Bit of a crazy longshot, as I know this thread is years dead, but my girlfriend is having this problem too, a little less than a year after orchi. Urine samples have blood, but otherwise it's not noticeable except in ejaculate (and that started quite some time after the orchi). Her GP and surgeon have no clear idea what's awry.

Did anyone in this thread figure out what was happening? If so, could they please point me to any relevant resources or pass on info for the doctors who know what this is?

It might b the same what I have.  A couple of years ago blood was discovered in my urine.  first they did an MRI of my kidneys, but could not find anything wrong there.  they decided t shove a scope into my bladder and found the problem.  My prostate is somehow sitting relatively funny, and is pushing into my bladder.  There the constant pressure cause two veins to swell up like varicose veins which leaked blood into the bladder.  I was put onto the strongest dose of Finasteride, and the problem disappeared.  I was told that the problem may come back, once I stop taking Finasteride.  Even after an orchiectomy I would still be required to take Finasteride!

I hope they find the problem

Spitvalling here....have the Doctor' ruled out renal calculi partially blocking the urethra? Kidney stones can be asymtomatic and cause UT bleeding.

I posted about what I think is the same thing (don't really have time to lookup the post link), I'm really glad this post got resurrected and to see that I'm not alone in this symptom.

I first saw blood in seminal fluid when I'd gotten to a year post-op and not having ograsmed to that date, decided it was time to expel accumulated semen by pressing on my prostate during play (something I'd done for fun when not wanting an orgasm in the past while wanting some release).

What I was surprised to see was a dark red-brown fluid on my fingers. I've had quite a few appointments to have it looked at and basically there's no explanation -- I'm in the diagnosis of hematospermia-unexplained and apparently not a problem. Prosatitis has been ruled out, my PSA is rock-bottom low as would be expected from someone who'd never had a high PSA result and has minimal testosterone in their blood, also no infections etc. I also have very slight traces of blood in urine, to be expected given urine passes thru the prostate / G spot.

So it's helpful to know that others are seeing this. It's not uncommon in the general population. I have to think that this is a part of the orchi where blood is leaking from the surgical site thru the vas to the prostate. Originally I'd guessed that it was there because I hadn't used the prostate in so long -- and I suppose that could still be part of it (still orgasm-free :-(). Discolored semen is a thing that happens when the prostate doesn't get flushed for long periods however what I see now is it's red-brown no matter what the period is between expressing semen manually. I'm going to contact my surgeon again now that I know others are seeing this.
