turbt 5 weeks ago... painful urination now

3 years 8 months ago - 3 years 8 months ago #50657 by Ann Marie
Hello,

Sorry to hear about all you are going through.

I had a TURBT on January 20. I felt fine and then two weeks later I started to get the bladder pressure/pain and constantly feeling the urge to urinate, plus blood in my urine. It feels like the way Interstitial Cystitis feels. My urologist told me that it can take time to heal, possibly even a few months!

He prescribed for me Rapaflo, which I only took for two days because it was making me nauseous and light headed. The blood has since gone away, but the pain is still there. I'm going crazy reading about what to take to heal this. I'm now trying Marshmallow Root and Corn Silk, which has great reviews for urinary issues and pain. Has anyone else tried this?

I understand what you're going through. Hope you feel better soon.

Wow! I am certainly feeling a bit better about things knowing I'm not alone (though I don't wish this on anyone).

Urologist found a quarter size spot on the inside of the bladder that she said looked like 'road rash'.... very raw and rough. A lot of thin veins, some visible spots of bleeding and clotting.


She cauterized three to four spots while she was in there and now it's wait and see a few more weeks.

So far so good though, I've only had blood three times since, much better than before... but it's back to pain full urination again.... I guess that's good though.

Appreciate all the responses, and being able to talk about this out here!

2/3/16 update:

My urologist called the other day to check in (he was on vaca and he was not the person who I saw the other day.)

He said that the spot on my bladder (the one described as a quarter sized spot of road rash) was not in the same location as were the tumor was removed from, and that he has no idea what is causing all this irritation and this 'new' spot.

that has me a tad alarmed, but its still the 'wait and see' approach until my next scheduled cysto. in a month.

The Dr. said he did more work this time so that was probably why the pain was more this time. It is a good thing you are getting checked out maybe you will get your answers. Goodluck Rocky


two months! wow....

I guess I wasn't expecting this so far out from the procedure, but interesting to read the time frame others have had with this.

thanks for sharing, it helps to settle the mind a tad reading what others have gone thru in the sense that it maybe wasn't unexpected, but it isn't unheard of.

seems like there are a lot of different after effects to the Turb procedure for people :(
