Flomax and blood in urine

Common Questions and Answers about Flomax and blood in urine


My Father, age 60, has just recently passed <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> his ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e. He's currently on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flomax</span> for an enlarged prostate and has been for a few years. He's very good about going to the doctor and getting all the check ups. When he passed the blood he described it as feeling like a "relief" and actually thought he may have passed a small kidney stone. No pain was associated with it at all and he hasn't passed blood since(about 1 week).
The urge frequency was sometimes unbearable!! Anyhow started on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flomax</span>, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> just one day noticed the frequency (6-8x day to 4x) and urgency diminished. If no BPH...how is the flomax working??? Thanks!
It just relaxes the smooth muscles of the urethra to aid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> smooth flow of the ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e. Though <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flomax</span> may lead to sexual dysfunction and retrograde ejaculation, the effects are unlikely to be permanent. Hope the information is helpful. Take care!
The daily recommended dose for normal supplementation (in the absence of deficiency) used to be 400 IU, but this dose has been found to be inadequate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> certain populations and regions and has been altered to 700 IU and up to 2000 IU can safely be taken daily. If you have been responding well to the current regimen you are on, there is no need to step-up the dose.
It is not a very complex procedure and expected side effects will be mild hematuria (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e ) and slight burning pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the area which should be reversible in 24 hours. Cystoscopy will also allow your physician to take tissue samples when indicated. Just think positive and keep a good attitude. You have been very proactive about this. Let us hope for good ,clean results. Keep us posted regarding your progress.
the first three were normal, and during the fourth i ejaculated blood and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> and a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> clot came out <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e. 4 days ago i was at a strip club and had a lap dance. i was aroused and had an erection. i went to the wc and a huge clot came out followed by blood an then another clot. this occured again during urination.
It is encouraging to know that you have stopped passing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e and are on the way to recovery. If the infection <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> your bladder was present over a long time, it will take some time for normal sensation to return. Meanwhile, do not wait for the urge to pass urine but void by the clock - every 3-4 hours. blood at the end of defecation is indicative of hemorrhoids. It could also explain the crampy abdominal pain you have.
However since you have a history of cancer, it would be wise to go back to your doctor once and rule out the possibility of bladder cancer, which too can result <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> clots <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e. Even other wise repeated injury to urethra is not good. I would sincerely advice you to consult your urologist ASAP. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Last week, however, I had ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e retention and had to go the the ER to get a catheter put <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>. Though I did have a UTI, my CT didnt show that I had any obstructions. The ER doctor suggested that I ask my urologist to see if I had a dropped bladder, which we will test for this Friday. I feel as if all of these things have got to be related, and am afraid that my doctors aren't piecing the puzzle together. Does anyone know of anything that may tie all these things together?
It is important to determine the presence of casts, protein and crystals <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e as this may suggest underlying urinary tract stones or kidney disease. Do keep us posted with regards to your progress.
Straining during urination, decrease <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e flow, dribbling of ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e, difficulty <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> ejaculation may suggest obstructive symptoms. A complete physical examination by a physician is needed to determine the cause. Are there any palpable mass in the groin or scrotum? A simple urinalysis may not be enough. Further tests that would visualize the structures may be requested.
I have had foamy ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e for about a year now. I went to my doctor and he did a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> workup and checked my urine. Everything came back normal. My PSA was fine, thyroid, liver, kidneys, cholesterol was 164 and my good and bad cholesterol were fine. My potassium level was 4.4 . He said everything was fine,but I still have real foamy urine. My doctor told me to drink more water, I'm drinking 8 glasses or more a day and I'm just urinating more with foamier urine. He said, everything was fine.
i went to the ER a little over a week ago and they said i had a kidney stone they gave me oxycodone and flomax then said to see a urologist in 5 days but i dont have the money to go, i haven't had pain in about 5 or 6 days until this morning when the pain was back in my testicle and a little <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my left side just not as bad as before. i had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e when i went to the ER but i couldn't see it but this morning it was bloody enough to see..
For the past year I have urine leakage/ some type of clear discharge also have this weird sensation as if something is being forced out of my penis- almost like a spasm- the tip of my penis is red and inflamed- gets worse after ejaculation- I get this intense itching feeling at the tip and also a pinching sensation- the redness comes and goes- one day its there and the next it's not- another symptom is a tingling/ cold burning sensation-I am not having this pain in my bladder- the feeling is
The blood clots come and go have seemed more old darker <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> recently and ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e varies between cloudy and clear. I seem to be passing urine more freely but it seems I have had near crisis after passing larger clots. Has anyone had a similar experience?
Two years ago I did a Cystoscopy and last year flow measurement test (Not Urodynamics) and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> test for any cancer and prostate issues. They found nothing. Again I went to a different doctor thinking to find the cause of this last week. He wanted me to do the Cystoscopy again and UroDynatics test. My question is is it necessary to perform a cystoscopy again since they did not find any issues when performed last. This test makes me nervous since I suffer for months after this.
