Customer Question
I have had the feeling...
I have had the feeling of frequent urination so about 2.5 weeks now. It was a lot worse when o forst noticed it. I was going about 10-15 times a day. I went to the doctor and he did a yrinaylsis and culture with both coming back negative. I have only been going about 6-9 times a day the past few days now but I still have a feeling that I need to go more often. Like the feeling doesn't actually go away. I was prescribed levofloxin 250ml but was told once the culture came back to stop taking them. I never started because I saw that they had some serious side effects so I didn't want to take the chance if I didn't need to. Today I have only went 4 times so far but when I just went an hour ago it already feels as if I need to go again. Is this all in my head or could this be a problem still even with negative results. I still have the antibiotics so should I take them just to see if it helps at all? Thanks in advance. I have been pretty worried about this because I've read some of these symptoms can be because of bladder cancer. I did have an ultrasound on my kidneys and abdomen about 6 weeks ago also that all was normal but that was for an unrelated reason.

No diabetes or back surgery. I did have a cyst removed from tailbone about 5 years ago but that has never seems to bother me. What is retention?
Urologist: Ross, Urologist replied 28 days ago

bladder cancer is not what I would think of first, the urinalysis would have had blood in it with cancer I hope that helped

retention is your bladder not emptying which could be from the back surgery either way you need a bladder scan or pelvic ultrasound
