Blood in urine after cystoscopy

Resolved Question:

I had a cystoscopy this morning and I started noticing blood in my urine about eight hours later. It seems to be pretty pink at this point and does not seem to be letting up. It is now six hours since I noticed it. What should I do?

Dear sir,

Thank you for your consult at

There is nothing to worry with having blood in the urine after cystoscopy. It can continue for a day or two.

You need to drink lot of water so that the blood does not form clots and it shall stop by itself in 24-48 hrs.

Hope this helps, please feel free to get back with follow-ups, if any.

Take care.

So it had stopped around 2am or so but now at 930 am it started back up again. I am continuing to drink a lot of water. I am getting really nervous about this.

Sorry for the delay in reply.
How is it now ?
Do you still have blood in urine ? If so has it decreased in intensity ?

Don't worry about it.
It shall stop permanently by itself.
