Hello everyone-I have a few questions-My son who is now 7 yrs old pees blood off and on-This has been going on for about 3 yrs. He was iron def. since he was 1 and they just put him on iron-not finding out what exactley was causing this. Saying that they were 99 % sure it wasnt cancer-this was back when he was 1. He stayed on iron because everytime they took him off-he would drop-Fast forward to 4 yrs old -we had trouble with potty training and accidents but nothing to serious. They took him off iron at 4 when he started pre-k- shortly after that I noticed the blood in his urine-I took him in to the dr. After some tests -it was blood-alot -figuring a UTI or kidney infection they put him on antibotics--blood continued -so refered to a Urologist. He found blood still and did a CT because I have lupus and have had kidney stones and dad has gout and also has had kidney stones they thought stone-ct showed nothing-so they sent us to a Nephrologist-who did a ultra-sound and the tech found something-she said it didn't cast a shadow and didn't move-they scheduled a biopsy the next day-we came for the biopsy and dr said the radiologist said it was a stone-so no biopsy-48hr collect of urine and they said he was a kidney stone maker and put him on some medicine to dissolve the stone-we don't know if he ever past a stone but he still pees blood. I just worry that noone takes it seriously its been 3 yrs and getting into the dr is very hard-he doesnt complain about any normal stone symptoms--no pain -he runs a low grade fever sometimes-he tires easily-the blood sometimes is dark brown and sometimes red-I just dont know if I should continue with this kidney dr or search out a different one-I am told he is the only one here in OKlahoma . So any ideas i would appreciate them. Thanks
