My doctor diagnosed me with microscopic hematuria. I've been through cultures and systscopes in the past when I had caught STD's. They did a systscope on me when I still felt pains but found nothing. THe pain eventually went away. Personally I think it was related to the STD. Now I know my doctor is going to want to give me this stupid systoscopy again.
My question to you all, is that I've read posts of people having hematuria, then going through painful procedures, in the end, finding nothing. I dont want to waste my time and pain for nothing, AGAIN. If you've been diagnosed with hematuria, please give me your findings (or lack of them!) here as I decide wether I want to go through with this systyscop again.
I'll tell you now, that I feel no pains at all whatsoever, except I have to wake up in the middle of the night if i have water or too much water after 9pm. other than that, i feel perfect.
I was diagnosed with microscopic hematuria. My doctor told me that with my other symptoms I probably had interstitial cystitis, IC. He did a cystoscopy and sure enough I had IC. MH could be a result of several things. Have they done an IVP or KUB on you? If they still don't find anything I would suggest another urologist. Good luck.
I had frequent urination for many years, it came on after I had surgery for endometriosis. I thought my bladder had been damaged from the electrocautery performed during my surgery. Well, I had another surgery a few years later and my doctor said my bladder was fine and I needed to have a cystoscopy. I had to put that on hold because I lost my insurance a few months later because I quit my job and went back to school. I had spoken to my GYN doc about the fact that I still urinate a lot, he did a urinalysis on me and found that I had MH. So I went to seea urologist, which I now work for, and I had a cysto done. Turns out it was IC. MH could be quite a few different things. I would suggest having some more tests done, have you been checked for kidney stones? When you have microscopic hematuria (MH) it usually a chronic problem. Where gross hematuria (lots of blood you can see) is more of an acute problem and is certainly more traumatizing. Please have more tests done, don't stop till you find out what the problem is. I am certainly glad I didn't wait any longer!
