Brief Answer: Hematuria Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query It looks like you are suffering from hematuria ( blood in urine) and it is due the bladder varices. Here is what I suggest to you 1. There is no medications you could use to effectively cure this, however beta blockers have been tried along with flavenoids. Please approach your physician with this suggestion 2. Effective treatment would be to approach a urologist for sclerotherpay of the varices. This should stop the bleeding 3. Usually portal hypertension should be ruled out by doing an ultrasound scan of the abdomen, I am sure it has already been done in your case I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me I wish you good health Regards

My husband has portal vein thrombosis with portal hypertension. Due to an increase in his propranolol to 80mg he has not had a bleeding episode in over 18 mo. He suffers from ascites and this past November he developed blood clots in each leg. His gastro specialist got him in with a hematologist who started him on lovinox injections once per day of 100 mg. His blood labs reflect that his liver is working well, although a biopsy reflects some stenosis. Should he be seen by a vascular expert?
