Lately I have noticed an increase in bubbles in the stool when
I urinate. Is this anything to be concerned about?
Thank you for posting.
I am not sure I understand your symptoms. Bubbles in the urine stream is abnormal unless you have had a recent catheter or a recent cystoscopy ( looking in the bladder with a scope). More worrisome causes of bubbles in the urine include a severe urinary tract infection with a gas forming organism. ( usually in diabetics). More common is a connection of the bladder and bowel. This is called a enterovesical fistula ( enter means intestine and vescial is in reference to the bladder). This fistula can be caused by a tumor, a swallowed bone (fish or chicken most common) or Crohn
