Hi
You should get an ultrasound to rule out renal stones/mass.Get another urine microscopy done.Hematuria/bllod in urine is a bad sign.You need to see a urologist about a detailed history and tests immediately.

hi,
welcome to healthcare magic
haematuria may be due to so many reasons eg.renal stones/tumers,urinary tract infection with virses,STDS(sexualy transmitted diseases.you have to do a urine microscopy(if white blood tests are seen along with red blood cells then it is more favour of UTI ),ultra sound scan to rule out renal stones/tumors

I have recently been put on antibiotics to treat what my doctor thinks is a urinary tract infection . My body has been reacting negatively to the medicine with inflammation that now I can barely walk. I went back today and she told me to stop taking the antibiotic. They are planning on running another culture of my urine as it is still showing signs of infection ( blood and white blood cells as well as small bacteria). I am concerned that it may be my kidneys. I have had this problem before as a severe reaction to different medication last year in which I have never fully recovered. Still dealing with inflammation throughout my body from that experience too. What do you think I should do now?

Hi, I had a urine test done and was told I have UTI. I toke CIPRO for 5 days and there was no improvement. So my doctor gave me CIPRO for another 5 days, he thinks maybe the infection has gone to my Kidney. I have to more days left of CIPRO and one of the symptons that I am concerned about is my period. Originally I went in to see my doctor because I have blood in my urine. When it first started I thought it was my period, it s been 6 weeks and I still have blood in my urine. My doctor that diagnosed me with UTI and thats when I started taking the CIPRO. The blood is not heavy it comes and goes throughout the day. Any idea what it could be?

Hi Doctor, My 14 month old daughter is diagnosed with Urinary tract infection.The infection has reached to a critical stage by the time we came to know about it WBC 100, RBC =5-7 with bacteria E.Coli.Then she was admitted and was given IV for three days. After 3 days she was put on an oral anitbiotic Orfloxin Since the infection was under control i.e. WBC = 20-25 but she didnt respond well to that anti. and within a week the WBC again went to around 50. She was then given Amicacyn injections for seven days. With these injections WBC count has come to normal but showd an increasing trend i.e. from 3-5 to 5-7 in last day of injection. So she has been put on Amoxylin. We consulted on more doctor and he prescribed Taxim for her. So I just want to know which to follow and is this an indication towards VUR or just that infection is chronic and hence taking a long time to vanish? Please help
