till they can get me in for the dilatation but did not send me home with a cath and don't seem to care that they are leaving me for another month without being able to fully drain my bladder. Does this seem OK? The reason I ask is my husband went in for a systo right after me in Nov due to similar symptoms and as soon as they saw he wasn't draining fully, they had a cath in and he had surgery within weeks. He is now fully fixed.
