Hi there,

Thanks for your question. If I don't respond immediately, it is because I am either in the OR or traveling. I will get back to you ASAP.

Any odd smell that you may have to your urine typically indicates that you have a urinary tract infection, even if you don't have any other symptoms. You need to see your doctor for a urinalysis and a urine culture and you may need to be started on antibiotics for this. Hope this helps and please let me know if you have questions.
