Hi
Welcome to XXXXXXX
At your age, cancer is the first diagnosis.
If the blood is persistent, rush to ER.
Otherwise, if you can manage to get an appointment to see a urologist in a week, it is ok.

Hi!. I'm having some difficulties in the procedure called Irrigating cystoclysis...I found the answers but I can't reason out why..

-to restore or maintain the patency of the bladder
•     to prevent formation of calcific deposits in and around the indwelling catheter
•     to relieve bladder spasm
•     to drain the bladder when acute urinary retention is present
•     to irrigate bladder with a medication to treat an infection or local bladder irritation

why is it cystoclysis is indicated for post genito-urinary surgery, urinary tract infection and also in prostatic hematuria?..

Alright, I'm 14 years old, 5'9 and 146 lbs. I'm having a horrible stinging pain when I urinate (really, I have to resist the urge to scream) and I apparently have gross hematuria. I just got off my period, but I don't think that has anything to do with it. A previous test before (I forget what it was called; they slipped a camera up into my bladder) showed that I have benevolent spots all over the inside of my bladder. (They looked like chicken pox.) Do you think the spots have to do with what's going on? What could I have?
