I really hope someone on here can help me I am struggling to find answers anywhere and feel so upset. I’ve struggled with UTI’s frequently for years and years and in the last three/four months it became a constant daily struggle with the symptoms of a UTI- mainly urgency to pee. It becomes a lot worse at night and just constantly have the feeling and use the bathroom every 30minutes to an hour . There was no infection on any of the tests just the symptoms and always a slight stinging and a constant awareness of feeling like I need to wee but in my urethra not from my bladder. Everytime I would exercise or walk a lot it would get worse and as a fitness instructor I love to workout and have to maintain my workouts as it’s my job but I obviously wasn’t able to do so. After a few scans I finally had a cystocopy and urethral dilation five days ago. After the initial soreness I expected to feel some relief but my symptoms are now worse than before and I feel exactly the same. The doctor said my urethra was very narrow and so they widened it. I had a catheter in for three hours after.
I don’t know what to do! I feel so heart broken because I expected this to be the relief I have been praying for. It also hurts to have sex and whenever I did it was incredibly painful and would almost feel like I had something in there afterwards so I had to stop having sex with my boyfriend. Should I have felt some relief after the dilation? Is this a sign that something is still wrong? I’m at my wits end and don’t know what to
I had a urodynamics test as well as a ultrasound and all normal. When my problems got worse they never retested my blood or did a swab.
Thank you. Bella xx
