Thanks for this info I too was freaking out so much blood... But I also have pain after ejaculation all in my pelvic area and shooting up my rectum. I had the biopsy on Nov 12th 2 days later high fever and chills. I ended up in the hospital for a week for IV antibiotics treatments and had to have a piccline put in so I could get IV antibiotics at home for 2 more weeks. The pain after ejaculation concerns me I see my uro next week.
All 12 samples neg.
Hi Tjw814. Welcome to HealingWell. Sorry that you have had to join us, but it looks like you have already started your journey regarding dealing with the PC beast that may be within you. Looking at your negative results it appearers you will not have to become a full member. At 39 you are way too young for that. Here you will find all the information (should you require it) All you have to do is ask.
As you now know, blood in the semen and urine is perfectly normal after a biopsy. When I had my first pee it looked like it was almost pure blood! It freaked me out so much that I started to sit down for a pee so as not to look at it. This should clear after a couple of weeks. Blood in the semen will start red. BUT, after about
a week it should look a muddy brown colour. This is important to remember, because if it is still red after that time it shows that you still have bleeding going on and should seek medical advice.
As your biopsy was carried out on Nov12th the pain you are still experiencing is not the norm, you could still have some kind of infection. I would advise you to get that checked out, sooner rather than later.
I am not a doctor, but going by your negative biopsy results and continuing pain I would lay money that you have Prostatitis. It can be just as difficult to diagnose and treat successfully as PC. Sometimes you will just have to learn to live with it (it cant kill you). That said, your biopsy should have shown if you had this. Give your uro a call and ask him to check that out, maybe even get a second read on your biopsy slides.
