Welcome to Just Answer.
Did she prescribed any medicine?
no - she mentioned the possibility of antibiotics if it turned out to be an infection tho she siad there was no sign of infection in urine ( as did the walk in doctor who I saw at weekend).
Did you have any other test?
no - it was a short appointment where you just srop in to see the doctor
Blood in urine can come from different causes.
Stone is a cause for it.
Infection is also a common cause.
In infection there can be other signs like presence of pus cells, casts in urine.
Do you have fever?
no - i was a bit hot and cold last week but this has passed; i feel slightly breathless on exerting myself but this is not pronounced.
You can now have a repeat urine test, ultrasound examination of abdomen.
If there is a stone, it can show up in ultrasound.
The doctor can send you for the tests.
Just to check whenis a reasonable time to coem back as in she said to me to wait until it settles down and then come back to do a urine test again to check it s clear ... but I m not sure how long I leave it until coming back again; if I come back within a few days is that too soon as in I dont want to waste her time by coming back too soon but on the other hand it feels like time is passing when I could be getting referred for an ultra sound?
As you are in pain, you need not to wait.
I would advise to follow it up with doctor.
Please feel free to ask, if you have any further query.
thanks - last question : she says she is going to have her gall bladder removed this week ( she was just making conversation ) so there will be a locum as she is one person practice. Can a locum kick off a referral or does he have to wait for her to come back to get the ok.
A locum can also refer you if you have symptoms.
You need to take an examination by locum doctor.
If you have any further query, please feel free to ask.
