Hi

I swollen kidney is also known as hydronephrosis.This can be caused by a blockage from a stone, UPJ or UVJ obstruction just to name a few possible causes. Did you have the CT scan yet? If so what did your doctor tell you?
How are you feeling?

I had my surgeon consult in the AM (which was previously scheduled) and the CT scan in the afternoon. I wont have results for about 1-2 business days...

I just want to feel well...I will look up the hydronephrosis.

hello iam new to the blog. i have recently found out that i have a swollen right kidney,and a blockage that can be due to a kidney stone.my doctor found it during a sonogram as well. I have had most of the symptoms that are listed on this forum besides the burning when urinating. I have went to a specialist and now i have to have some lab work done. but i have yet to have a cat scan i am in pain constantly and it is affecting my daily routine my gall bladder was removed in 2001 due to gall stones and now this i am glad to know that there is a blog that i can go to where there are people suffering from the same thing because my friends and family dont understand what i am going through they think i can reverse whats going on simply by drinking lofts of water. and its not that easy i have been having these symptoms for a while but it wasnt until i saw the dark urine and i felt the constant kidney pain if jan that i decided to go tell my doctor about it i thought i could just drink some water and flush out my kidneys but i found that wasnt the case.

Swollen Kidney
I am a 45 year old female. Was having upper abdominal pains. Had an ultrasound done Monday, and they found that my right kidney is swollen. I am being sent to a Nephrologist in a week. Am a little nervous. Can't figure out why they aren't sending me to a urologist. Have battled with kidney stone's about 4 years ago, but having no symptoms of them now.

Distended Kidney and nephritis-
In males, a distended left kidney diagnosed from an ultrasound-- could consumption of lemon in water and drinking frozen lemonade contribute to this condition? Could male masturbation conribute to this condition? Where does one obtain radish juice to drink to restore kidney back to healthy condition. Want to try to do so, before having a second ultrasound in three months Please reply.
