I have ureter kidney
stents for 15 months. I have metastized prostate cancer, taking degarilex hormone treatment. Everything has been stable, psa about 2 and testosterone nil. Last stent replacement was four months ago. Had gastro Sunday 5th August with violent vomiting and diarrhoea which cleared up next day. Two days later noticed blood in urine
. Small amounts of urine, probably due to dehydration. Next day went to GP, only blood detectable was microscopic, no infection, no discomfort. Today noticed blood in urine with quite chunky clots. Still no discomfort or fever. Is it possible stent has dislodged due to violent vomiting. My urination has been as it was prior to gastro, frequent, smaller amounts during day, larger at night, good to reasonable flow. I am currently in remote location, four to five thousand kilometers from my urologist who I cannot contact until morning, in twelve hours time. Any advice. There is a small hospital nearby with limited facilities and certainly no urologist. Thanks
JA: Is the condition chronic, or acute?
Customer: not chronic, only this afternoon. Acute? I have only noticed this amount of blood and any clotting of blood in urine only after having stents inserted the first time, 15 months ago
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have had radiotherapy 12 to 15 months ago for prostate cancer. The caner spread to bones and has appeared to have diminished marginally since hormone treatment, commenced 15 months when kidneys failed due to ureter blockage. All has been fine
