Hey all. I'm a 16yr old female who is VERY active in competitive sports, and one who suffers from chronic UTIs, and has had blood in my urine for over a year now, ever since my first hospitilization for a UTI (my kidneys were believed to be shutting down due to the Burgundy colour of my urine.. just a normal UTI for me). I've been doing many tests over the past year, and a couple of months ago my doctor told me that the blood visible in my urine was just hematuria, most likely becuase i am so physically active. However last month (with my monthly UTI) she found blood & traces of protein in my urine, sent it off and gave me my normal antibiotics. Then about 3 weeks ago she called and asked me to bring in another sample, (sorry to be graphic but it was a deep orange, extremly cloudy, and ..frothy?) and i havn't heard back from her yet. I am starting to become worried, wondering what might be going on. Anyone have any clue as to what might be happening or what i might expect? It's starting to affect my athleticism, as i have stop excersising as much to try and stave of the hematuria, and my coaches and my family have started to become worried by this. Help is greatly appreciated! :)Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
