Blood still in my urine ( not visible) 10 weeks after laser

This answer was rated:

Blood still in my urine ( not visible) 10 weeks after laser prostate surgery. My doctor gave me antibiotics for urine infection. he told me there were leucocytes and blood but no nitrites in my urine. They are still there after 14 days of antibiotics so i am worried if there is something else wrong with my waterworks. The doctor wants to test my urine again in 10 days time. I have to see my surgeon in 14 days

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is not likely infection related.

Bleeding following prostate surgery is likely a complication due to the blood vssel injury in the prostate bed.

This can be stopped with hemostatic agents like aminocaproic acid for example.

Or sometimes, another surgery may be needed to stop the bleeding.

You should contact your surgeon soon.
Best wishes,
