Hello. About two months ago I took a course of cipro for a UTI (dark, cloudy urine with pus and blood). My urine has stayed clear since then but the clinic said my urine sample did not test positive for any bacteria and the issue might be kidney stones or prostate. However, I have had continual discomfort and low pain in my right abdomen, side, and back. No sign of passing any kidney stones despite drinking lots of water for weeks. Doctor has ordered a fecal screen for colon cancer and a renal ultrasound. No fever, blood in stool or other symptoms (my stool is often loose but I eat a high-fiber diet). Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Welcome to e health forum.

It would be ideal that you get a Ultrasound of your abdomen and pelvis (KUB- kidney , ureter and bladder) to detect any kidney stones

If possible , CT can also be done which can be more sensitive in identifying renal stones

Based on the findings further steps can be taken.
