Dad has A LOT of blood in his urine. I don't suppose this has anything to do with the alzheimers ??? Just wondered as I know we have a couple great nurses on this board.

Mom took him to docs first day she knew about it and they did lots of blood work, etc. and scheduled him for ultrashound and a test (she didn't remember the name) using dye. The first appt. they could get for the test is two weeks away!! I told her to call back and have them schedule at another facility which can get him in SOONER.

My brain is conjuring up things like cancer . . . he had prostate (roto rooter) proceedure done about 15 years ago and no sign of cancer then.

Thanks for letting me vent. . . I'm not obsessing over this . . . but I would like them to move a little faster with their tests.

Blessings!

My father in law had this symptom, it was kidney cancer, which required surgery but he is doing fine now. You never know, I would get him checked soon.

Thanks Peter, Mom did take him to doc's first day she knew about it . . . they did say that it might be cancer . . . we are waiting for urologist appt. and tests. Thanks for your post. . . I'm glad this something that might have a fix.

Blessings!

Sometimes this could be a sign of kidney stones as well.......Is he complaining of pain as well ?Sorry I wasnt available AR but had a soft bowel test today.If he has no pain I would think it may be an infection.........If you cant get an appointment sooner you may want to take him to emergency room.Would you be able to get a urine sample from him ........you just need to really clean a small container (perhaps an old pill bottle) and I mean clean it really good and see if you can get a sample and take it with you to the hospital or Docs appointment.............. .Only my opinion but I know that I would want my Dad checked immediately.........Let us know how you make out please .....take care and God Bless.

Dad had his urologist appointment today. Doc said that they couldn't see anything on the urltrasound and that the bleeding may be from some irritation at the site of prostate surgery many years ago. They will be doing another test mid-May which is some type of cystascope with dy. Meanwhile, they are having him p in a cup and testing that each week. Thanks for your help.
