Hi doctor,

I have been suffering from frequent urination for the last two days and slight pain in the left side abdomen. The urine test found 10-15 hpf RBC and the USG report came back normal. What does this mean?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Do you smoke?
  • At 33 years, the combination of recent onset of frequent urination with flank pain and urine analysis showing RBC (red blood cells) indicates the most likely passage of the small ureteric stone.
  • If USG comes persistently normal with same picture repeated, then we might need to evaluate it more though majority chances of it turning out to be everything normal.
  • I would suggest repeat urine analysis after 15 days or if again similar symptoms.

Treatment plan:

I suggest the following treatment. Please consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take treatment with consent.

1. Tablet Tamsulosin 0.2 mg.
2. Tablet Tolterodine 2 mg at bed time.
3. Syrup Noculi B6 (Potassium citrate) two tablespoon with half glass water twice daily for seven days.

Regarding follow up:

Revert after 15 days to a urologist online.---> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/urologist

Hi doctor,

I smoke occasionally or very rarely. Is there anything to worry?
