Had a turps procedure four weeks ago. Am still passing blood in my urine
Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Have you been seen for this?
Any tests done?
Please let me know.

Urine tested for infection, hence the GP prescribing antibiotics. They had no effect on the pleeding
I think that you should go again to your doctor and have your urine cultured.
The antibiotic that you were prescribed may not have killed the bug because the bacteria may have been resistant to it and therefore a different antibiotic may be required.
Another possibility is that of tiny blood vessels still bleeding at the site of surgery which requires a referral to a urologist.
So I would like that your GP should refer you to your urologist who performed the surgery because they are the people who are best equipped with the knowledge and skills to deal with such a situation. Plus, your GP should do some more tests on the urine like a culture test as I mentioned.
Let me know if you have more questions.
Rate me for my services when you are done.
Kindest Regards
