approximatley 20 years ago I visited a doctor after severe abdominal pain. after a urine test found microscopic blood in my urine i underwent my 1st systo to find the cause. the dr. couldn't give me an answer but said that there was no blood present then. To make a long story short i underwent my 4th systo last year. over time the blood was very visible and yet after seeing 4 different drs. and 2 kidney specialists I had a problem the other morning when I awoke with abdominal pain/cramping.There also was blood in my urine that was not visible before that morning. also lower back pain. what do i do ? back to the same old thing or find an answer/direction from a different source. feelin better but need to do something. any help out there?View Thread
