Brief Answer:
The urine is contaminated from the external urinary/genital ways.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your question.
I read it carefully, reviewed the report and I understand your concern.

It seems like the urine analyse is contaminated with the white blood cells from the external genital organ. The epithelial cells tell us that. Also the fact that the nitrites are negative it is an indication that it is not a urinary tract infection.

So, my recommendation is that the urine analyse should be repeated and the sample should be taken correctly - clean yourself well first, and take the middle part of the urine in the sterile container.
Make sure that the urine gets examined at least 30 min after it has been taken.

Continue to drink plenty of fluids.
If you start having fever, burning sensation in urination, urgency to urinate, low abdominal pain...then please feel free to follow up with me so I can suggest an antibiotic.

Hope this is clear. Let me know if you need more clarifications.

My husband is on tpn through a port for 3.5 weeks due to vomitting and other difficulties eating resulting from chemo (ended 4 weeks ago) and radiation(ended 3 weeks ago) for squamous cell carcinoma in base of tongue.

He has been having really bad night sweats lately and when not "flashing" he is really cold all the time. He is infusing the TPN during the day. He is not running a fever. Is it the tpn causing it? What can he do?

He isn't getting sleep he needs. Please advise
