An odd prostatitis with blood in the urine

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hey guys!

I started having hematuria August 29th last year 2015.

It was painless no fever no infection neither bacteria found.

All the tests were negative.

CT scan was negative.

My prostate is healthy no tender and it does not hurt when I had prostate exam.

I did a Cytoscopy, it was a friable prostate and the bladder neck, it was the source of the bleeding.

My urologist put me on Cipro for 6 weeks.

First week was ok, no pain no discomfort no nothing.

Just little tingling in my penis that comes and goes.

After a week of treatment I had sex two times, the day after I was having blood in my urine for three weeks day and night 7 days a week 24 hours. That was BAD.

Sometimes I had an extreme pain in my lower left Bally and my left testiculs but as soon as I urinate those crazy big clots the pain goes away immediately.

So the 4th week of cipro everything cleaned up.

After that I was starting feeling discomfort and soreness. It comes and goes nothing very bad. But very annoying.

After 6 mounths the hematuria came back again.

I took bactrim but still having some clots... Little ones sometimes.

I'm gonna do Cytoscopy on the 23rd.

My doctor does not know what's going on.

Do you guys have experienced that?

Any thoughts?

I would appreciate that.

    Clots or just red urine? Did the doctor do a blood cytology test? Did he do imaging to look for stones. Both are fairly standard with hematuria and a negative cystoscophy. Could just be prostatitis but other things have to be ruled out. Be careful with long term Cipro even though some docs prescribe it like candy.  It's a fluoroquinolone and can cause among other things damage to your achilles tendon. Bactrim is a better choice. Did they do a culture? Was it negative.
