Hi Brenda and Sherry,

I would be interested in hearing anything regarding blood in the urine as well. I am going through several additional test to rule out Crohn's for many of my other symtoms but nobody is explaining the blood I have in the urine. I just had an IVP that came back normal. However when I read the report it stated that there were some type of "something" showing up crossing both ureters. They indicated that it is probably vascular in nature and nothing to worry about. My question to my doc when I get to see her again is wouldn't it be reasonable to think that it might be adhesions attached to the ureters since I have a history of adhesions. I keep hearing that adhesions don't cause blood (I have it in my stools as well as urine), but if you have adhesions, couldn't they be pulling and tearing on your organs causing things to bleed? Trying to get all the "specialist" together and look at your history as a whole is proving to be difficult. From Atlanta, take care of yourselves in West Virginia! Ginny
