    I'm not the only one!!!! Yippee


    Ha Ha
    I thought it was little tiny pieces of toilet paper. And I thought to myself, why do I keep seeing these little pieces of papers that I never noticed before before.

    Everyone, IC or not, will at times have those floaters in urine. Most people with healthy bladders don't pay any attention to their urine so it goes unnoticed. I see them sometimes too.

    I see those in my urine too. And I believe I read the same post as you about it being flakes from the bladder lining and that it can be common with IC. I'm not a uro though so I can't say for sure. I just wanted to let you know I have them too.

    Floaty bits in urine

    I pretty regularly get floaty white bits in my urine.

    Pharmacologist happened to want to do a drug-urine test on me a week or so ago, noticed it was a bit cloudy and asked if I wanted it tested for UTI... it came back negative so from that I know the floaty bits aren't from UTI.

    There's no visible blood that I can see, and they aren't worm-looking (ick). Varying sizes, look like bits of tissue/skin/flesh maybe?

    Somewhere in one of the forums here I read a response that someone said this is typical of IC. If it is, what are the floaty bits? Ripped off tissue from bladder lining? Anyone have a guess on what might cause the ripping-off?

    Just curious if this is a common experience, or if anyone with a more helpful urologist might have been offered more info about it.
Working...
