Endometriosis in urinary tract

Maybe. The doctor found gland cells in my urine. We think it's endometriosis. I've had constant urinary infections and phantom symptoms even when i don't for over 2 years now. I never thought about it before the urologist mentioned it but it does get worse when my period comes around.

For the most part its not really painful in the 'oh my god ow' kind of way. But i almost constantly feel like, if you ever have started urinating and then stopped midway, that kind of feeling all the time.

I'm in school now, and even though all my teachers know about this it messes with my sleep horribly, to the point where i can barely remember my inhaler in the morning.

Does anyone have any advice for relieving the problem? the doctor put me on tamsulosin and that has helped some, but not completely.

I think its possible it is just discharge. I was however thinking when I first started searching online for this that I came a long something about scar tissue causing discharge from the urethra so I am not sure if that could possibly be the case as I still don't know because it still happens to me.

The only way to confirm Endo 100% is through lap surgery. I am not sure fi that is something you are considering but it would be the only way to know for sure.

I've had an ultrasound and a contrast mri, as well as a bunch of tests run with a catheter. There was nothing in my bladder or kidneys even remotely like that. I've also dealt with ibs for several years.

Has your doctor mentioned the possibility of IC (interstitial cystitis)?

I am not saying that it could not be Endo because it very well could be. I had Endo on the bladder as well as the ureters but had all the symptoms of IC. The Endo also did not perforate the bladder or ureters.

Have you been diagnosed with Endo surgically? Have you had a cystoscopy done to rule out other bladder diseases like IC?
