Hello Boyden
Am sorry to read of your Cystoscopy result, what was the explanation given to you at that time??
It would appear that,Treatment will depend on which part of the Bladder is affected

I have found a few links on the Web that may help, but would ask you to contact the COB Office today for advice, and if you become a Member for a small fee, they will be able to offer you so much more assistance and support.

This first info taken from our own BHUK website

Trigonitis
Trigonitis refers to changes seen under cystoscopy to the tissue of the trigon (the neck of the bladder). The condition occurs when the normal bladder lining cells (urothelium) are replaced with squamous (skin derived) cells and is typically found in postmenopausal women or younger women with fluctuating levels of oestrogen. The cause of trigonitis is not yet known but on occasion electrocautery is used as a treatment. Antibiotics and anticholinergics may also be recommended.

Hope this maybe of help, but please do keep posting your journey, as this will help others searching similar info.
Kind regards
Kate

Thank you for the reply. I had the cystoscopy done under general anaesthetic because I also had urethral stricture removed and urethral dilation but was not told about the squamous metaplasia I only found out because it was on surgery discharge letter I was given it was not until the following day after procedure that I read it. Should I get in touch with the urology department? Or should I get in touch with specialist urology nurse who has been assigned to me? I did not have the consultant or his registrar come and see me before I was discharged.

Hello Boyden
Bless you.
I would first ring your specialist urology nurse, she should have all your information and if you are not happy with her response you can always ask to speak with the Consultant.

Hope you are recovering well from your cystoscopy.

Hi Boyden

I have squamous metaplasia with trigonitis. I think the squamous metaplasia refers to changes due to irritation in my case, in the trigone area (base of the bladder). I don't think it's anything too serious - I have had it for 20 years now.

I hope you aren't too sore after your cystoscopy.

Hi firefly
Thank you for your reply I don't know what part of the bladder it was found in. Had cystoscopy done under general anaesthetic had urethral stricture removed and urethral dilation as well. Never saw consultant or registrar before discharge.only knew about the squamous metaplasia after reading it in my discharge letter under procedures. Been allocated a clinical specialist nurse tried to contact her today but will not be back till Wednesday. Still in a bit of pain only before and after wee so is bearable.
