Collaped bladder??

I'm 21 and male. I had a condom break and now have uti (maybe std) symptoms and now kidney pains. I have had all std testing and a urine culture and all come back negative. I have been treated with antibiotics with no luck. I had an ultra sound done to look at my bladder and kidneys about a week ago and they told me I have a collapsed bladder??? Has anyone heard of this? Or what could have caused this? I cant find anything on the internet about this!
Thank you for your time

Hi,
The term collapsed bladder is used when a patient goes for the ultrasound without drinking enough water and without holding urine. It’s the same as an empty bladder. Probably, the ultrasonologist meant that only and thus noting much to worry. It’s always good to ask a question then and there only, if one has any doubts. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

My doctor told me I would have to go to the urologist and that they would have to probably do something to blow it up or do something to fix it haha Shows how much he knows... I am going to the urologist next week anyway cause I still cant figure out whats going on...
Any ideas??
I feel like it has to be an infection of some sort but everything comes back negative...
Could it be a fungus or a parasite? Would they show up in a urine culture?
My doctor says any kind of an infection would show up in a urine culture and theres no way I have an infection but I can feel it and see it! (the tip of my penis around the urethra is a bit red)
Thank you for the reply and for the help! I am some what relieved :)

Hi,
The chances of you having a urinary infection is quite low if the urine culture is sterile and thus I don’t think you need to worry as suggested by your doctor. However, normally, there shouldn’t be any redness of the meatus and the cause for the same needs to be looked into. This could be due to some inflammation and not necessarily infection and taking some anti-inflammatory drugs might help. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

What about the pain in the kidney areas? And the frequency? And the unusual tingling/burning sensation before urinating? I am certain there has to be something there.. maybe not an infection but what? The ultra sound of both my bladder and kidneys came back normal.... Everything is normal except what I'm feeling. Doesnt make any sense.....

Hi,
The symptoms which you have described are typically seen in a patient who has got a stone in the urinary tract and for the same, ultrasound may not be the best confirmatory test, although it’s a good initial investigation to look for the stone. I’ll suggest a CT-IVU in which a contrast is injected intravenously and as the contrast moves through the urinary tract, CT scan is taken to look for he stones. The stones in the ureter can be missed by the ultrasound but not by the CT-IVU and thus please discuss this option with your urologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.

What causes kidney stones? I heard being dehydrated cause them but I drink mostly water and juice. Would taking too many vitamins cause a stone? I have been taking alot of vitamins trying to relieve my symptoms. Especially vitamin c..

Everyone else on here keeps telling me I probably have kidney stones too but my symptoms dont match up. Some say that the pain of passing a stone is almost comparable to pregnancy. My pains arent sharp pains. And they say its mostly when moving. But the pains I'm experiencing are not sharp pains when moving .. I feel it more when I'm not moving and when I'm sitting. When I'm laying down or standing/walking its not as bad but I still feel it. The pain is moderate and pretty constant and on both sides (both kidneys). But not in one area, sometimes the pain is more in my abdomen below my rib cage and sometimes its in my back below the rib cage or pretty much random pains all over my lower back that seem to be from my kidneys (not normal back pains). So i'm thinkin it has to be some sort of an infection. Plus all my other symptoms.. This just doesnt add up.. Hopefully the urologist can help me when I go friday.

I had a prostatectomy 16 months ago and have suffered from urine leakage because of the prostate removal. I had a CT scan last week to look at my abdominal aortic aneurism and it also identified my bladder as mostly collapsed. Question: What can be done to return the bladder to normal?

I am 52 year female
I went for USG Pelvis Screening
report is as under
"Uterus appears normal in size, measures about 65×36×40 mm.
A small well defined heterogeneous lesion is noted in anterior abdominal wall,
measures about 17×19 mm.
Endometrial thickness is about 4 mm.
Cervix appears normal.

What does it mean? Does it mean that there is a swelling in uterus. Does that cause cancer?

There are two questions,  one is of 21st September and another is of 1st October,  which are unattended.
Then what is the fun of having a website? If nobody is there to reply.
