I get blood clots in my urine roughly once a month.

Posted , 6 users are following.

About 18 months ago I had a TURP procedure, after I had to have the catheter in for a week at home.  All seemed well after that but sin then I have had regular clots roughly every 4 to 6 weeks.  Is this common and do I need to worry about it?.  I am 79 years old.

    Hi Peter,

    It is probably still the after-effects of the TURP; it took 15 months after my HoLEP for me to be free of some urine blood.

    However, this may be a sign of something more serious, so if I were you I'd get it checked out. Here in the UK it is now standard procedure for this to be tested for urological cancer if there is blood in the urine, especially in anyone over 50. But it may be something else too - kidney stones? etc

    I had a turp done 7 years ago, and I remember having blood clots months after the surgery. I would be urinating, then a blood clot, would discharge into the toilet. It would catch me by surprise. I don't think you have to worry about it.

    I had the same issue.  IMPORTANT:  Continue to drink lots of water!   In addition, I highly recommend taking serrapeptase.  I will reduce and or eliminate scar tissue.
