  • getting worried

    In May I had the ILEAL CONDUIT done , now 2x's in the last week I looked at my bag and it was full of blood , for the past 2 weeks when I wake up I have the worse pain in my Kidney area and my Urine has a awful smell , I called my Primary DR. he told me that my uroligist is taking care of that which is true ,so I called him and all he says is drink more water my wife says the same thing , I drink about 6-8 glasses a day , but I still have the pain , should I be concerned or just let it go?

    Hey there Larry,

    If your urine is still a dark red, I'd be concerned.
    You may have the pain in the kidney area for a while even if it's getting lighter in color, only you can tell if it is getting lighter when you empty.

    I would think with this loss of blood you'd begin to feel a bit weak after while too if it isn't getting better, maybe not.

    I don't know how long this has gone on either, if a week or better then I would call the "uro" and tell him what is happening and how long it's been, just to see what he recommends for you.

    You take care,

    Your life is what you make it, and only you have that choice!

      It was just those 2x's then the red was gone , but my Urine is cloudy and has a bad smell to it. The temps are in the triple digits so that's making me weaker anyway ,but I'm feeling tierd all the time , not running a fever yet .

        Call the doctor's office & tell them.

          I called my Urologist and told him , after a major surgey that he should be watching me more closely , and I wear a folley bag and have to throw it away after just 3 x's wearing it the smell is so bad , I can tell just by the color and smell I have another U.T.I. and I want to catch it before it gets to bad like the last one that put me in the hospital for 3 days ,after I told him all this he finally said to bring a Urine sample to the hospital to have it checked out , a person knows when their body isn't right so off to the hospital I go after my wife gets home from work. and I want to thank you for agreeing with what I thought should be done in the first place , some of these DR.'s I just can't figure them out ; LBUSH
