My cath. out on 2/22 after RARP on 4/12. After cath removal, I have noticed some blood in my urine on occasion, as well as a few small clots. Am curious if others have experienced this, and, if so, for how long. I have been told that this is not unusual.

Yes, that's normal, lots of clots and gunk will pass. It may take up to 2 months or longer for things to clear completely. You will probably see what seems to be fresh blood for quite some time, but remember you got lots of stitches to heal and a drop of blood seeping from one of them can color urine alarmingly red. So relax and enjoy the show, unless you get copious amounts of bright red blood showing.

Very normal, only a problem if clots cause you to have any blockages from urinating, or if the amount of blood suddenly seems heavy, if so, call your doctor immediately.

Thanks, James! Don't know if I can go quite so far as enjoying the show, but your comments really help the relaxing part! Quite an adventure for all of us, great to have all these medical advances available.

I way overdid it three weeks out and started peeing lots of blood. Doc was completely unconcerned, as Dave said, only if you CAN'T pee do you worry. I just burst a few capillaries - it looks alarming to us. not so to a doc. It can go on for more than two months.

That is what I had for about one week - Dr. said that it is common among patients.

The drinking of lots of water could never be stressed enough, and they mean plain water. Coffee, tea, sodas, juices, while they contain mostly water of course, don't flush out as well as just lots and lots of plain H20.
