I am wondering in somone, anyone can help me.
For the past 3 weeks I have had what I thought were typical uti symptoms - needing to pee often, feeling bladder pressure and like I am going to burst, but oftentimes little comes out and frequently I have to strain to get started. I went to the dr. and I had no sign of infection, but trace amounts of blood and so the dr. put me on a course of antibiotics for a week.
Fast forward and week and half - no improvement, and my symptoms are pretty much still there and certainly get worse as the day goes on. I also have what appears to be a bulge of tissue the closes the opening of my vagina and I have had it since my 4th child was born, and never really though anything of it and my dr. never said much other than I need to do kegels (I have had 4 kids - all vaginal, and some traumatic, in the past 6 years(. Anyhow, began researching and it seems my symptoms are those exactly of how a prolapsed bladder seem. So, I went to the er today becasue I was so uncomfortable yesterday and he said it looked like weakening of the pelvic floor but no serious prolapse?! Don't get it becasue there is something literally blocking he entrance in!! All I got was to go follow up with my gynecologist, and that I should also get some repeat urine work as there are still traces of blood present.
So confused, and getting way ahead of myself worried sick that I might have uterine cancer or something dreadful becasue there is some blood in the urine.
Can any of you tell my if your symptoms of a cystocele line up with what I have described??
