Narrowed tube into bladder
I had a cystoscopy 3 weeks ago after suffering quite severe pain each morning when I waken since last May. The tube leading into my bladder was found to be narrowed which meant my bladder didn't empty properly. Urologist said they stretched the tube. I had no further pain after that for 3 weeks, but now the pain has returned. Does this mean I will have to have the tube stretched again - can it revert back to being narrowed? Is there anything can be done to stop it narrowing again?

Hi,

Was it discussed with you what could have caused the tube to narrow down? Was it a stricture or simply an anatomic anomaly? A follow up consult wth your physician will help determine if this has recurred. Dilatation may not be the definite cure for your condition.The procedure may have offered a transient resolution only. Discuss with your physician other options ( like surgery if applicable ) in your case.Other less invasive but more long term options may be present.
