Nervous about Tuesday

I have an appointment with an urologist on Tuesday afternoon to find out why I have microscopic blood in my urine and I'm getting a little nervous. The blood was found on three different occasions when my doctor and surgeon were trying to figure out why I was having abdominal pains in May and June. They finally deduced that the pain was from surgery adhesions and I feel they are correct about that. All of my tests (CT scans, MRI, blood work) were good except for the urine analysis which showed the blood.

On Tuesday, the urologist will be checking out my bladder with a tiny camera at the end of a narrow tube. He said that the whole procedure will take less than five minutes, thank goodness. The causes for urine blood can be numerous, ranging from medications and urinary tract infections to cancer. Sometimes the cause for the blood is never found.

My urologist seems optimistic that there's nothing serious going on. And I'm grateful that all of my recent tests (other than the urine analysis) were good. I'm trying not to think about the worse case scenario (cancer of course) because my gut is actually telling me it's not cancer.

I'll be so glad when the procedure is done! In the meantime, I would appreciate you wonderful ladies keeping your fingers crossed and sending me your prayers that all goes well on Tuesday!

Thank you,
Kelly

I'll be praying for good news for you Kelly. If it's any consolotion, I know of a woman who had blood in her urine for over 35 years and it never developed into anything. They could never find the cause, but she never developed any problems from it.
