Hi Sara Anne, thank your reply. I am incredible lucky that the polyps were benign but I am not sure how they diagnosed that, I presume they did biopsies. I was treated here in Australia but I thought that diathermy was a regular practice, it's just quarterization the region of the polyp? It's just so frustrating having no idea if I am still in pain because of this procedure or because I have something else wrong.

Hi all, I have been suffering from chronic bladder pain and urgency to urinate for almost 5 months now. The doctors were unable to work out what was wrong with me as all my tests were clear and I had no infection. 3 weeks ago I had a cytoscopy and they found two inflammatory polyps in my bladder which they then treated with diathermy. I had three days of terrible pain then after that all my previous symptoms resumed and they are still occurring. My specialist has not been very helpful and I cannot seem to get any answers about the actual recovery time from diathermy to the bladder. Has anyone else had a longer then expected recovery time? Can my symptoms just be because of inflammation that has still not gone away? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! thank you,
