Gross Hematuria in Urine not cleared by Antibiotic Therapy

Patient

Q: Hello,
I recently went into urgent care almost 1 week ago because I had gross hematuria. No pain just noticed blood in urine. I was prescribed Cipro 500mg BID for 7 days and was told the hematuria should clear up within a few days. They noted that there was infection and some protein in the urine that they said could be due to infection. I have one day left of cipro and I am still experiencing gross hematuria. Should I return to the ER now or wait until the last dose of ABT.

Symptoms:  Gross Hematuria, No pain
