Other than after my TURBT (for several days), I haven't seen blood except after BCG treatments and biops, but this site is great for keeping people knowledgable and aware of things that can happen - THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!! :)

Great. Thanks all. Obviously, my doctor's opinion is the most important, but it's just as important to me hearing from peers who have marched down this road prior.

I appreciate the quick response from all of you and wish you a great weekend.

Every time I go in for my cystos (six-month schedule now), my uro/surgeon asks if there's been any blood and my reply is always, "You'd be the second one to know!" So far I've been fortunate that the answer is "No". Mike is right... they always want to know about that immediately if it happens.

Yours was probably just related to healing and shedding off old layers of tissue. But I know what you mean about that thinking and thinking and thinking! So glad you're feeling great overall and happy about your "all clear" signal!

Best wishes... Catherine

It is normal but you should still let your urologist know. Always keep the doctor informed. :)

Seeing blood after a TURBS isn't unusual. Even a small amount of blood will turn a large amount of urine red. Kind of like food coloring in water. If you exert yourself or strain a little you can get a scarred area to seep small amounts of blood. Witch cause large amounts of panic. Trust me I know of what you speak.

But keep an eye on it, and keep your Urologist posted as to any more occurrences.

Just a note: You should always be checking your urine and stools for blood. Sounds over the top but that is the easiest way to tell if something is up.

P.S. Don't hold a pee! Carry a Thunder Mug (Urine Collector)on the water.

Two weeks since my all clear. I'm feeling great and mentally, doing great as well. No anxiety and I wouldn't expect it but just wondering if may hit me in the back of the head when I least expect it.

I had an "episode" last weekend that caused some concern. After a day on the water, came home and rushed into the bathroom. I couldn't believe what I saw. Bright red blook and lots of it. I went into panic mode and called my doctor. Unfortunately I had to wait until Monday but was told this is not unusual after a TURB procedure, even a few weeks out.

Have any of you experienced this as well? It certainly scared the heck out of me. I have a lot of faith in my doctor and believe him but still can't help thinking and thinking and thinking.
