The following was just recently posted by me in the Prostate Cancer section and thought I'd also post it here too since it does involve my Urinary system too.

Got my LD Brachytherapy anniversary coming up for the five year mark. There is some talk about possible hematuria appearing around the five or six year mark after the procedure especially if the prostate size exceeded somewhere around the 40cc mark. For a few months, I have been peeing blood but on an inconsistent basis but no aches or pains and absolutely no difficulty urinaring. May go for two or three days with no blood in the urine then suddenly will be peeing some blood in various amounts. Within about the last six months, I have had three (3) CT scans, one ultrasound, a Ureteroscopy and a Lasix Renalgram but nothing can be found to cause the passing of blood. The ureteroscopy is the procedure of moving a little camera from the urethra through the bladder, up through the ureter and into the kidney. That also showed NO tumor all the way from the peewee into the kidney. Anyone else in the long term Brachytherapy gang experiencing such a troublesome event?

Guess I am the ONLY one with the problem of gross hematuria (lots of blood in the passing of urine). Oh well, keep healthy folks!!!
