I am new to this site and want to share my recent experience with a punctured bladder. I recently had a cystoscopy biopsy under general anesthetic and a few days later was rushed to the hospital with severe abdominal pain and swelling. The CT discovered fluid leaking into the abdomen from an injury to the bladder. I was put on a foley catheter and given morphine for the pain. I stayed in the hospital for 4 days. Finally the swelling went down and the pain subsided and I am at home now wearing the foley catheter until next Monday. The doctor is hoping the bladder will heal itself. If I wear the catheter and give the bladder a rest, perhaps it will heal on its own and surgery can be avoided. On Monday, I will have a CT done to see whether or not my bladder is healed. If not, I guess surgery will be required. The good news in all of this is that the biopsy came back negative. The unfortunate news for me is that my bladder was injured in the process. I still have a questionable FISH test result and still no explanation for the hematuria but the biopsy is negative. I am trying to educate myself as much as possible in this matter, as it has been a surreal experience so far and I am still wading through and trying to understand medical terms and tests previously unknown to me. I appreciate being able to share it on this site. If anyone has had a similar experience and/or a bladder healing I would benefit from hearing your stories. Thank you for listening.
