:( I went to my gyn,2 weeks ago and I told her my problem wich I've has before,a long,long time ago.And I asked her to please send me to a urologist,instead she sends me to get a ct scan of my pelvis,and send in a couple culters.They came back fine wich I knew they would,except that I have some constipation and should take some stool softeners.
Now ,heres my problem evertime I stand -up I have to go potty,and where the potty comes out the urethra I'm having alot of pain. no itching ,no burning, just pain. Sometimes i cant make it to the bathroom in time and dribble, and theres been a few times where I've actually wet the bed. Could this be from my intestines,or my urethra ? I'm 46, had a complete hystorectomy/appendectomy in 92 and have taken 2mg. estradiol since then. Does anyone have any idea whats going on or which dr I should see ? I'm not going back to my gyny .
Thank you for any help at all. Dawn

This condition is often activated by viruses and after a while the virus is gone but the nervous system can't seem to stop the inflammatory responses. My best advice, find a good doctor of Oriental Medicine, someone who works with the techinque called NAET, (Nambudripad Allergy Ellimination Technique)- it worked wonders for me when I had urinary problems. My urinary problems used to get very bad- I had to use the restroom every hour. I also had several night accidents or near accidents.To find a doctor near you go to naet.comBest.Fruity

  • Does this pain feel like it is pulling on your urethra and traveling up to your lower abdominals. Is this pulling feeling sort of a stretching pain?

  • I used to get that all the time. I spoke to my old coach about it who was also a physical therapist and what was happening was that I strained my abdominal muscles. This is very common among atheletes, especially those who run. It will sometimes hurt to urinate because emptying the bladder pulls on the Traverse Abdominal muscles. It may also hurt if you lean back too far. It should heal within a few weeks and if it doesn't than you may need to see a doctor because you may have caused damage that wont repair without physical therapy. I found it helped me to do stretches and light abdominal work such as jogging or walking, which is pretty much what my coach said a physical therapist would have me do. Good luck, I know the pain is annoying but I garuntee it will go away.

  • Sounds like kidney stones to me!!!

  • The CT might have missed a stone. It depends on the "slice" thickness that was scanned. Sometimes it's just kidney stone gravel which stings also. Sorry, but have you checked for STD's? Urethritis can be helped by perfume free detergents, cotton undies, drinking lots of fluid that will dilute your urine so hopefully it won't sting. Also I'm going to get graphic here so leave if you are offended. Oral sex? Does your mate have a moustache? Do you drink a BIG glass of water after sex and wash immediately with a gentle soap fragrance free? Also, prolapsed uterus will cause your uterus to press against your bladder. You are the right age for that. (pre-menopause). Check with you Gyn doc.

  • It is time to see a urologist, I think. They see women for incontinence all the time. The doctor will get a history. They will get a catheterized urine specimen to check for infection. He can check for problems that come from aging and gravity, such as cystoceles and rectoceles. While you wait you should treat your constipation, because the straining you tend to do with constipation works against those important muscles that control urination. MiraLax is an excellent product that just became available over the counter. I use it and find it much more effective than fiber laxatives alone. If infection and cystocele/rectocele are ruled out and they start talking about surgery for incontinence, consider trying Kegel exercises first. The urologist I worked for never did surgery without trying Kegels, at least for one of the types of incontinence (urgency type versus stress incontinence). Some urologists see more female incontinence patients than others, and the scheduling staff will usually be happy to say if he or she specializes in the problem or they'd suggest someone else.
