My husband has a bubble in his bladder and has had every test possible. He doesn't have an infection, or any prostate problem. Is this something to be alarmed about? They now want him to go to an infectious disease Dr. My husband will not make that appointment.
Sorry, I'm not meaning to be dumb but do you mean an air bubble or is it a bubble caused by a ureterocele near where the ureter joins the bladder inside. If it is a bubble of air could they not do a cystoscopy and draw the air out or do a fine needle aspiration under ultrasound are remove the air if it is a trouble to him. What makes them think he needs an iunfectious disease follow-up? Is it because of the bubble? It sounds most odd!!
You will need to nag him to go for the appointment, I think.
