Yesterday morning I noticed my pee was pink...yay! No other urinary symptoms. I am currently recovering (slowly) from a sinus/chest infection and the antibiotics in combination with G have caused some pretty frequent bathroom activities but not in the urine department.
We did my regular bloods as well as a urine test and ultrasound (kidneys, bladder & urethra). Everything was normal except, not surprisingly there were a heap of RBCs in my urine (just usual no. of WBCs so no infection). The RBC in the urine were not damaged indicating (apparently) that there is no inflammation of the kidney. The blood tests showed my highest platelet count since diagnosis - 184.
I had pink tending to dark red pee all yesterday but this morning back to normal. They are going to send me to a urologist just to be sure...apparently he will take another look at the bladder which sounds like fun but basically my hem did a shrug maybe it's a G thing. Well has anybody here had a similar experience while taking glivec or any of the other TKIs?
I have had a similar experience but with much less blood after running a half marathon...I can only wish I felt well enough to run a half yesterday morning but sadly this was not the cause.
