Question: I'm having slight bleeding when I urinate and also light vaginal bleeding. I am also having slight abdominal pain. I had cervical cancer and had to have a complete hysterectomy 36 years ago in which they removed my uterus, 1 ovary and cervix. . I had radiation treatments for 3 months afterwards which they said would kill my other ovary. I have been taking hormones all these years. I'm a little frightened in regards to what this could be.

Brief Answer:
Urinary infection is the most common cause;

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through your concern.
It is a good news that there are no.vaginal.problems.
The most common cause should be an infection of the lower urinary tract ( hemorrhagic cystitis)especially if you have frequent urination and burning sensation during urination.
Otherwise upper urinary tract infection (pyelonepritis) or other pathologies ( pathologies of the urinary vesicle, a stone at the urinary tract, glomerular pathologies ect) should be excluded.
You need at first a simple urine test and culture of the urine to rule out infection than your treating physician will ask for further radiological examinations.
Hope the information will help.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta

It's not a UTI. I was tested for that.

Brief Answer:
Other pathologies need to be excluded in that scenario

Detailed Answer:
Welcome back!

Thanks for clarifying. If urinary tract infection is already excluded then a pathology of the urinary tract such as stone, vesical papilloma or glomerulonephritis should be excluded.

An ultrasound of the Kidney-ureter and, bladder along with further exams are needed along with the urological check-up in that scenario.

Please discuss with your doctor about these.

Best wishes,
Dr.Mirjeta

39 asian female, menses Nov 6-12, abdominal pain LLQ goes away when supine, tender to touch, no fever, ate (stupidly) at Burger King Mon evening. Onset next morning, vomiting. No diarrhea. Some bloating, + flatulence and last BM Monday. At Disney world for the week. Seem to walk ok, occasional cramping. Nothing that brings me to my knees. Back pain because I am walking in flip flops, perhaps? Have one day left (today) and headed home tomorrow morning. Warrant an ER visit? Pain tolerable with Motrin.

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?

Hi, i am writing on behalf of a friend. He had been diagnosed with having IBS when he was 13, without a colonoscopy, and now he is 25. He has been having abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation all these years but a month ago it suddenly got really worse (after having some fish, but even if it was bad, he had never experienced such excruciating pain again), as in one day he started to ache so much he couldn't get up off the floor. It was like stabbing and ripping him apart. He went to the hospital and had blood work done and an X-ray and they said it was normal but suggested a colonoscopy but he didn't go through with it. Ever since he has been having really severe abdominal pain and interchanges of diarrhea and constipation and he has been to several doctors, one prescribing him with amitriptyline and antibiotics for the intestine, and another after that giving him mebeverine hydrochloride alone. He took the antibiotics and amitriptyline for almost a month and it helped him a bit but in the evening he would none the less have the return of the severe pain in his entire abdomen, sometimes centering on the left upper side of it. Then he went to the other doctor who perscribed mebeverine hydrochloride, telling him it would instantly help, without that being the case when he tried it. He had extensive blood work done and everything was normal, no inflammation or anemia, and the doctor said he didn't need anything else and should just take the mebeverine. But he is still in pain and i was wondering if it could be something else with these symptoms. Should he have a colonoscopy or some other less painful test? He also has Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease.
