Urinary Symptoms

Comments:

 I have signs of microscopic hematuria: abdominal pain, blood in urine, and frequent urination. Could overdosing on medication cause this? (My doctors never did lab work on me, until now).”

Answer:

No, medication cannot cause this.

You need to be evaluated by a urologist.

Urethral Catheter and Infections

Comments:

My father has been with a catheter for 3 years because of urinary difficulties. Doctor said that either they train the bladder again or he will be all his life with the catheter. He also has a strong infection receiving treatment for the second time for this condition. He does not live here in USA. Is it safa that he carries the catheter for this long?
Is that normal? to be with a catheter? what about the bladder training is that possible?”

Answer:

It’s possible he needs the catheter but it needs to be changed at least once a month. Antibiotics should only be given if he develops fevers.

Thank You,

The Urology Specialists
