Urologist Speaks on Common Diagnoses April 15

Dr. Kathryn Sullivan, urologist

UrologistKathryn Sullivan, M.D., will host a lecture at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 15 in FauquierHospital’s Sycamore Room. The subject for her talk will be “Diagnosing and Treating Urology Symptoms.”

A urologist can help you address hematuria (blood in the urine), urinary incontinence and overactive bladder, as well as bladder, prostate and kidney cancers.” Dr. Sullivan, with Fauquier Health Urology, will go over the signs and symptoms of urological disorders, along with treatment options.

A FREE prostate-specific antigen (PSA) screening will be available after the lecture. Register by calling 540-316-3588 or going to

I am paralyzed from the waist down. For years, I have used a catheter and everything has seemed fine in that regard. Lately, I have been having massive pains in my lower belly and bladder area. My urine doesn't smell, nor is it discolored. Is there anything else besides a bladder infection that could be wrong?

I think that this is too complex a situation to respond to here. A think an appointment with your doctor is called for here. Pain is a signal that something is not right. Good luck.
