Customer Question
Hello,I have been having frequent...
Hello,I have been having frequent urination for months. Doctor originally did a cystoscopy and found nothing. Did a prostate exam, thought it felt boggy and diagnosed Prostatitis.After 2 months of no improvement, I went to another urologist and had Urodynamics done. He thinks he found a possible urethral stricture. He no longer thinks I have Prostatitis, being that I have no bacteria and prostate feels rather normal.Is it possible for my original doctor to have completely missed a urethral stricture? The original doctor did the cystoscopy rather quickly (took less than 2 minutes), and took very poor notes. Wondering if he "pushed right past it?"

32. No sir. Only symptom has been frequent urination. Very infrequent perennial and bladder pain, but so infrequent and small that it’s mainly just from me holding it
Urologist: Dr. Phil, MD, Medical Doctor replied 7 months ago

It could also be a bladder issue

what are your symptoms?

Just those. Just basically wanting to know if it is possible for a urologist to miss a urethral stricture on a cystoscopy (as per my first question). I feel as if the cystoscopy was rather rushed and poorly documented. My new urologist found a stricture on a Urodynamics X-ray but he is not sure if that was there before or if it is the result of my prior cystoscopy. Could the stricture have been missed, or pushed through without noticing, on the original cystoscopy?

Sorry about the late reply. I was offline. Yes absolutely. A poorly done procedure can miss this. I hope this helps. Please don't forget a 5 star rating. I appreciate it. If you have any other questions just reply.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
