Question: hello! a couple of weeks ago I went to the doctor with high blood pressure
, the nurse took a urine sample and discovered there was blood in the urine. A week later, the doctor took another sample and there was still blood, he also tested it for infection but couldn't get anything to grow. A week after that I had a blood test
, which was testing for FBC, HbA1C, LFT, U and E, eGFR and thyroid
function. a few weeks after that they gave me an appointment to see the urologist
on February 25th. I also phoned up about my blood test and they said everything came back as normal. I was born with one kidney
on the left side, the other was covered in cysts and died I think. Also over the past year or so, I've had a slight pressure in my back on the left side, it's not painful and it only happens rarely. Since my scan is 2 months away, I was hoping you could make me feel better about what else it could be, I'm just worried in case it's something serious. Thank you.
