    Dear Doctor. 2 questions :
    1. Did you prescribe any antibiotics or not?
    2. What is the purpose of prednisone usage – for Bladder or for spinal damage?
    Thanks !

    Sorry, forgot to reply to your questions…
    1. No antibiotics – hematuria was likely induced by trauma and urine culture was negative so I didn’t prescribe them
    2. Prednisone was for the spinal cord – partially to help the spinal cord injury, but also to help with pain relief…here in the USA, we are having a national shortage of opioids and many other medications, so our anesthesiologist has recommended we use low-dose prednisone as part of a multimodal pain management protocol
