Urine and Stool problems

My husband told me today that sometimes when he stands up to go to the bathroom after sitting down, a small amount of urine will dribble out on its own. He also said that twice now, has seen blood in his stool and the water even turned red. Does anyone know what could be wrong with him and if these two things could be related to some underlying condition? He is at the dr. right now, but I don't know when we will know anything.

Re: Urine and Stool problems

I am no doctor and based on the limited information you gave us.
It sounds like it is prostrate related. Men with prostrate problems have problems keeping urine in, it releases itself on its own will by pressure or sudden body movements. As far as the blood, that may be related to the prostrate problem but can also be another issue that is completely different, his prostrate can be bleeding so it comes out both in urine and in the stool.
Blood in the stool can be related to millions of other different reasons too. It is basically bleeding internally. It can be caused by a range from bleeding stomach ulcers to broken intestine, stomach lining caused by a virus, sharp object, physical injury, but he would be in extreme pain then. Either way I find it weird that you didn't mention any pain what so ever.

Re: Urine and Stool problems

Blood in the stool can also come from diverticulitis, which is not a terribly serious condition and is typically painless, as are a variety of more serious problems with the colon. But finding blood in the stool certainly warrants a trip to the doctor to rule out more serious conditions, such as colon cancer. And he should go today if not sooner to be sure. If it is a more serious condition, it can be treated and the sooner it's treated the better.

Re: Urine and Stool problems

How old is your husband? Does anyone in his family have prosate problems? Difficulty urnating can be caused by a lot of different things (obstructions, UTI's, warts, swelling, prostate prolbems). Many men over 40 have benign prostate enlargement. Bleeding in the stool can be caused by many different things. Because he is having both of these problems (although they may be completely unrelated) he should see his health care provider ASAP. Trouble urninating with bowel problems can be caused by serious prostate complications.
