Clots in urine....help

6 years 8 months ago #41571 by mmc
By the way...the clots typically don't look hard. More like globs. Urinary retention can be due to many things. It may be one symptom of floppy bladder but it is not necessarily indicative of floppy bladder either.

That is great news! Stay on him/her if you don't hear something within a couple of days, and if your referral appointment is a ways off, call and get on their cancellation list. I know you are worried and need some answers as quickly as possible.

Please come back and let us know what you find out. We are here to answer any questions along the way.

Best wishes... Catherine

Yay!! Glad you got that referral. That's the first step. Hopefully, it is not bladder cancer, but it is clearly better to rule it out and get figured out what it is.

Good luck!

Just want to thank everyone for your feedback! I spoke with my PCP who will be referring me to a urologist. I will also make sure it is one who is knowledgeable on women's issues.

Still bleeding. In retrospect, upon looking at pictures of clots in urine, not sure if they are clots, as they don't look hard. Sometimes it is dripping blood, and other times it looks like stringy tissue but the strange thing is, it is maple syrupy in consistency and sometimes doesn't blend with rest of urine. In any case, I will have it checked out. The hardest thing of all of this to handle is looking at the toilet each time....each time it is a traumatic experience. I don't know how to cope with seeing blood that won't go away; i feel yucky and all kinds of things. I also have reduced urination, possibly due to clots(?) blocking things. After doing some research, realize that maybe I've had urinary retention for a long time and may be dealing with a floppy bladder.

It helps so much to read these forums so that i can explain things to my doctor. Thank you all again for your support and feedback...it really helps :)

I'm with everyone else...get to a urologist quickly. It took me several months to get a diagnosis because I did not fit my PCP's idea of what a typical patient should be. I was in a woman in my 40s, a nonsmoker with no history or apparent risk for cancer. The kind of urgency you describe can be treated. Be insistent about seeing a good urologist and getting the tests that you need to rule out cancer and to address the issue of frequent urination. The best of luck to you.
