23-year-old female. Had a cystoscopy last Thursday and urinary retention since then. I ended up in the ER yesterday, where they inserted a foley. Over 330 cc drained out in less than an hour. The doctor decided to leave the foley in until Monday, but it is rather painful. In addition, I feel strongly like I need to urinate, and I am very nauseated. I have been slightly nauseated since the cystoscopy, but it is SEVERE now with this cath in. Is there a connection?
Also, the urologist said everything "looks fine" with the cystoscopy but took biopsies anyway. Does this mean it's probably not IC or can I still have IC with everything looking "fine"? My body has been responding to drugs like Sanctura, so I know SOMETHING is wrong.
