So for many years at my annual physical, my Doctor has told me, “The lab report says you have a trace amount of blood in your urine, but you lift weights so don’t worry about it.”
Then this past summer, my wife pointed out that there was blood in my seminal fluid. Generally it looked pink, but every once in a while, it would look just like the blood you might see when you pricked your finger.
So back to the doctor, and he recommends I see a urologist. An CT or MRI (can remember which), and an unbearable procedure where they stuck a tube up my penis to check my bladder from the inside, and nothing…“All clear. Thanks for coming to see me. Let’s do it again in a year.”
Still it is quite unnerving ~ and it seems to happen most noticeably the day after I do heavy squats/legs.
Has anyone else had a similar experience, or had a Doc tell them, “Well you lift so there’s naturally going to be blood in your urine?” He does all the physicals for the local football team, and he told me they have the same lab reports as I do…
