Patient : 37 yr old F. Non-smoker. C-section 13 yrs ago s complications. No previous hx of urological issues. Starting in May, noted "chemical" odor, cloudy, dark urine. Occasional mild burning with urination. Intermittent mid-low back pain 9may or may not be related) Multiple labs revealed blood in urine. 3 rounds of antibiotics administered. Latest cultures show no bacteria. Both ct scan of kidneys and bladder scope revealed no abnormalities. Blood continues to be present.
