Blood and Blood Clot in urine 5 months after surgery, please enlighten me

This morning I had alot of blood and blood clot in my urine. What was strange is that this suddenly happened 5 months of blissful situation of my condition after my prostate surgery. In the last 5 months, there was no indication of whatever can cause this situation. No problems with my urination and any indication of blood. Today, I can still urinate very well despite the blood. No fever or of any pain condition. Just blood. Plese enlighten me.

Thanks

My symptoms include: A.)This symptom has been going on for a while now: 1) discomfort while urinating (for more than a year), and today this discomfort has reached a new plateau. B.)Newer symptoms: 1) more frequent urinating than my norm; As of 12 hours ago, the latest symptoms are: 1) blood or (blood clots?) in the urine; and 2) decreasing amount of urine being expelled from the body; and 3) more pronounced urgency; and 4) increasing amount of discomfort while urinating. (when I first noticed this latest symptom, it seemed like it was either clumped blood or maybe blood clots that were expelled while urinating because they did not disperse like liquid blood does when it hits water. Then it changed to liquified blood and with each successive urination, the amount of blood dispelled has dropped considerably.) I have felt extreme urgency to urinate at least 10 times since 6am this morning--- highly unusual for me. Medical conditions possibly related to this issue: I have had an ingroinal hernia since 2000, which resurfaced after it was originally repaired in 1984--- before they used mesh. I mention this because I usually have no difficulty pushing my intestine back through the intestinal wall by pressing on the hernia; however, today, it seems that it is causing me discomfort and it is much harder to push down on my hernia to return the intestine to it s rightful place behind the intestinal wall. There are 2 outside circumstances that might need to be considered: 1) I just completed 3 years of incarceration--- 27 months were in a state facility where I was raped by a male inmate 14 months ago; (no, I have not been checked for any sex-related illnesses since a year before the rape); 2) I have been keeping long hours and I rented a room in a house with 6 other roommates, so, as bathroom time had been scarce, I had been using plastic bottles as urinals for more than a month (without washing them out)-- so I wonder if I have contracted an infection? I am a very hygienic individual and the main reason for using the psuedo-urinals is that I had begun the frequent and urgent urination and I couldn t wait for a bathroom to open up, but, then, I became accustomed to using them and basically became lazy. 3.) I found out approximately a year ago that when I was a US Marine stationed at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, I was exposed to, showered, bathed, cooked with and consumed polluted water for a year. They are so concerned about the possible health problems that can be attributed to this that they even have made settlements available to be awarded to those exposed with medical problems. 4.) I sometimes suffer from gastrointestinal issues(GURD), from no explanation, and I used to take Zantac for it; 5.) I am bi-polar so I also take Depakote 500mg, 3 at bedtime and I suffer from allergies so I take 50 of Benadryl, twice a day. My email address is: YYYY@YYYY The

I started testosterone replacement therapy (due to hypogonadism) for low testosterone levels, taking 30 mg Fortesta gel each day. I also had prostate surgery 5yrs ago, and radiation for same 3 yrs ago, and good (zero) PSA s since then. I started the gel therapy about 3 1/2 wks ago, and have also been exercising somewhat vigorously recently. About 2 wks ago, I notice blood in my urine that went away same day...and again about 2 wks later, which also went away, although I noticed what appeared to be some clotting. Can testosterone replacement therapy cause this type of occurrence, or the excessive exercise, or both? I also finished 4wks of antibiotic for bronchitis about 2 months ago, not sure if that s relevant. All days otherwise urine has seemed normal.

I m an 80 yr. old male and have been on warfarin for years with no problems. P/T 2 days ago was 2.5. First and second urination today was bloody. Never had this problem before except as result of prostate cryosurgery in 2008, which was only temporary. Subsequent PSA tests were 0.05, 0.50 and 0.73. I m on no other presciption medications and very active (tennis). I take daily supplements of vitamin C, glucosamine w/msm, B-50 complex, and selenium. If it might be a factor, I did 3 hours of yard work yesterday, primarily involving pruning of rose bushes.

I have had a dull uncomfortable buring in my pelvis, thighs, perineium, and groin areas. it has been there for 3 weeks. It comes and goes and seems to be a little worse when sitting. No pain during urination and no discharge of any kind. I have been to my dr and urologist with a follow-up this week. They don t have an answer yet. prostate checks out fine. Also see a very dim purplish spot on head of penis that doesn t hurt. Seems to come and go. Wondering if it is because of checking myself numerous times during the day.
