Confused about what is going on with hubby

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Yesterday he had blood when he urinated and that was until he went to bed. When he got up in the morning there was not blood at all. He will be doing a urine test but I am not sure that they can tell us what happened and I think that when he got that potassium IV that is what caused it. He never had that problem and it went away. He has enough on his plate right now with the cancer and with all the lumps on his body. He also started a new chemo treatment this week too. So I am not sure which is messing with his urine. He will be done with radiation this coming Monday. That thing that he has to be put in is not a fun thing and it ties him down to the table.

Update: He did have a urine test and they don't know why he had blood in the urine. I think that it was from the potassium that he got and then had blood come out. It only happened that one day and the next day it was clear and no blood in his urine.

    Dorothy,

    I can sympathize with your husband and the odd way they do the treatments.

    I had my head put into a u-shaped holder then they put a clear face plate over that and shoved me into the MRI tube. I had a thousand panic attacks before the scan was over.

    I guess we all do what we have to do, but it sure isn't pleasant.

    Blessings to you both. emoticon

    I am glad your husband had it checked out by his doctor. When my boyfriend went through chemo, his urine did change color. It looked a lot like the medicine in his IV. Maybe it wasn't blood, but just the dyes in the chemo. My heart goes out to you both. I thank God my BF is doing as well as he is right now, I remember last year not really knowing what the future would hold. I have been feeling terrible with this cold and I feel like a big baby complaining about how sick I've been when this is really just a minor inconveniences.

    A lot of different things can cause blood in the urine - some serious, some not so serious. One is an infection, maybe in the bladder and sometimes easily treated. I hope it's a minor thing.

    Did he discuss this with his doctor. There are several possible reasons for blood in urine and they must be ruled out, but more importantly you want to make sure nothing interfers with the treatment for cancer. Please have him talk to his doctor. My prayer go with him and with you.

    Chemo can mess with everything in your system. The urine test should (hopefully) take get some answers. I am sorry he and you are going through this. God knows and He loves you very much!
