Greetings my friends, I'd like to read what do you think about my problem.
I had a bipolar TURP 15 months ago. The only problem with that was an urethral stricture 1 month after the surgery. I had an internal urethrotomy and everything has been ok since then.
But 2 weeks ago, after a digital rectal examination (DRE) for colon issues (doctor pressed really hard), I started to see small blood clots in my urine. They're really small (less than 1mm), and the urine looks transparent. I saw 2 o 3 during the day urinations, and the next day no more, but I started to see black scabs (really, really small too) and sometimes what it seemed to be some kind of tissue. It only lasted 3 days, but the next week it happened away, and this week too.
Most of the time my urine is clean, but from time to time I see these particles (red clots, rarely) black scabs more often). Sometimes I have to use cell phone's flash light to see the particles in the water (really, really small). The semen is clear by the way and sex starts a new cycle of clots/scabs.
Of course, I went to a urologist to be tested, and he ordered some exams. Urine analysis was perfect, except 1-5 red cells/field (I had clots, so I had to have hematuria, but it's less than expected). Blood work perfect. No bacterial infection. I had an Urography-CT and everything is normal, no cancer, no stones, so the doctor thinks that it's probably the prostate what is bleeding. I usually have to push hard to poo, so maybe that has damaged a blood vessel in the prostate. Because conavid-19 they're not doing cystoscopy here.
So that's all. He prescribed me dutasteride to take for a week, to stop the bleeding if it starts again.
I'd like to know what do you think, if the prostate, after a TURP, is more susceptible to bleeding, even 1 and half year later. I know you're not doctors, but it's useful to read other person's experiences. Sorry for my poor English.
Thank you very much for reading me.
