Not diagnosed yet, but a question or two

12 years 5 months ago #3503 by NH_Male
No, Pat, although I tried. The thing is, this happened in a urinal in the men's room on campus. I am a college professor, happened to be in the library when I had to go, went, saw the thing in my urine and then started trying to fish it out.

So there I was in a public urinal in the library on campus where I teach trying to fish out a tiny spec. I thought that if one of my students, hell, any student walked in, I would make the school paper, the authorities would be called, and I would be on You Tube... so I stopped.

Anyway, my Uro changed the appt to Thursday evening with a meeting on Monday first thing. So I have to wait over the weekend.

In any case tonight a new symptom showed up: Lower left back pain and soreness, with a huge feeling of nausea. At this point, at the risk of self-diagnosing, it seems to have taken a turn towards a stone. Won't know for sure till later this week.

I had that same thing a couple time with my last round of BCG interferon combo. I am not sure what it is. My urine during the last 4 treatment I was going to get 6 but stoped, was very clody with lots of residue tisue. It would float in urine then setle to the botom and then be claer. Yes you are rite I was fasinated with my urine, call it opsest. I admit it. I measured I looked inspected daily. Don

Hanging in there!

So I have urinated 3 times in the span of an hour this morning and this last time, a small red dot came out that was wrapped in what looked like some tissue. I passed clots last week and am very familiar with those, but this red thing was definitely strange.

Any ideas?

Feels like my life is a soap opera being played out in a message board.

Thanks again Pat for your encouragement. I hope its a stone too! Well, I hope its nothing but I'll take a stone over you-know-what any day.

After some pleading by me and my spouse, the Uro has pulled some strings and got me a last minute appointment tomorrow evening for a CT. He seemed concerned more about the residual pain than anything else.

So, fingers crossed. Maybe I'll be able to get sleep finally.

The only way I can describe the ongoing sensation in my lower abdomen is sometimes a feeling of fullness, like gas pain, other times it feels tender, and other times it feels like there is pressure on it. I no longer have nausea or heartburn.

We'll see...

Thanks to everyone for all the advice. I hate life's curveballs!

Ok got to differ with you on the CT scan...a lot depends on the radiologist who reads it...all radiologists are not created equal!.......Anyway a stone would show up...especially one thats presenting so much pain. I had one tiny little flat tumor barely recognizable with the uro when he went in and it showed up....what also showed up was a huge clot of blood which i hadn't passed yet...but did the following day...about the size of my fist. I agree with Rosie on going to a University based hospital.
And most of us do not have a history of cancer...i didn't........and a lot of people in their 20's have had bladder cancer. My bet is still on a stone!.......Pat
