Back from Ultra sound
I was surprised that after emptying my bladder I retained 286 cc of urine. My Urologist last time I was that high diagnosed me with MS. Neurologist said no MS.
Now I am learning you can have bladder problem with Lupus. Lupus nepatis (sp) which will cause you retained urine. Twenty minutes later I was asked to empty my bladder again. Even after emptying my bladder the 2nd time I still retained 165 cc.
My Urologist said that if I continually retained over 100 cc to self catharize myself. I really don't want to do this but I am getting more UTI infections. So I guess I am back to self catharizing myself, no fun.
Yesterday I had 40 blood test done (9 tubes of blood were taken). Today the ultra sound showed urine retention, and I have kidney problems. What else it showed I am not sure.
My face, hands, are continuing to swell. Like I told my doctor I am also in lots of pain like 365 days of year 24/7.
Hoping for answers soon. I am going back to see my doctor October 31, not soon enough for these answers.
