Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.

As per your description, such blood in urine can be caused due to infections, inflammation, stones or growths anywhere in the urethra, bladder or kidneys.

As you have started Cipro so you should continue it.

Also, maintain a good hydration with plenty of fluids, Gatorade.

You should take OTC Pyridium tablets and cranberry juice.

If you feel dizziness, severe fatigue with blood in urine then this must be evaluated by a urologist.

The evaluation includes a urine culture, a urine cell test called a cytology, as well as a Ct scan of the kidneys ( or a sonogram) and a cystoscopy, where the urologist looks in the bladder.

As you are experiencing blood clots now so possibly bleeding starts to stop.

In case of profuse bleeding then visit the emergency room.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
