Just had my 5th Cystoscopy. I get repeated bacterial & interstitial cystitis. This time I have had botox injected into the bladder walls to help prevent my bladder from shrinking and the walls from cracking.

Comment from: Jack, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: July 06

Repeated episodes of blood in urine, along with intense pain while trying to pass urine. Antibiotics seem to rectify the problem, but it keeps occuring when I finish the course of antibiotics. I've had four separate courses of antibiotics, and the pain and bleeding has returned within 2 to 3 days of finishing each couese. However I completed the last course nearly 6 weeks ago and so far all seems okay. I'm told by the urologist that the cystoscopy is to try and determine why the infection kept returning. I'm now wondering whether I should leasve well enough alone.
