History of prostate removal. Blood in urine. Drank seltzer water

I had my prostate removed robotically in November of 2012. I had very little bleeding and urine flow is under control ie, no leakage. Yesterday I had a normal day except I had a can of seltzer water late in the day. When I urinated before going to bed I thought a piece of lint from my shorts had fallen into the toilet and didn t think much of it. This morning when I urinated there was alot of blood . Today it has been off and on relative to blood in my urine. I have not seen blood since the catheder was removed 2 weeks after surgery. For some reason I feel the seltzer water had something to do with it but I m still passing blood sometimes heavier that others.

Thanks for posting your query.
As you had blood in urine it is possible that it can be due Urinary Tract Infection, However bladder stone should also be ruled out. You should take plenty of water. cranberry juice can help you.
You should visit your doctor for physical examination and get labs like urinalysis, urine culture, CBC and ultrasound. Afterwards you can be managed properly.
Hope it helps.
Take Care!
