I am looking into this for my husband. He is in the Army and has been having some burning when he would go to urinate after intercourse....he said it was normal, but did not mention it to me until a few days ago. I automatically thought..yeah, you better not have brought an STD home to me. I am a nurse, so I was taught men with burning penis's usually have an STD.
OK, last night he starts having some blood in his urine and then he starts getting chills and runs some fever. Throughout the night he was up and down urinating very little at a time, but also noticed little blood clots in the toilet. He went to the doctor today and they run some lab work on him and set him up with an appointment for a CT to be done....ON THE 25th of this month! I was furious! In 2 weeks he'll get a CT....this is how our soldiers are treated that serve our country...not to mention he hasn't been back long from being in Iraq for 15 months. OK...whole other story.
So, he has no results and says there is a little pain but only when he urinates. The doctor automatically said kidney stone, but I am thinking it could be something much more serious because of the lack of pain that he has and the blood clots. He does have a fever, so that indicates infection.....he also has a heart condition and I know that if your heart isn't working correctly it eventually goes to your renal system. I should of went to the doctors office with him, but he refuses to let me go due to the fact that I speak my mind and the fact that he refuses to tell his doctor he is having problems due to his heart condition....which is mitral valve prolapse with regurg....he started having symptoms while in Iraq and wouldn't say anything. He was diagnosed 12 years ago before he entered the Army, he just never had any problems. Now he is having problems and will not listen to me at all! I also know that some prostate problems could be involved as well. I am curious....what is up with the clots? I've passed kidney stones with no clots at all and have never heard of anybody that has passed clots with them.....if anybody has any suggestions please share them with me. I am going to continue to look around and see if I can find anything similar to what is going on with him. Thanks so much!:confused:
