This urinalysis can be a sign of kidney disease. Can you tell me what medical problems you have and what medications you take?

I am a breast cancer survivor. Spread to lymphnodes. 2 years post chemo. I have ulcerative colitis. I take tamoxifen and 10mg celexa. Klonopin occasionally. My chemotherapy was (pardon my spelling) adrimycin/cytoxin follow by taxol/hercepton.

With your history of chemotherapy as well as ulcerative Clyde is, you are at high risk for having kidney stones. This could be the reason for the findings on your urinalysis test. You need to get into see a urologist and they need to do a CT scan to evaluate for stones and other possible causes of waiting. They will need to also take a look inside your bladder by cystoscopy to evaluate for any source of the bleeding inside the bladder. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.

Thank you! I am scheduled for an abdominal ultrasound tomorrow. Maybe that will show kidney stones. I will let you know. In addition I will set up an appointment with a urologist.
