Post bladder scar tissue

just want to share some info. i've been having microscopic blood in my urine for the past 2 months. i had an ultrasound on my kidneys which showed 2 cysts which the doctor was not concerned about. today i had the test where they look in the bladder with a little camera. what they found was that i had scar tissue from the 3 pregnancys (i'm a poor speller please forgive me). it was located rigth at the base of the bladder where the urine is expelled. also right above the area there is supposed to be a mucus like lining but mine was completely gone, possibly from past low grade infections (only one infection in my 47 years that i know of ) or just erosion. this area was inflammed and the probable cause of the bleeding. i will be taking antibiotics for 6 weeks and will probably be having a urine test every 4-6 months to monitor the situation for any future infections or problems. i had no symptoms which was surprising to the doctor. just thought i'd let everyone know since i've never seen anyone post this kind of condition.

That really sounds like interstitial cystitis. Ask your doctor if that is possible. Some doctors don't believe in IC, maybe get a second opinion. Good luck to you!
