Discuss with doctor: If it might be appropriate to have a urine cytology test if you are passing tissue in the urine. It is most likely a blood clot, however, bladder tumors can be very friable and little pieces can break off and pass in the urine.

How much blood in urine is normal after deflux surgery? I went pee and passed some red blood and blood clot about the size of a dime.

Blood after surgery: You just had surgery on your urinary tract. It is expected that you will have some blood and as you heal the amount of blood will decrease. For pain make sure that you use tylenol, (acetaminophen) NOT one of the NSAIDs, as they interfere with ability of platelets to clot. Speak to the urologist to get an average figure but as long as you see it getting lighter in color that is good! ...Read more

Blood in urine: Kidney stones can cause plenty of problems and can cause some blood in the urine. But bright red blood in the urine is a possible sign of something worse, such as bladder cancer. If you are unable to get in to see a urologist, you should consider going to an E.R. Btw, ultrasound is terrible at diagnosing kidney stones. You need a ct-urogram and cystoscopy. ...Read more

But you say you "always"have blood in urine.Whether it is microscopic or visible to the eye it is still blood. This is why your doctor wants radiographic study because there are many causes of hematuria above the bladder which will not show at cystoscopy. Go ahead with doctor's advice.Good luck ...Read more
