Hi, my 11 year old son has had blood in his urine for almost 5 months now. He noticed it himself so I guess it's gross hematuria. He also leaves spots of blood on his underwear. His initial urine test came back as negative for bacteria so the doc stopped his antibiotics. He was eventually referred to a urologist for an x-ray and ultrasound both of which came back clear, he also has some protein in his urine. One urine sample he provided seemed to have what looked like a clot in it. He's had a bit of a cough for the past few months, which may or may not be relevant. For the past three nights when I've gone to check on him he's drenched in sweat.
Now we're waiting for him to be referred to a pediatric nephrologist. I have no idea what the problem could be, so if anyones had these symptoms please let me know if I'm worrying over nothing. Thanks
