  • Very importatn question for all IC patients

    Does anyone of you have white particles that look like small snowflakes after they pee? I have had them since the start. In addition, the last drops when I pee are white, the same thing you have when you have UTI? I have had these two symptoms since the whole thing started....I am looking forward to your responses.

    These particles can't be yeast because I have been tested for that from the start. I am pretty sure it is related with my condition since I had them from the start.

    You can search this is old posts, a lot of people have this, conscensis is it is the linning of your bladder being sluffed off.

    I get this when I flare, or get a UTI.

    My are with you all. May you all find a way to peace and joy in your lives.

        I used to have it but have been in a "medicinal" remission with Elmiron for about 1 1/2 years and no longer have the white stuff.

          I have often noticed his, not all the time but sometimes. I had no idea what it was. Has anyones doctor noticed this?

            I get little red pieces (looks like tissue to me), and sometimes black spots, and blood clots.

              Even a healthy bladder will occasionally shed some white particles. I don't have them all the time, but sometimes see them.

              Stay safe
