    Thomas,

           It's perfectly normal to have some blood in your urine for a few days after the Rezum procedure. You didn't say when you had the procedure done. How many days has it been? Can you tell how much blood is in your urine? How are you able to urinate on your own after the procedure? Do you have a Foley catheter? Or are you self catheterizing? 

    It would also help if you could tell us your age, how long you've been having problems with BPH and what drugs you're taking. If you are taking ibuprofen for the pain, for example, it is an anticoagulant that will possibly interfere with your body's normal blood clotting mechanism.

    I'm the first patient that didn't have to a Cath left inside. My body can't tolerate caths. My Dr said I'm the first patient he's had in his entire carear. That didn't have a Cath. Left in. It's been 9 weeks since my surgery. And my major bleeding started this friday. For 3 days now I've been peeing blood. I don't take anything for pain.

    Thomas,

          I think you need to call your doctor's office first thing in the morning. Blood in the urine is normal in the first few days and possibly a couple of weeks after the procedure. But not now. It's been too long. This is not normal and needs to be investigated to determine what's happened. Don't wait another day.

      Thomas, my guess is that without the Foley to properly drain the dead tissues out earlier, they stayed in your bladder. Now that the healing has taken place, the channel opens up better, they start coming out. Hank
