I am passing adequate urine. There are no clots in the urine. I do not have diabetes or hypertension. The accident happened six days ago.The doctor has not ordered a CT scan or ultrasound yet. I have a follow-up appointment in nine days. She will do another urine test to see if there is still blood in the urine. If so, she will order a CT at that time. Do you feel I should have a CT or ultrasound done immediately?

Yes, you should at least get an ultrasound abdomen done to rule out the severity of the injury. We do not advise any exertional activity until and unless we are sure that there is no hematoma of the kidney. Also, it is important to rule out any evidence of urethra injury.
