I felt a stinging and had fresh blood so looked at my urethral opening with a little mirror, there was an unpleasant looking red lump peeping out from the hole. GP went quiet and referred me fast track to gynae, the consultant had a look, found more lumps that could be felt and referred me to Urology fast track, and I am having a flexible cystoscopy in two weeks.
I have been suffering from back ache and pains in my sides, ie kidney area for quite a long time, plus about six times a year I seem to get a urine infection, pain etc. so flush out by drinking loads of water, would these symptoms be connected? Sometimes I struggle to empty my bladder, sometimes I have to get to the loo every 20 mins or so yet feel like I've held it in for hours, that uncomfortable feeling.
The two Drs I have seen have gone a bit quiet so I haven't liked to ask too many questions but the questions are in my head waiting to be spoken, has anyone else experienced these symptoms? are they relevant?
