Weird but it cleared up. I will wait a bit as they have self resolved in the past. I've been on so many antibiotics and want to avoid if I can
It is hard to say what caused the bleeding, you have a lot going on that could lead to blood or other problems. You have a blood thinner and you say "Last time a UTI caused a lot of hematurea for 10 day's and stopped the day sfter I withheld the Xaralto ". Is all or any of that a possible contributor to the current problem?
Either way, though never say never because all types of crazy things can happen, but I certainly would not be concerned about
2000 mg a day of vitamin C. I have been taking that much or close to it. And I have liposomal vitamin C handy for if I show signs of infection, but otherwise won't use until the crises is about
over. Humans( or so I am told) and a very few animals have a genetic defect where we can not make our own Vitamin C, so we must consume it or die. Most animals, especially in the wild, however, can make their own vitamin C in response to stress up to and beyond 100,000 mg per day. They don't usually start bleeding because they do that, nor have I heard of people on high dose IV vitamin C doing so, and those doses can be 25000 to 100000 mgs.
During the 2 months between my biopsy and surgery, I took about
10 grams(10,000 mgs) of oral vitamin C per day, and had no problems unless I would consider my PSA dropping for the first time in history a problem, which it did by about
25%. No bleeding, and I don't recall Vit C being on the list of supplements to avoid pre surgery because of bleeding problems.
Also, if people are going to have problems with high doses by mouth of vitamin C, it is usually more like loose bowels, at least until they get used to it. It can act like a laxative. Large doses(in my experience), 4 gms at once, might also cause stomach aches unless taken with food.
So, again, never say never, because who knows if you might have some rare problem that means you can not handle much vitamin C. But barring that, I seriously doubt 2 gms daily are causing you any bleeding or any other problems, assuming it is not causing you to go sit down on the toilette more than usual. Apparently, if we were, in the distant past, originally designed to- like many other animals- to make our own vitamin C, then when we lost that ability, our bodies never became that enamored with taking vitamin C by mouth, and beyond a relatively small amount, it starts rebelling. At least until your body gets used to it.
Keep in mind that the side effects listed here are for high dose Intra venous therapy, which is a whole nother ball game. "
What Are the Side Effects and Risks of High-Dose Vitamin C?
Intravenous high-dose ascorbic acid has caused very few side effects in clinical trials. However, high-dose vitamin C may be harmful in patients with certain risk factors.
In patients with a history of kidney disorders, kidney failure has been reported after ascorbic acid treatment. Patients with a tendency to develop kidney stones should not be treated with high-dose vitamin C.
Case reports have shown that patients with an inherited disorder called G-6-PD deficiency should not be given high doses of vitamin C, due to the risk of hemolysis (a condition in which red blood cells are destroyed).
Since vitamin C may make iron more easily absorbed and used by the body, high doses of the vitamin are not recommended for patients with hemochromatosis (a condition in which the body takes up and stores more iron than it needs)...." https://www.emedicinehealth.com/vitamin_c_high_dose_benefits_side_effects/article_em.htm#how_is_high-dose_vitamin_c_taken
"The additional amount of vitamin C in the diet that leads to the best of health in humans is controversial. The amount of ascorbic acid that other species synthesize can be used as a model. When adjusted for body weight, it has been determined that the amount of ascorbate produced by mammals ranges from an estimated 3,000 mg to more than 13,000 mg daily (Pauling, 1986). Nearly all species manufacture these copious amounts 24/7 out of the sugar glucose, and they make more vitamin C under stress............... http://internetwks.com/owen/gorilla3.htm
"Goats, like almost all animals, make their own vitamin C. An adult goat, weighing approx. 70 kg, will manufacture more than 13,000 mg of vitamin C per day in normal health, and levels manyfold higher when faced with stress. The overwhelming majority of species of animals (but not humans, guinea pigs or fruit bats) and plants synthesize their own vitamin C............" https://med.libretexts.org/courses/american_river_college/general_nutrition_textbook_(not_plant-based)-_reference_for_nutri_303_(hagenburger)/7%3a_vitamins/7.3%3a_water_soluble_vitamins/vitamin_c_(ascorbic_acid)
