Hello, My sister often feeling giddiness and her BP is slightly low, and we have taken to the doctor for treatment and she is recoverring, lately, we did urine test which said 10-12 pus cells and 2-4 epithelial cells seen/hpf. What is this mean? Please help.
after 10 years of gross hematuria, flank pain, and surgery to remove a tumor wrapped around my ureter, I have been diagnosed with alport syndrome. The flank pain is constant, I take 6 advil every 4 hours and that really doesn t help. Anything I can take that is not a narcotic?
My husband is 5-1/2 yrs post op prostacystectomy with as neobladder. He had severe infections post op and 3 occurrences of intestinal blockage but other than a few things, his ct scans have been ok. End of April he had hematuria with clots, this occurred 4-5 times - he also has increased BP for past 3 mos-high fatigue level, stab pains a few times in hips, ongoing back pain, and a fever over 100 on and off for 3 week. He couldn t be seen until Oct to which I said no - so Dr. Walker saw him after we waited 3 weeks, He was not the same person. Walker did a cystoscopy and UA -said all is fine. Never explains anything -like the 2 nodes in lung although no change: and Hilar nodes in prior ct scans. Matt had a CT scan 6 weeks ago - again we ve had to wait until tomorrow -another 5 weeks, The doctor can t even call? No report has been sent, His PCP isn t kept up to speed. I was an OR Tech and understand a lot and understand my husband may not want to know yet but I need to know all I can in order to stay strong to help him. This is all unfair in my mind. It seems there is more to be done to make sure its not recurrence which is SO highly common with invasive TCC - BCG was not an option and Matt has not had chemo. Something doesn t feel right, DO you agree with the doctor or should I ask for MRI or PETscan or IVP ?? Extensive labs? Matt has been prediabetic for 4 yrs. Has some placque buildup and has severe sleep apnea although in past month, his snoring nearly stopped. I don t know what to ask this cold surgeon - they have a way of making us feel like we are bothering them. Thank you so much. Carolyn Knott
My name is Brenda, 5'7" 180 lbs. I was diagnosed in 2004. Presented with only the left ear affected. Blood Work sent to Mayo Clinic, confirmed Anti Collagen II. In 2006 had some nasal issues from RP nothing since. I have had microscopic hematuria since 1999 ranging from 2+ to 6+, about 20 different urinalysis and never an infection. Occasionally protein 5+. Had a urine cytology in 2006, negative for malignant cells, had a cytology in Feb 2010, negative for malignant cells. Had cytology 3 weeks ago, atypical urothelial. Have had symptoms similar to Interstial Cystitis for 5 to 6 years. Seems to flare at different times. Good for months at a time. Currently in some type of flair. Urinating 15-20 times a day, lots of burning but urinalysis done on Monday just came. back with blood 3+, no infection. Had cystoscope in 2008 looked good no lesions but bladder was slightly inflamed. I have another cystoscope scheduled for July 18th. I am extremely nervous about the Atypical Urothelial cells but have some comfort that I am still here with hematuria for 12 years. Do you think the Atypical Cells could be caused by what appear to be symptoms of Interstial Cystitis, or do you think it is likely I have bladder cancer. I am going insane waiting. Only one urologist is our town of 20,000.00
