  • Just Terrible

    Hello there, it has been a while since I have been able to post.....havn't had the money for internet....well I had this horibble flare just a few weeks ago...I wasn't able to void for 7hrs and it was the worst pain I believe that I have been in my whole life....It was very strong, hard, sharp, ongoing pain...I couldn't get comfy at all, I tried everything that I knew, I took a bath laid in different positions, used heat and ice...used my meds and patch...Nothing worked...

    Then finally upon the hundredth time of trying to void, I finally did and when I did it was bright red blood.....There was bright red blood in my void for at least 5 times that I can remember and then it just went back to what I consider normal....

    It has come back again since the first time just not as hard....any ideas!!!! Is this just a terrible flare or could it be somthing else....Thanks for reading
    Live your life to YOUR best, and Love to YOUR best!!!

    Hi, stac7_8 ~
    I'm so sorry no one has been able to reply to your post until now. I would hope you'd be able to get the the doctor to see what's going on. I don't have any experience with your problems (have had retention to the point of tears but was able to go much sooner or be cathed), but sounds like your doctor really needs to get involved before things may develop into something more serious.

    Take care...prayers you'll be feeling better soon,

      I agree that you need to talk with your doctor. Sometimes blood in the urine means infection, but not always --- you really need to find out what's going on.

      Sending warm hugs,
      Stay safe
