blood after biopsy

I was wondering if any others have experienced, as I have, blood in the urine after a biopsy of the prostate. Also, what was the extent of pain during the procedure?

Hello my friend..

I had blood in urine after the biopsy that cleared after a couple days. As far as the pain, it was uncomfortable..but nothing terrible.

Hope this helps.

I had blood in the urine for a few days and blood in semen for a couple of months.

Blood in semen lasted several weeks. The biopsy procedure was very uncomfortable, but not painful.

My urologist refused to give me local anesthetic (how typical is this?); the procedure wasn't painful but very uncomfortable.

The discomfort increased the rest of that day, however, and I had to have an orgasm that night to relieve it. What resulted was pure blood, and about twice as much blood as the fluid in a usual orgasm.

I had that discomfort for several days, and it was about two weeks till the blood went away.

Since there's a small chance of infection from the colon being pierced, I was given an antibiotic tablet to take after the procedure.

Thanks, guys, for your input. As to blood in semen, I didn't have that problem since I have ED.
