Even asking this question seems to me to be ludicrous! I'll make this as short as I can. I thought I had a bladder infection, saw a nurse practitioner and the test came back normal, no infection, but had a lot of blood in urine. I've always had some but the nurse and then a doctor from the clinic both called and insisted I see a specialist-urologist. I had a cystectomy (camera inserted so doc can look at the bladder: test normal. He then had an ultra-sound done: test normal. The specialist had his nurse call and tell me the test results and that was that. I got mad and faxed him about the lack of eye contact, he asked me very few questions, and then he has his nurse call and tell me the results of the test and dismissed me like I had no symptoms. It seemed to me that he felt if my tests were normal then he had done his job; I had two test, is that what a urolgist does, just give up looking for the cause of my symptoms after two tests?. Arg....still have symptoms and blood in my urine. That doc called me 5 minutes after I sent him a fax and we talked a few minutes about what might be going on. He didn't know what was causing my symptoms but said F M could have something to do with the blood in urine. Is that a cop-out? Has anyone had the same experience? If so, please let me know what your experience was. Happy New Year, yes I am happy, test showed no cancer, but would like to know why I am having so many symptoms (full bladder, blood, and now it hurts to walk) I'm 63 next week, in fairly good condition (lots of pain) not overweight. I get up 3 times at night to go to the bathroom. Well, enough about that stuff. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
