Hello and thank you for your post on E health forum.

From the report given, it seems that that

1. There is a stricture in the ureter, that is blocking the flow of urine in the urinary tract. This obstruction has caused kidney swelling due to chronic back pressure.

2. There is a infective abscess in the psoas muscle.

You might benefit by consultation with a urologist for proper treatment of the condition. This may include correction of the ureteral stricture by surgery or stent placement.

I hope this helps.

I am schedule for laser removal of a ureteral stricture and am very under informed about the procedure and if its even an in/outpatient thing. I am trying to look up online and am finding it hard to find information on ureteral strictures and just seem to get info on urethral ones. How is this procedure done and how long can I expect to be in the hospital for? Is it very painful? My urologist mentioned that because of where the stricture is (very high up) that if this didn't work or it grew back we were looking at removal of the kidney, does this sound accurate to you? Im only 25 and shocked to have these issues at all...thank you for any help you can give me!
