    Question Dark brown urine

    I have read some of the posts on this subject and would like to gather some info re my situation.

    Background info: Sometime in November/13 I had problems urinating. The flow would not start - sometimes taking up to 6-7 minutes - then it would not be my normal, strong flow. Also, I did not feel 'empty'. The colour & odor were normal. After having an ultra-sound they discovered a spot on my pancreas. This prompted more ultra-sounds, blood tests, and MRI. Long story short - I have liver cancer (stage 1). By early January the flow was back to normal with the exception of what is happening now. I also have Hep C but no cirrhosis.

    My first urination of the day is VERY dark brown and has a nasty, very strong odor to it. The colour gradually gets back to 'normal' and the odor weakens (but does not disappear) with frequent urination. I have no other symptoms.

    I drink a LOT of liquids, especially milk (about 1 1/2 qts of milk a day). I do not drink water. I always have something to drink beside me. I very rarely drink alcohol.

    Does anyone have any suggestions/thoughts on this? My oncologist has set up an appointment with a urologist (May 6) because of the flow problem. He does not know that the symptoms have changed.
