This morning I had a wonderful surprise when I urinated after my run… my urine was bright red. I don’t recall if I had to go when I first woke up, but if I did I certainly didn’t urinate red.
I appeared to urinate some blood the second time I urinated about 1 hour later but since then I’ve gone 2 more times and it has been clear. The second urine was a much darker red.
I had the big V about 5 months ago and very occasionally there has been pain when, uh… clearing out the tubes. Last night there was some pain, but nothing even remotely as intense as I’ve experienced in the past.
Please don’t chime in with “get thee to a doctor”.
If a patient presented like this, what would be the first instinct?
Blood in the urine is never a good sign?
Likely just a delayed side effect of the vasectomy and nothing to worry about?
I have no other symptoms that I can tell; no fever and no discomfort.
I have a 3:00 appointment with my PCP.
