Unhappy Bile in Urine, always serious???

My husband (age 28) has had 2 urinary tract infections in 2 months.The only symptoms he had were rust colored urine and it took slightly longer than usual to begin urinating. The doctor said there was bile in his urine, but doesn't even want to discuss why with us. He's waiting to see if antibiotics will clear it up. I've been searching the internet for causes of bile in the urine and can find nothing except serious conditions. Can it be something that isn't serious and can be cleared up with antibiotics? Please help.

Hi there.
I am not a doctor, but I have not heard of bile in the urine from an infection. The antibiotics are not going to do anything for the bile, they will only kill off the bacteria that is causing the infection. I think you should get a second opinion about the bile. Your husband should have his liver function tested. Did he have any blood work done to check his liver? I have had many blockages in my bile duct and when it happens,I get rust or tea colored urine because of the backup of bile in the duct and my blood stream and the resulting trauma to the liver.
Please get another opinion, but try not to worry about it. It very possibly is nothing serious, but you should know, at the very least, what you are dealing with.
Good Luck
