kidney stones?

Posted By J Peterson on March 05, 1999 at 12:45:31:

Six weeks ago, I had my urine tested with a dipstick - no blood
detected. The next day, I noticed some 'blood clots' on the toilet
paper after urinating. The next time I urinated - I experienced
gross hematuria and the toilet paper was bright red when wiping
myself. There was also some discomfort on urination - similiar to
a UTI.( I have had UTI's 2-3 times in the past 20 yrs) An hour
or so after this started - everything was fine. However, I did
go see my Dr, and the urine dipstick showed blood. He then gave
me a course of antibiotics and no blood was noted in my urine on
recheck. Two days ago, the same thing happened. 'Clots' noticed
then next urination bloody and with some discomfort. Blood was noted
for about 60 - 90 minutes after initial blood seen. After this
time, no blood visible and no further discomfort. Is this
a kidney/bladder stone? ( Five years ago I had severe cervical dysplasia
which was CIS when treated, and also had a complete hysterectomy
with salpingo/orphtectomy due to an ovarian mullerian mucinous
tumor of borderline malignancy) I always thought if you had a
kidney stone the pain was extreme and the pain was not of a short
duration. ( Also had pneumonia and pleural effusion 10 months ago.)
