Kidney infection, blood in urine not the cause?
Good afternoon everyone.
I'm on a few hours sleep as I waited 8 hrs to be seen in the ER, isn't that ridiculous! Only to be back there two hours. Anyhow I've been having blood in urine for a few weeks now and I've been seeing a Urologist to rule out Cancer. Yesterday though the bleeding was very different, It was bright red as if I had cut myself and my bladder was hurting really bad. My hubby decided we should go to the ER and not wait until the 26 for the systhoscopy. The Ct scan I had last week revealed that I have lesions on my left kidney which will require more testing to see what they are. Now I'm starting to worry.
In the ER, the Dr's told me that the blood was not being caused by my kidney infection which caused some confusion and fear, and that I should continue to see my urologist for further testing, but testing did confirm that I have a kidney infection.
I came in to work on a few hours sleep because I want to save my time but I can't think straight. I'm soooo tired and in so much pain.
Please keep me in your prayers, I'm really scared of my kidneys being affected by this monster.
