Title: Looking for a second opinion
Post by: tunnellight on January 17, 2019, 04:12:46 am
Hi Dr. Fishman,

My wife was diagnosed with urogenital tuberculosis in August 2018 and she has been taking TB drugs since then. Recently, she has had some recurring symptoms (cystitis: hematuria, dysuria, nocturia, urgency, frequency) and the doctors cannot determine the cause or willing to change the TB therapy, which is under WHO supervision. We have been to many local urologists who keep sending us to gynecologists, who in their turn send us back to urologists. We live in Uzbekistan. I'm trying to get my wife diagnosed and treated correctly as we have doubts about the diagnosis and treatment regimen done so far. I've been reading/watching about her disease on the Internet, where I came across your YT video on hematuria. Can you help us or know someone who could? She did CT urography scan in August 2018. I would be glad to share the link with you privately if you can take a look.

Regards,
Rovshan
