All things bladder related / Squamous Metaplasia
« on: June 29, 2010, 02:35:24 PM »
Hi, i'm a 41 year old woman.  From September last year, I had recurrent Urinary Tract Infections, so bad that I was weeing blood, all culture tests came back negative.  I ended up taking 11 courses of anti-biotics and was referred to a Urologist who carried out every test imaginable including a cystoscopy which revealed squamous metaplasia at the opening of the bladder confirming that my bladder had been badly inflamed.  I was put on prophalactic anti-biotics which I came off last week.  I was also suffering what seemed like urge incontinence and was offered more tablets to control this which I refused.  After a visit to a Gynaecologist last week, it appears that I have what he called "impending menopause" - does anyone know whether the two could be linked as I have never had urine infections previously?

Any comments and advice on prevention of further infections would be greatly appreciated.
