I've been seeing blood in my urine for over a year. Also have protein. My legs and feet are swelling. Doc says I'm normal. Is it?

In brief: Not normal

Blood and and protein in the urine accompanied by swelling suggests a problem with kidney function.
Perhaps what the doctor was referring to was the anatomy of your urinary tract, which is distinct from kidney function. Tests measuring. Kidney function may hep sort this out.
