Thank you! I have been having problems with urinating every 10 to 20 minutes. My bladder is not in its right place. I am a cancer servivor and have had all female parts removed. I know I do not have a urinary track infection I know what those feel like. But I have a fishy smell there that I'm worried about.
Expert:  Ashley Mires replied 9 months ago.
Hi there, It sounds like a bladder or kidney infection, rather than a UTI. The urge to frequently urinate is a common symptom of this as well.
Expert:  Ashley Mires replied 9 months ago.
Other diagnoses to be ruled out include sexually transmitted diseases.
Expert:  Ashley Mires replied 9 months ago.
In either case, a course of antibiotics should clear up the problem. What do you mean when you say your bladder is not in the right place?

This is very embarrassing
Expert:  Ashley Mires replied 9 months ago.
I understand you are embarrassed, but situations just like yours are what we deal with every day as medical professionals, and there's nothing to be embarrassed about as far as we are concerned. Has your current doctor shed any light as to what could be the issue, i.e. lab testing, urinalysis, or have you not undergone any testing?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
