Nothing to be worried about .

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for query .
Presence of occult blood and 4-10 RBC detected on microscopic examination of urine signify mild UTI especially Cystitis which is very common in females at peri menopausal age .

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Do you have any urinary symptoms like frequency ,burning ,urgency etc suggesting UTI ?

I shall suggest you to get urine culture done to rule out infection .

In the mean while take urinary antiseptic like Nitrofurantoin and Norfloxacin twice daily for a week along with urine alkalizer thrice daily .

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions ,I shall be happy to help you
Thanks and Regards.

Pain in lower back with few RBC in urine can be due to presence of stone either in kidney or ureter and has to be ruled out by Ultrasound Scanning of abdomen .

Dr, I am lax from india. My cousin is 50 years old male and he has been taking tablet for blood pressure for last 10 years and he is doing light duty job only. Six month before he was taken treatment for urinary stone in the hospital and with iv medicine it was cleared off. Then some time he was feeling pain and that was tollerable. so he was taking tablet and its gone.

Recenetly 5 days before my cousin was having pain in the back side and he was not able to pass urine. So he was admitted in the hospital nearby his home. Then there they took scan for checking any stone and tested the urea level. They they said urea level is very high. He was given medicine thro iv to reduce the uric acid level. but it was not reducing and become high. So he was shifted to another hospital to check with nephrologist. There they took scan,other test and they found no stones. They said one kidney is seems in shrinkage condition. after went this hospital he can able to pass urine. They gave medicine thro' iv to reduce the uric level for the last 2days, but the level of the uric become increase around 160 and the creatine leve they found around 10. So yesterday they said, first to reduce the high amount of uric level , he has to go for dialysis . Then they made dialysis (hemo) for him 2 cycle ( 2 hrs + 4 hrs) . Now he has been moved to ward from ICU and Dr. asked to give him light food like liquid type.

My question is , whether this decesion taken for dialysis is correct or not ?

Also this dialysis process is required for him upto when and whether it is required to continue further also or not. pl. reply in detail.



Thanks

Today when I thought I needed to pee a blood clot dropped in the toilet. I didn t pee, though. It was just the clot. I have done this twice since the first time today. Its like a burning urge and then when I go to use the bathroom the urge passes and the clot comes through. I also feel nauseated with pain in my right lower abdomen. I have body aches all over me and I feel weak. I have been sexually active for the past four days. I have had a past of cysts on my left ovary. What is this?
