Good morning, thanks for the question
Kidney trauma is an injury to the kidneys due to various types of trauma both blunt and sharp. Kidney trauma due to injury in the stomach area is often followed by trauma to other organs in the abdomen. To evaluate the suspicion of renal trauma, an examination such as CT scan or MRI is needed.
In degree 4 kidney damage, damage to both the parenchyma of the kidney and damage to the arteries or veins is obtained. This type of trauma is a severe type and requires operative action, especially if the patient is in an unstable condition due to a lot of blood loss and massive damage.
Operative measures aimed at severe kidney trauma with the aim of immediately stopping bleeding. Furthermore, it may be necessary to repair the kidneys (in the form of renorafi or the connection of blood vessels) or it is not uncommon for partial or even total removal of the kidneys to be caused by very severe kidney damage. Overall, 13% of patients had renal trauma requiring renal removal during exploration, generally renal removal was performed on patients with a history of shock, unstable blood pressure, and severe trauma scores. In gunshot wounds, reconstruction may be difficult, so kidney removal is needed.
The success of surgery and reconstruction is largely determined by the severity of kidney damage, and it is very possible for patients to undergo surgery more than once if the damage is difficult to repair.
It is recommended that you consult with a urology subspecialist surgeon for further action planning to make it more comprehensive and optimal.
In the meantime you should get hospital observation and optimal bed rest to support cell repair. Eat nutritious foods and drinks and don't forget to pray for your recovery.
So, hopefully this information can be useful
