Hi all, I am 60 this month, I went for a check up with the nurse as I was a new patient.
On the dip stick test, she said there was blood in my urine, and that it is most likely a UTI infection?
She asked me about discomfort or pain or about me not feeling well, I told her I feel the same as always, that I don’t feel pain or anything, she seemed to think I should be having discomfort when going for a pee? but I wasnt.
I was going away so I was prescribed a 3 day course of AB I never take meds if I can help it. After the meds I just felt the same as prior to the meds.
I have got to go back with a second urine sample, which I intend to do this week.
Would they have sent my first sample off for a diagnosis? and if there was a problem would they have contacted me?
It’s a month since the blood was found in my urine, and since I had the course of AB.
I have not deterred going back with my fresh urine sample, I was away for 2 weeks and as I am a carer for 2 I finally have a slot to take a sample to the doctors this week.
Surely if there was a problem they would of contacted me? But I also realised it needs to be rechecked to see if it’s cleared up, I am really worried that it may have been untreated for a long time and if it could spread to my stomach which is always bloated when I drink or eat, any opinions greatly appreciated xxx
