Went to uro last week, he said there is blood in my urine sample. Its a small amount that doesn't even effect urine color. My questions are
1) I assume they used a dip stick to find the urine. I've tried to purchase these on Amazon but all their dip sticks are for multiple tests like protein, ketones, etc. Does any one know where I can buy dip sticks that are for blood in urine only? Do they even exist?
2) This question is a little more specialized I know sometimes the blood is so dilute that they examine the urine under a microscope. Since I have access to a microscope is there any special prep done to sample to see the blood on a microscope? Just use a slide or petri dish? Any special light filters? Magnification?
The uro did not see any cancer cells in the sample but wants to scope me to be sure bladder is in good shape. I've had a cystoscopy before. It wasn't too bad but I had pain for a few months afterward that my uros ignored. I think I got an infection from it. I had sex the day before my urine test. I'm wondering if that my have trigger minor bleeding. I also have 2 cysts on my kidneys maybe their bleeding. Otherwise I pee very good 20ml/sec. I really hate the thought of ending up with an infection and going backwards in my progress.Especially sine last time they ignored my concerns over burning urination, and a painful prostate making it difficult to drive. BTW this is a new uro he isn't the one that ignored my pain.
