    Non visible blood in urine

    I have had 2 episodes of gross haematuria in the past, one was a suspected kidney stone and the other a confirmed kidney stone. These episodes were incredibly stressfull. Unfortunately I'm now recovering from appendicitis, and had to bring in urine for research. There was some minor non visible blood found again. The first doctor said it was so minor and that it was normal, the second doc said I had to bring in urine two weeks after recovery from appendicitis just in case.
    Two years ago there was a small kidney stone found, and I suspect this is still causing this, but my anxiety is through the roof. I don't want to go through all the testing again, and I don't know what to do.

    And here we go again. Microscopic haematuria found again, appointment and probably a cystoscopy within 3-4 weeks. The doc isn't worried but I sure am. I have had kidney stones in the past, but now I'm really afraid they missed something 1.5 years ago, as they did not perform a cystoscopy back then when I had gross haematuria. I don't know how I will get through the coming weeks

    Anyone for some reassurance? I'm having a hard time. I'm a 40 year old light smoker, to be honest I'm terrified. On the one hand I can rationalize and say it's probably a kidney stone or I'm just prone to blood in urine, on the other hand I'm terrified of bladder C. This is tormenting me for the past 5 years after my first incident with blood in urine. It's degrading my quality of life.

    Its going to be ok. You have the test booked and the chances of being something are way lower than the other way around and specially since you already had kidney stones.

    I understand the panic though, I have an endo colonoscopy coming up and same as you I think its probably something bad but just glad we are having it looked at and not being dismissed

    Thanks friend. The irony is that I was contemplating an endoscopy before this mess because of frequent bathroom visits. Now that I look back probably because of stress. The current situation does a number on people I guess. I've feares numerous cancers this years, each time believing it was the end. Today was a better day, I hope you and I receive good news

    Same, it will all be alright. I as well have feared a ton of health issues over the years, it is always a new one and I think these past 2 years been worse because less stuff to do, more time to think. Glad today was better, hope tomorrow will be even better and the test goes well!

    Re: Non visible blood in urine

    I'm extremely worried. I have a telephone consultation next week, the wait is killing me. Why do I have persistent blood in urine for 5 years now. Can this all be due to kidney stones or maybe just stress? Is three times unlucky and will they find something this time? The echo didn't show kidney stones, is a ct scan more reliable. I'm going insane at home, thinking about dying all the time, everyday is about surviving right now

    I don't know why I'm posting, maybe for my own piece of mind. The last few days have been terrible, all my previous fears have come back, I'm fearing the worst outcome even though I know the odds are really low and it's probably nothing or another kidney stone. Is this rational fear or have I lost it and is this 100% hypochondria. The last 5 years have been terrible and I don't know what to do anymore. I fear waiting for another few weeks. No one has to reply, I guess it helps a bit to write out my thoughts.

    Re: Non visible blood in urine

    Thanks for replying Nicola. What troubles me is that they did not find any stones on the echo. I believe a CT scan is more reliable for stones but it would have given me so much relief if they found a stone on the echo. I have a history of stones and know the chance of recurring stones is much greater than bladder or kidney cancer, but I just can't shake the thought...
