I have a somewhat TMI question. I can’t find anything on Google about it so I figured I’d ask if anyone else has had this problem. I’ve had bladder and urinary tract pain for the last six months and I’m wondering if it’s related to the RNY or the loose skin I have from weight loss. I am a year and a half out from surgery so it’s not related to the catheter. I’m thinking it’s a loose skin issue. The majority of my loose skin is in my stomach, lower pelvis area, and upper inner thighs. Has anyone else had this problem?

Well the only correlation I can see is the skin tone has relaxed so it's all floppy and blobby and maybe your bladder muscles have also lost tone. As the King in the "King and I" said " Is A Puzzlement".

This seems odd to me. Even with loose skin in those areas your labia should be protecting your urethra from excess bacteria accumulating. It might be time to see a urologist if you haven't already.

I had a panilectomy to remove the extra skin. It was covered by the insurance cause I was getting rashes and lots of UTI’s and yeast infections. It seems weird because of where the extra skin is located but when they pull skin up and pull skin down and cut off the extra skin , it seemed to reduce the amount of UTi and yeast infections

I feel like that’s what’s causing it. Most of my loose skin is in my lower abdomen and inner thighs. What kind of procedure was it? How painful? I’m scared of plastics, I don’t know if I can handle the drains.

Have them test you for ecoli. I have a friend with recurring UTI and bladder and they discovered ecoli was causing it. They haven't figured out how she got ecoli.

The standard answer Medical personnel will give you is " FECAL SOILING" Now every little girl by the time she reaches Kindergarden age has been taught what direction to wipe and all your good sense and training does not leave you when you reach adulthood. xxx's

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
