Traces of blood in urine- unexplained -had for years-medical fail?? Anyone got Visa with this?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

 

i have had asymptomatic microscopic hematuria (traces of red blood cells in urine) for 14 years. It was found by chance, I had a full range of tests and investigations at the time and nothing sinister was found. I had a few follow ups but then didnt have to keep going. Sometimes it's there sometimes it's not. My dad has had the same for years (he's 60 now) and my brother the same. Is the fact that I have this likely to prevent me from getting my visa? This is the final hurdle.

 

 

anyone had the same and got their visa?

People fail medicals if their health care is going to be a significant expense to the Australian tax payer. IS your condition likely to mean this?

Hi, I have the same - I submitted letters from the consultant stating what investigations i'd had and that there was no explanation and it was unlikely to cause problems. I didn't have one of the letters, my GP photocopied it (charged me for copying) - shouldn't be a problem if you can send off the results of the investigations. It won't stop you getting the visa, but if you don't submit any evidence there's a chance they'd ask you to see a specialist.

I had the same, had to retake the test at GP surgery, came back clear. I'm sure you're aware, but the amounts can be minuscule, i.e. if your gums bleed slightly when brushing your teeth and you swallow a tiny amount, that will be picked up by the test.

This happened to my Dad, blood in the urine, and he was asked to see a Urologist for an expert opinion.

He has exactly the same condition as you and once he had the report saying what it was and that there wasn't a kidney or prostate problem / anything serious he was accepted without any further nonsense.

With your medical make sure you are not over weight!

Curious why you said this?

You can be failed for obesity!

 

Mmm, in certain circumstances with certain accompanying conditions (heart disease, diabetes, hypertensions), from my understanding. But for visas with a health waiver provision, most people without accompanying health conditions are not going to be denied, from what I understand.

Either way, though "make sure you're not overweight" is not really helpful advice, IMO. If someone is such a tiny amount overweight that they can fix that before they're medical, they're unlikely to be obese enough to warrant failing the medical.

I think that is scaremongering. I have seen countless people worry their weight might be a problem, I have not once seen anyone fail a medical because of being obese.

Hi Rupert

 

No, apart, from the investigations 14 years ago, there has been no need for any treatment or medication since as no actual medical condition has been identified.

I have the letter from the urologist when the tests (including a couple under anaesthetic so pretty in depth) were done 14 years ago stating he found nothing. I saw another doctor before him who did a couple of general tests before he referred me to a urologist for further investigation as a further precaution but I don't have anything from him and he's now retired. My GP only had the urologist letter. I'm hoping the letter from the urologist who states he found nothing will be enough.

See if your GP will write you a letter to say that since the investigations you haven't had any problems.

Hi I have the same and just passed the medical For NZ Very similar medical done by the same paneldoctors

One of the questions I was asked was " Was I a twin" and the answer is Yes I am a twin apparently its quite common in twins so they disregard it

But just incase I had the letter from my local Hospital where I had been 7 yeard earlier to have it investigated So if it had been a problem would have just shown letter that said it had been looked at and nothing Horrible found Hope this helps

That's really informative because my husband has had it for a couple of years now, they can't find any cause for it and he's a twin lol xx

Just to update. Went for medical today. As expected urine test had trace of blood but they waited half an hour, told me to drink 2 glasses of water and did it again - no trace!! So passed the urine test. Huge relief. Medical was graded A. Just waiting for chest x-ray.

HI everyone..

 

I have applied for a spouse visa and my husband is a Australian PR holder,I completed my all documentation and PCC.i was asked for a medical from CO which i completed last week.As per the discussion with my doctor all reports i.e, Chest X ray,HIV and other related are normal.In my urine test 1 plus RBC was determined.I was asked to repeat the test and same result was arrived.

Further,doctor asked me to urdergo three more tests i.e urine culture,urine microscopy and creatinine ,serum .

Creatine ,serum results to be normal but in urine microscopy,the RBC is 2-4 and pus cell are 8-10.I am very worried if this may result with the visa rejection on medical ground.

Can somebody advice me on this.

 

Please please...i am very worried for my visa.....

The panel physician is not ready to answer any queries,they will be sending the reports to High commission.Now what if they analyses it to be serious issue.

 

As per others it might be a simple urine infection which may be treated but still very worried if it will affect my visa

Thankfully I'm very fit. But how did my bro-in-law and sister get into Australia? They are morbidly obese so I assume they must have passed their medicals or their visas would have been refused. I doubt obesity can cause a visa refusal.
