Hi,

Welcome back.
Adult reflux is usually of relatively little consequence.
Even if REFLUX OCCURS, the risk of obstruction ( if ureterocele is not operated) to the flow of urine from the kidney posts more risk to the kidney than the reflux.

Best regards

Hi,
If the urine is sterile, there should be no worry.
It is most probably the jet of urine landing on the water causing it.

Hi,

Welcome back.
Unfortunately, i cant see the report.
One needs to see and do physical examination before proceeding further.
So talking does not help.
Please speak to your doc ( Urologist) on this issue for decision making.
I think we have discussed enough.

OK, last question, what kind of cytoscopy they use, rigid or flexible? do I need general anastettic?
 
 
Answered by Dr. G.Srinivasan 2 hours later
Rigid resectoscope ( a little bigger cystoscope used for intervention needs). Can be done under regional/ general anesthetic. Nearly impossible to do under local anesthetic (Numbness medicine) alone.
