George,

Evidently, there was no oath taken here. I am seeing way too much of this same attitude with doctors...not just my own doctor either.

Well, I didn't actually 'get out'. I am still going to this doctor for most of my care in this area because, frankly, there are no other doctors that I can go to around here that would 'catch' anything early enough and none of the other doctors are Urologists, too.

Thanks...I guess I have to just wait and see what happens next and hope he does a biopsy THIS TIME??? :blink:

Hemangioma

In children on lateral or posterior walls; 50% are detected in adults

Associated with cutaneous hemangiomas, Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (port-wine hemangiomas, varicose veins, soft tissue and bone hemihypertrophy)

Painless hematuria

Gross: sessile

Micro: cavernous type

DD: telangiectasia, arteriovenous malformations, angiosarcoma
they are benign
Urethral caruncle...also benign
-Menorrhagia..thats just heavy menstral bleeding which often occurs pre menopause
Don't know why he's looking at your ovarian cysts? I'd check with my ob/gyn on that one.
Multiple Trabeculation is a thickening of the bladder wall over time.
Any conclusions made from this???..hope Pruthi makes sense of it. I can't........sorry.........Pat



Pat,

Yeah, I don't remember seeing any red noses but they found something pretty amusing at my expense. :huh:

Okay.... I am going to assume everything is fine, I guess.

Oh, I have PCOD...both ovaries have cysts that rupture pretty consistently. :blink:

My only conclusion is that there was no biopsy so I have to 'wait and see' if something comes back that they can check.

Thanks, Pat. :)

Pat,

I went yesterday to pick up my records that I asked for days ago. While driving up there I started feeling even worse about it because I was already getting attitudes from a few of the women in the office and by the time I got there, they asked me 'why' I wanted them and laughed. They proceeded to say that they were not ready yet, 'so and so' was on lunch and I would have to wait for her, and after about a 15 minute wait, she came out and handed them to me.

As I read them in the car, I started noticing a couple of things that I wasn't aware of. :huh: They mention that 'I requested the Cystoscopy'. I wouldn't have known to ask for that. Also, I had mentioned the idea that maybe I could be starting Menopause or be in Menopause, it was dismissed and I was told my hormone levels were fine. In the records (under 'Assessment') it shows "Menopause". It mentions a little later that I am "on no medication for my Menopause". :blink: Why would this have been kept from me? I still have irregular, terrible periods and always have but, I think it is important to know if I am in Menopause or not. I am wrong to think I should have been told this--especially since I asked? :unsure:

Later, it mentions my reason for coming to see him on a certain day is 'anxiety'. I never went to him and asked for aid in this area. I went through a multiple-year court battle/divorce (ending last month) and lost my father to Alzheimer's during the divorce. Who WOULDN'T be stressed about these things? :huh: It is tough to just 'get past it all'. Maybe they just asked if I was a bit anxious and put it there to mention it. :S

Anyway, it never mentions a biopsy because they didn't do one. It mentions:

-Neoplasm of the bladder Micro Hemangiomas and Poypoidal lesions (2) at Trigone all cautherized.
-Urethral caruncle
-Ovarian cysts
-Menorrhagia
-Multiple Trabeculation and Hemangiomas Visualized.

Also mentioned is the crimp in my urethra which "creates painful insertion of Cystoscope"...yeah. Then, it mentions the ablation of the lesions. I don't see much after that.... Any ideas Pat and Christine?

I did send these records to the secretary at the doctor's office you recommended, Pat. Thank you. She will contact me later. I will let you know!
