Blood in Urine
About one week ago (never happened before in my 52 years of age) I noted a faint, trace of blood in the toilet bowl. I brought a urine sample to my gynocologist; she sent in for testing and prescribed antibiotic. Results came back negative, Dr. took me off of antibiotic, and I have not seen trace of blood since. However, a urine sample brought to Dr. again divulged trace of red/white cells. Dr. thinks may be kidneystone (?) and prescribed Renal Cat-scan, but cost of $1,100 is prohibitive. I have no discomfort at all, or backpain and do not see blood in urine any longer. I will visit Dr. again in May 2007 for Mammiogram and thought I would bring in another sample for testing. Should I be worried and attempt to find money for Cat-scan and proceed immediately or is my "strategy" of waiting until next Dr. visit OK? Thank you, all.
