I have a prescription for bactrim for a previous uti I had and I've just taken one so far. I just started yesterday.

Not yet because my doctor just retired and I am between doctors.I recently had a cat scan with contrast and had an allergic reaction to it with itching to.

I am sorry about the kidney stones.

To answer your question, yes, one of the more common symptoms of kidney stones is blood in the urine. So the blood is likely due to the kidney stones. Hope that helps.
