I lurk often but am posting for the first time to see if any of you have experienced urethral diverticulum. I gave birth nearly five months ago to my daughter and a few months after giving birth I noticed symptoms of what seemed to be pelvic organ prolapse so I made an appointment with a urologist in the area. Well, after my exam they said I wasn't displaying any symptoms of pelvic floor prolapse and that my pelvic floor actually seemed pretty strong.
What they did mention was urethral diverticulum. You can just Google that to see more about the condition. It seems as if UD can only be treated surgically.
Now, I haven't been formally diagnosed because I still need to get an MRI but I am quite concerned that I have this condition. I really don't want to get surgery. It sounds awful and I'd need to wear a cath for a while, not to mention i don't want to be on pain meds and recovering from surgery while breastfeeding and caring for an infant full-time. Also, complications seem like a big possibility and I would like to have more children and not have anything get in the way of having future vaginal deliveries.
If you've experienced the surgery or this condition and can share anything about your experience, I'd really appreciate it. I've seen one poster discuss this condition here but not much else. And i haven't found anything online on how surgery impacts childbirth in the future. Thank you so much.
