How long does blood in urine associated with sickle cell trait last?

See below

Sickle_cell_anemia
Painless gross hematuria occurs with a higher frequency in sickle trait than in sickle cell disease and likely results from infarctive episodes in the renal medulla. Functional tubule abnormalities such as nephrogenic diabetes insipidus result from marked reduction in vasa recta blood flow, combined with ischemic tubule injury.

Dr. Scott J. Diede answered:

Can sickle cell trait affect the white blood cells?

No.

Open-uri20130405-25862-q91pol
Sickle cell trait (one copy of beta-globin gene with sickle mutation and one normal copy) will not affect white blood cells. Those with sickle cell disease (two sickle genes) can have chronically elevated white blood cell counts, caused in part by inflammation in the blood vessels.

Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

Is a blood clot in urine normal after prostate biopsy?

Common

Blood_clot
This occurs relatively commonly. If limited and otherwise does not hinder voiding, a watch and wait approach is reasonable. If not, call your doctor.

I found blood clot in urine even after i was told that their was nothing wrong with me by Dr. they took ultra sound test too.

Cincerned

Sonogram
This is an abnormal finding that needs to be investigated. There are standard urine studies that should be performed to look for a cause. This includes a urine analysis, urine culture, and urine micro. If the ultrasound isn't helpful, you may need additional imaging including CT scan and referral to a urologist for direct visualization.

Dr. Dan E. Fisher answered:

Blood clot in urine and slight lower right abdomen pain. Got ultra sound and blood test, they found nothing. What is this, and how can i treat it?

Follow up with doc.

Urine
Can't treat it unless you know what it is. Blood came from somewhere between your kidneys and the tip of your penis. There are a lot of things this could represent. You need to follow up with your doc until they are certain there is nothing evil in your urinary tract. At the end of the day they may say they found nothing. That would be good news.
