Can adhesions cause blood in urine?

I am supposed to laparoscopic surgery this Friday for lysis of adhesions. After several days of worsening pain, which I had attributed to going off pain meds in preparation for surgery, I was surprised to see blood in my urine today and on the TP (TMI, I know!). It is definitely visible. I don't know if this is all part of the adhesion problem or if I have another problem now like a UTI or kidney stone. My hubby says to call the doctor (the GYN doing the surgery) or go to the ER, but I refuse to do either because I'm afraid it is nothing and I'll look like a big baby. Does anyone know if adhesions can cause blood in urine? Thanks.

I had blood in my urine and it was an infection. That is not to say that yours is an infection. I am with your husband... go to the ER or call your doctor. It is better to be safe then to risk your health. You are not being a baby but being smart. Hope all turns out to be okay.

Well, it stopped for a while. Now it's started again. I SO do not want to call my doctor's office. I do notice it increases with activity. Does that happen with an infection? I've only had one UTI in my adult life and I didn't even know I had it until a fluke urine dip turned it up. There definitely wasn't visible blood. I can't go today, so I guess I'll have to deal with it tomorrow if it is still happening.

I don't want to alarm anybody but I from now on I will not be afraid to call the doc or go to emerg if I am in pain or suspect something may not be quite right . I too didn't want to look like a baby but my hubby dragged me to emerg.

I had a UTI with blood and puss in my urine that wasn't visible to the eye.

I went to emerg or should I say I was dragged to emerg as at the three week mark I was just not getting better. I ended up staying 9 days after 8 tests and three specialists. It was determined I had a blood clot in the vein travelling to my right ovary aka Deep Vein Thrombosis.

I am not for a minute suggesting any of you have any such condition ... the message I am trying to get across is go with your gut! If you are not feeling yourself or if you suspect something is just not right go to the doc or to emerg. The worst that could happen is they send you home with everything okay.

I now have a condition whereby I have a nurse visit every day to give me injections 24 hours apart and I cannot walk outside my house for at least 4 weeks.

Please follow your gut and be careful and for goodness sakes call the doc or go to emerg!

Hugs,
Tracy

Mich,
I don't think I have heard of adhesions causing blood in the urine. You definetly need to call the doctor and let the doctor know about this. Even if you can't go to see the doctor, you surely have time to place a phone call.

I don't think adhesions are the problem. I would strongly suggest contacting your doctor and let him know what is going on. A quick dipstick test could offer some possible quick answers. A culture might offer more answers.

I had blood in my urine a couple times last year. When the dipstick and cultures were negative -- I had stopped bleeding before I could get into the doctor's office both times it happened -- I was referred to a urologist and eventually sent to an endometriosis and pelvic pain specialist. He suspected interstitial cystitis (IC) right off the bat. And he was right, confirmed by a cystoscopy with hydrodistention done while I was under anesthesia for my laparoscopy for endometriosis excision and lysis of adhesions. Possibly your surgeon could do a cystoscopy for you at the time of your surgery to see what might be going on if the problem is more than a UTI.

Other things to consider are granulation issues, vaginal dryness, endometriosis on your vaginal cuff or else where in the vagina, other bladder issues, etc. I hope you are doing better today but do let your doctor know what is going on as soon as possible! s

Can adhesions cause blood in urine?

Last year in May I was in a lot of pain and noted blood in the urine. I went to the ER ASAP. I too have adhesions and they cause many problems, but not blood in the urine.

It turned out I had a severe bladder infection and it was caused by the bacteria E. Coli. I was given the drug Levaquin for this problem. The infection cleared up but it left me with a chronic state of vaginitis, yeast infections, etc.

Go the the ER! Don't fool around with this please!

Well, I did find out the cause of the blood in the urine. Yesterday, 9 days postop from adhesion removal, I ended up in the ER with a ... kidney stone. So the kidney stone was the cause. Unfortunately, now I get to wait and see if it will pass.
