I am sorry you have these medical issues including pain.
To answer your question, it would be helpful to know more about the complete blood count numbers, such as hemoglobin and hematocrit, platelets. What is the MCV number? Also differential percentages or numbers helpful.
Also creatinine and BUN and recent urinalysis numbers.

rbc 3.75 flag low
mcv 100.2 flag high
mch 34.1 flag high

lymphocyte 12.2 flag low
neutrophils# XXXXX flag high
anion gap 5.0 flag low
uric acid 2.3 flag low

blood 2- Jx (can't really read writing so don't know if Jx is right)
spec gravity 1.010
epithelial (says none or rare - can't read writing again)
clean catch - yes
other - 50% nymorphine or pline?? (can't read writing) I think this is related to the blood cells in the urine bc he said he could tell that half were coming from kidneys (under microscope) and other half were coming from below the kidneys.
The only value of concern in your blood test results is the MCV. This may be from a medication or a sign that your bone marrow is working overtime. All other values although flagged as abnormal are not far from the normal and would worry me only if they trend in the wrong direction.
Urine test is concerning for the blood, and the source(s) of that bleeding should be looked for. What is your doctor's plan to look for that?Thanks,
He mentioned a kidney biopsy. I guess he thinks I may have a kidney disorder. IGA something?? I've had the blood in the urine for 10+ years and have seen Urologists before that couldn't find a reason. The most recent one i saw is the one who referred me to a Nephrologist because he couldn't determine a cause - none of the others ever did. I do know in the beginning (1999) when blood started being detected it was trace amounts and I guess it's escalated over the years to moderate. I thought I'd ask because I'm not crazy about having a kidney biopsy.
