I recently had a flexible cystoscopy and biopsies and some cystodiathermy . I have an appointment to see the consultant this Friday for results of biopsies . But this week I have been struggling to pass urine and when I do it is painful sting and I pass a clump of flesh coloured tissue. The clump of tissue is about the size of my little toe . My question is could this be due to the Diathermy I had and I am just passing dead bladder that was burned off or should I ring the doctor tomorrow.

Happy Easter 🙂

If you are seeing the specialist on Friday, save this question for him/her then. I suspect your Gp will say the same.

For the time being, to help with any stinging on passing urine, try a some bicarb mixed in water 3 times a day to take the acidity out of your urine. Given the trauma to your bladder wall, its no wonder its causing pain when you pass water and the procedure may have caused retention and delay in passing water. Again talk to your specialist about all of this on Friday. I'd also ask your specialist to culture your urine in case there is a post op infection.

In the meantime, drink plenty of bland fluids and eat a bland diet to keep things calm so that any acidic food doesn't antagonise your bladder.

Wishing you better health very soon.
