Right kidney removed 1981. The left kidney seems to be OK, except 15 days ago blood was in my urine every time I cough, I pee blood. First it was dark brown on pad but dark red in toilet. I’m still showing blood. Bowel movements is a little more runny than usual. Had a few sick to my stomach after eating certain meats.

Blood in the urine is never a normal finding.  I suggest that you contact your physician to have an examination.
