Question: bleeding 5 days after kidney biopsy
|nan5 - Tue Dec 08, 2009 10:54 am||
Hi I am 53 and had a kidney biopsy on 5 days ago. Stayed overnight with blood in urine the following morning, but discharged from hospital. Red blood the second night and then brown spotting periodically within these 5 days. Small amount of red blood this morning. Healthy otherwise, bun was 41 and creatinine was 1.5 before biopsy. All in all, I STILL have pain at lower left kidney site and am told by dr's office bleeding is normal . I am at home, no work since biopsy and no lifting or straining. Is my continued pain, (aching) and brown, sometimes red blood in uring normal 5 days after biopsy?

UPDATE. It is now 16 days past my needle biopsy. Bleeding and pain stopped 4 days ago (12 days after biopsy) and had one episode of red bleeding yesterday and one episode of brown blood today... Was diagnosed last week with a hemotoma ... Blood levels as of 6 days ago was 11.8 hemoglobing and 33.7 hemecrit.
Dr. says just REST ,,,, kidney is STILLLLLLLLLLLLl bleeding... is this normal?
