Question:

I have recurrent blood in urine and am on antibiotics at least once a month due to frequent UTI`s. I have right lower back, flank pain with radiation to the groin and pelvic area. Also noted to have pelvic phleboliths. I had a left nephrectomy due to cancer in 1999. Why the pain, blood and infections?

Answer:

I am not sue why you are having the blood and infections. It is important that you follow up with your urologist for further evaluation.
