Patient :A 54 year old woman is currently taking Xarelto (anticoagulant) since she had an deep vein thrombosis about three months and a half ago. She felt burning while urinating for two days already, and she bled while urinating. The ratio of urine and blood as 1 to 1.
What are the risks and analysis in this case?
Symptoms: Burning and bleeding (ratio of blood to urine 1:1) while urinating
Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
Since she is on anti coagulation therefore there are high chances that she has developed bleeding because of that.
Still Urinary tract infection should be ruled out.
She should get following tests done:
2. Platelet count
3. Urine examination.
I hope it helps.
