Hi Ladies,

Miss A had a fall last week from about 2mt, We were advised to take a urine sample to check everything was ok, and nothing internally was damaged in the fall.

Thankfully she seems to be ok from the fall. She does have a high white blood cell count in her urine. After being prescribed antibiotics and the culture sent to the lab to see if there was growth , it is not a UTI.

The DR can not really give us any more answers, but suggests to continue her antibiotics and then take another urine test 48 hours after antibiotic completion.

To say I am petrified is an understatement. She seems perfectly healthy!

Anone had an similar experiences?

My niece had a similar test result and in her case they put it down to a "contaminated sample" where the urine had been contaminated by other body fluids. Her second test was clear.

Given she had a fall I would be concerned about kidney damage. Has she had any other tests besides the urine test?

If you are concerned I would be inclined to go back to see the dr or even get a second opinion. You're allowed to be an overprotective mother - its part of the job description smile.gif

I hope it all turns out to be nothing. Please let us know how you get on.

Firstly, if Miss A seems happy and healthy it probably isn't something sinister. I've had urine results on several occasions that showed white blood cells in my urine. The first was when I had appendicitis (but I was also in agony and very sick so I don't think that's what's going on here). Another time I had a kidney infection and once when I was pregnant I got a contaminated sample like the one Mel B described.

That said, I am inclined to agree with Mel in terms of really wanting to rule out the very tiny chance that her kidney took a bit of a knock. I would definitely speak to the dr again to see whether this might be a possibility and whether he/she feels and ultrasound or something like that might be useful.

Good luck and I do hope that it's just one of those funny little things that turn out to be nothing.

They did state there was a very small amount of blood in the urine. But nothing to worry about. Thus ruling out the kidney issue.

I am feeling a little bit calmer knowing she is in perfectly good health and seems to be doing all the things she is meant to.

I think its time for us to find a new DR though!
