Question: After the gym yesterday I had dark urine. I didn’t pay that much attention to it. I did drink a lot after peeing and then peed clear. I felt mostly fine, hr a bit higher than usual and a little chilled. Today, pee is normal but very sore, when moving. Is this likely doms and dehydration or should I be worried about rhabo?

Brief Answer:
It's better to get renal function, CPK, LDH and urinalysis done along

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to Healthcaremagic. Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible. First of all it's sad to know what you had been gone through lately.

Based on the history you have shared, yes possibility of rhabdo can't be ignored and must be screened with urinalysis, renal function test as well as CPK and LDH.

But other possibilities of gross hematuria or blood in urine must be worked up with ultrasound KUB and Xray KUB to rule out renal colic etc.

Drinking more water is advisable. Also using citrosoda XXXXXXX in water is better to help with burning. Wishing you a great health.

Hope this has answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask. Regards.

History: 55 yo female. Blood in urine July 2011 (Gross hematuria).No other symptoms (no frequent urination, no pain, no weight loss etc.)After consults with GP/CT Scan/referral to urologist (scoped) -confirmed presence of bladder tumor. TURBT 5 weeks ago. Pathology report singular low grade,non-invasive papillary urothelial carcinoma . Urologist pleased after surgery--said VERY superficial and recommended no chemo or further treatment other than periodic scoping (every 3 months). Recovery quick and uneventful.
A week ago, sudden frequent urges--followed by only few cc's of passed urine. After 6 hours of urinating 3/hour- passed blood. Called urologist --while waiting for response, saw my primary. Suggested possible UTI-prescribed antibiotics. Received call for urologist office next day -said they would like to see me immediately--but they said unfortunately--no openings for a week.( Am scheduled to see him tomorrow). They said prob NOT UTI--but did not specify what they thought issue might be
Antibiotics appeared to help after 24 hours. However, after 48 hours--it was clear that they were not helping. The it became VERY painful to urinate last 3 days). Less pain today. My question--what am I probably looking at here? Is this a recurrence (already?)? Is this a premature shedding of the surgical scar (5 weeks post surgery?). Why the significant pain with voiding? Is this a micro bleed?---If so, would they be able to cauterize it in an office visit (not in a surgery suite)?
Thank you for any advice you might have

I am a 62 year old male, i have had an ongoing UTI with a brief period of gross hematuria. A recent MRI shows an abnormal enhancement of the right collecting system especially involving the upper and lower pole addition there is an abnormal thickening of the right renal pelvis and proximal ureter. The suspicion is for either infiltrating transitional carcinoma or an inflammatory etiology. Other than frequent urination, no pain, no fever, no weight loss, just stress while i am waiting to clear the e-coli infection so that internal testing can proceed and diagnose the problem. I have a history of frequent stones and presently have 2 in my right kidney What is the likelyhood of a positive outcome
