i had RGU …i had pain when they pushed dye and then there was some problem in coordination while taking xray …and after the procedure i had blood clot coming out…i could not urinate due to burning pain afterwards. even after 40 days i feel slight burning sensation sometimes. should i talk to doc again..

Burning sensation while urination means Urinary Tract Infection, only one time you had an episode of passing blood clot? yes you should consult your doctor, go to doctor with investigations like urine culture & senstivity, urine microscopic examination and complete blood count, that will help the doctor and will save your time too in getting diagnosed.

burning sensation is little after urination…or masturbation.And it is occasional.
yes blood clot passed only once after the test. i took alpruli (6 days), albastone syrup(for 15 days) after test. The alpruli also relieved of occasional back pain.

my urine culture tests, does not revealed anything in recent past despite cystitis. i took antibiotics to get relief. i will get it done again and meet doc. thanks.

alpruli contains Prulifloxacin which should be taken for 14 days course, there are more antibiotics whose course is less days, you can take those, too. May be this time you got some other infection, so culture is must so that accurate antibiotic can be given.

How can I view the videos especially on retrograde urethrogram when it always comes up with a “private video ” message?
