Happy New Year, everyone!
I'm seeing a urologist for a consult next week for hematuria, in my case, microscopic blood in urine. Over the past 2-3 years I've had about 5 UTIs that have been treated sucessfully with antibiotics. (Majority were E. coli for which I thank lovely side effect from Sprycel.)
In October while I was vacation I developed the mother of a UTI, frank blood in urine which I have never had, urine looked really disgusting. Treated with Keflex. Never really felt back to normal. Found bacteria in urine right before Thanksgiving, treated with bactrim. Until this last one I've never had a post treatment urinalysis to see if it was totally cleared. The 1st showed no bacteria but "small blood" (that's what the report said and I'm not sure if that refers to amount, size of cells, etc - I forgot to ask) as did the second, 2 weeks later.
One of the side effects noted for Sprycel is hematuria so I could have had this all along but never knew it since this is first post UTI analysis I've had done. Never the less need to have this checked out.
Just wondering if anyone else has had experience with this or words of wisdom?
