Abdominal pain, blood in urine. Anemia or sepsis?

Our son, 13 yrs of age, experienced right sided abdominal pain to the point of doubleing over for a couple of minutes. He said it was because he had to go poop. He pooped and felt better. An hour or two after that he experienced gross blood in his urine . It was bright red and looked as if was all blood and no urine. We took him for to urgent care . They took a urine sample. The next morning we went to the ER ( it was Saturday) A blood draw was done and a number of labs were performed. Most came back normal one they had not gotten back. We were to told to follow up with his pediatric physician. I feel nothing was answered. Do we need to worry about anemia , or sepsis?

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.

Severe abdominal pain with blood in the urine point's towards urinary tract problem. Perhaps this may be a case of renal stones. Passage of stones through the ureter can cause severe abdominal pain and the trauma results in bleeding.

This condition usually settles with good hydration.

I would be concerned if your son is persisting to have the pain and is still bleeding; test like ultrasound abdomen and urogram are entailed then.

Continue to hydrate him well with plenty of fluids. He should be alright in a few days.

Hope this helps.

All the best!!
