Were you treated with antibiotics? Which one? Did they do a urine culture to identify the bacteria?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I took bactrim and cleared up infection. After that they said I did not show infection. But did have little blood in my urine.

Blood in the urine can be an indication of a urine infection, prostate cancer, kidney stones, or tumors of the kidneys, ureters, or bladder. Recurrent infections can be caused by stones or tumors. This is why it is important to get in to see a urologist to have a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis done and cystoscopy to rule out the stones and cancerous causes. While the cancerous causes are not likely, they should not be missed and this is why this evaluation is very important. Hope this helps and please let me know if you have questions.

Don't have blood on urine just now just pinching sometimes when I pee and hurts when I drink caffeine. .plus get up at least 3 times to go at night! Sometimes more?
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 2 years ago.

These sound like signs of either overactive bladder or cystitis. You need to see a urologist to do cystoscopy to evaluate for cystitis. They can start you on oxybutynin to se if this stops bladder spasms.

MRI is no good for this. You need a CT scan. Unfortunately, I don't know any urologists in your area

If have to take meds for how long?

Everyone differs in that. Some people have to be on it for life but some can come off after a year or so
