Is this blood in the urine that you see, or is it microscopic?? What did your Dr say? I have had microscopic blood for over ten years. Went through all the tests then, had a TAH/BSO, 17 months ado, the blood is still there, this month I go to a uro/gyn specialist as I am still having problems from my hyst, and my GP said that the urine tests are showing high amounts of blood. I had an IVP in November, nothing showed, so now she wants me to have a cystopscopy. I'm NOT looking forward to that. So basically, if the blood is coming from your uterus and just showing when you pass urine, yes, it might leave, but in my case, it never has!
I too had blood in my urine test, but the doctor stated it was microscopic. This happened at two of my check-ups with my regular MD. He sent me for kidney xrays to ensure no trouble and it came back fine. Later in Sept, at the gyno I was diagnosed with fibroids. I was also experiencing bladder pain in the morning. I look at my urine now, and it is clear. Before the surgery it got worse when I started with the bladder pain because I remember my urine being alot darker looking. Get it checked.
I had a fibroid that grew outside of the uterine wall and caused a "kink" in my right ureter, thus, causing the urine flow to build up and stones developed in my kidney. I had 1+ blood in my urine for years. The stones were so small the IVP didn't pick them up for a long , long time. I guess they had to grow After my hyst. , I started passing them. That wasn't fun. The good news is that the pressure is gone Don't give up.... it took more then one IVP to see aything and... a lot of time.
The blood in my urine is not microscopic - it is quite obvious. When I first noticed it, I went to the doctors thinking that it was an infection - easily cured with an antibiotic. otion:
What a wake-up call- a fibroid! After many tests and x-rays, including a cystopscopy - my bladder and kidneys are fine but I have three tiny kidney stones - the urologist feels the stones are not the problem because of their size and they are still located on my kidneys. My ureters; however, are dilated from improper drainage - the urologist and the internal medicine doctor believes that the fibroid is applying pressure on my ureters which may be causing blood in my urine. But,... the gynecologist is skeptical
I have a joint appointment with the gynecologist and the internal medicine doctor this upcoming week - I'm hoping for answers.
I'm confused as why your urologist doesn't think the stones are causing the blood. I have one the size of a grain of salt that is still causing blood. My urologist says it's just sitting in my right kidney and causing irritation, thus ... the blood. Getting another opinion is a great idea
I'm confused too!!! My urologist suggested that the kidney stones are sooo itsy-bitsy that they should not be causing the blood in the urine.
While the urologist was performing a cystopscopy, he notice a large mass pushing against my bladder and dilated ureters. He feels that the fibroid is the culprit because it is applying too much pressure on my urinary system which may be causing improper drainage and blood in my urine.
Many thanks for your suggestion and advice, Danamarie
