My husband had a TURP 8/4/17 (in history below) but has not had any other surgery. Had second round of taxotere last week...next one in two weeks. He's had mild blood in urine since two days after first chemo. A few small clots. Onc says to keep an eye on it. He's away for business this week and just called saying he had a little drip of blood when trying to urinate and now cannot get a flow. We suspect a large clot blocking. His flow has been great since TURP. He has a call in to his doc. Has anyone had this without radiation or other surgery? Thank you!