I did go to an ED doctor and he said my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> flow was just about normal. Doppler test. But then why the dysfunction. flomax was of little help. Seemed to acutally make it worse. Do you think prostate massages would help?
hard to urinate and burning and feels like something gets stuck <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e tract and lots of pressure and going alot.testicals are red and swelled especially around the sides.have signs of infection.protein was 300 in urine.muscle spasms in rectum and behind penis.also rectum swells or pokes out around rectum and is very painful.but goes back after few mins after bowel movement also lots of pressure.had fissure/inner hem.
I saw my GP and had ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e test which showed no <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span>, bacteria etc. I had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> test done and white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> cell count was normal. I then had digital rectal exam and it was normal.. The Dr. stated that this would have been very painful if the prostate had been infected. The Dr. stated prostate felt fine with no nodules. The prostate was however, enlarged. The Dr. ruled out prostatis and diagnosed as enlarged prostate. The PSA test has not returned yet.
That was two weeks ago, and my pain in my bladder and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e have only just stopped. I alerted my Dr's office several times and they told me to just hold out - that it should pass. It took two weeks, but it has finally dissapeared. Good luck to you!
Hello, Male 41: I have a pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my prostate aera, right epididymis, weak ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e stream and a weak erection that started a year ago and will not go away! I've had Prostate exams, 3 Cystoscops, PSA blood work, Flow Analyzer, Urine test, Ultrasound, CT scan. ALL NEGATIVE RESULTS I have taken, Tobramycin, Cipro, Bacclofen, Levaquin, Doxycycline, flomax, Uroxatrol and Terazosin(this really helps with the weak urine stream) and take lots of Advil. NOTHinG HAS SHOW RESULTS EXCEPT FOR Terazosin.
I will have my next cystoscopy and review <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> March 2010. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my case it will be a big and complicated surgery. From all that I have read, I most likely will have a temporary colostomy as well. (someting that I dread) Even though prostate surgery has changed, urologist will often use alternative treatments prior to using surgery. I can somehow understand as to why this approach is used.
The results of those tests show 2 small stones <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the lt. kidney approx. 4mm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> size located <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the lower pole of the kidney <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the pappilae and a 5 mm stone in the right kidney, no obstruction was seen. My urologist does not feel that the kidney stones that I have in the left kidney are the cause of my pain, so I am stumped because the pain seems to be similar to the pain that I had in the past just prior to having the lithotripsy done.
The urge is worse when I'm sitting down, and usually if I get up and walk around I feel better. I went to the doctor about a week ago and had some blood work done. All of the results for STDs, and a UTI came back negative. I'm currently taking Cipro but it doesn't seem to help. My physician said that it might be "nospecific urethritis" and would prescribe Doxycycline. From what I have read about post void drip, there doesn't seem to be any resolution.
Some doctors mis-identify NGU in men as UTIs- the fact is the UTIs are VERY rare in men under age 40 and most men who have “evidence” of UTIs actually have UTIs which is manifest as the presence of white <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> cells <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> a ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e specimen. The process typically gets better with azithromycin and rarely, if ever, leads to complications. Sometimes it takes a few days following therapy for the symptoms to resolve. Stop squeezing these "bumps".
have had obvious <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e for just over a year now, tests revealed nothing till a month or two ago. Found a stone lodged in right kidney. Last Tues. night ended up in ER. Seems like stone finally decided to migrate south into the ureter but not out into the bladder yet. Not sure if I'll know when it passes. Was put on flomax to ease things along. But still having loads of blood in urine. Wondering if I'll know when it goes and when I can stop the flomax.
The capsule itself will detach from my esophagus <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 5-7 days and exit my body via my digestive system. The unit is made by Medtronics, the same group that makes a popular brand of pacemakers and other medical devices. This procedure is scheduled for next Thursday afternoon. in the meantime he has restarted me on Prevacid and wants me to continue the acid reflux diet I have been following since March (no coffee, no caffeine, no chocolate, no juices, etc.).
Kidney stones are a possible for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e and back pain. A helical CT can be considered to rule this out, and I would obtain this test. If negative, a cystoscopy can be considered to look for bladder masses or cancer that can lead to blood. If the kidneys and other urological causes have been ruled out, you can pursue an orthopedic option which may include an MRI of the back. These options can be discussed with your personal physician, or in consultation with a urologist.
I had blood work (PSA negative), ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e(normal), and testosterone(average). I was put on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>flomax</span>. Ur<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>e problems better now, but ejaculations continue to hurt. The longer I go between them, the more they hurt. Because of the flomax, my semen quantity was at first reduced, but the last 4 or 5 ejaculates have contained more and more gel-like beads, that resemble tapioca or slightly rounded pieces of rice.
