'Chronic' means present for a long period, 'uretheral' means related to 'urethera', which is the tube connecting urinary bladder to the exterior and 'obstruction' means that there is hinderance to the outflow of urine. The pain / discomfort may be due to the dilated urinary bladder (as it cannot empty itself fully) or due to infection (which tends to occur in stagnant urine) or due to the causative factor (which could be stricture, stone, cyst, tumour, inflammation or the drag because of prolpse of uterus or vaginal wall). I think your mother requires a clinical examination by a urologist and a gynaecologist. She would require some investigations including urine examination (routine test and culture), Ultrasound examination alongwith post void residue and a uro-flow study. She may need a cystoscopy for further evaluation, depending on the results of the investigations. Proper treatment can be planned only after the above evaluation.

Hello, I will be going to a doctor soon but I just wanted to know what the causes for a urethral fistula are and what the procedure that deals with it is. Also, if I do not have an exact date for when I first noticed the fistula since it isn t recent, will that create problems for the doctors? What can I do to help the situation for the mean time other than wait for my appointment day?

Hi Dr, I have been having problems with my spine and back, hip, and leg pain for the past six months with chronic pain. I went to a orthopaedic surgeon last week for a second opinion, but he could not find any reasons (from my xrays) why I would experience pain chronically. I then went to see a chiropractor who helped a lot, and the pain eventually went away, but short lived. It is slowly returning again. The chiropractor noticed that I have a number of anomalies over my spine and missing a pair of floating ribs (previously thought by first orthopeadic surgeon as having an extra vertebrae). There seems to be some kyphosis and possibly Scheuermann s, however they say it is not the reason for the pain. I used to give yoga classes, which I cannot do now anymore, and struggle to find a way to manage my pain, apart from the chiropractor s help, which is short lived. No-one can give me answers, and I keep on struggling with pain shifting around all over my back, hips, legs, knees, feet (more recently), arms and between the shoulder blades. I have severely decreased my medication intake as suggested by the dr (for the last month I have been taking Tramacet tds, and Celebrex 200mg bd to be able to continue working). It has only been a week and a half and I already feel like increasing the dosages again. I only take the medications at night at this time. I really want to know if I am going to struggle with this condition for the rest of my life, and if I will ever be able to do exercises such as yoga again. Thank you in advance.

i suffer from extreme bloatedness, suffer all day everyday with it. no matter what weight i am/was i always look heavily pregnant. i sometimes have severe pain on my left side during sex, the pain is in the area over my hip and is a very internal pain. i have alot of stress in my life and go through stages of depression very regularly. my diet isnt super but it isnt over bad either, i am quite sedentary as i have had chronic back pain since i was 17 or so, it makes running/exercising very difficult. thought it might be IBS but i dont suffer from constipation or diarrhea . any ideas as to what is wrong with me as i know it is not normal, thanks.
