Shooting out blood clots provide some of the best post surgery entertainment there is. Of course, I overdid it week 3 and had, what looked to me, copious amounts of blood in my urine. My doc was very nonchalant. He said I ruptured a few capillaries. No big deal. As long as you keep passing blood clots, you are fine. It's when they block your urine flow that you must go to the hospital. I passed clots for almost 2 months. They were not at all concerned. It only looks frightening to us!
