URINARY OBSTRUCTION: Inability to urinate is usually due to some type of urinary obstruction, and it may or may not be related to your hematuria. If you are unable to urinate, you should see a urologist asap, because this can have serious consequences, including kidney damage if there is an obstruction. A ct scan and possibly a cystoscopy will most likely be able to find the cause of your hematuria and obstruction.
