What Action Should Be Taken If There Is Left Hydronephrosis Suspicious Of The Appearance Of Pus Inside?
What actions should I get doctor? Is my kidney condition worrying?
Hello, good afternoon Fauziah ..
Hydronephrosis is a condition of kidney swelling because urine cannot flow from the kidneys to the bladder (due to blockage or resistance), so that urine builds up in the kidneys. Pus depiction (pus) in hydronephrosis indicates the possibility of an infection process in the kidneys. This condition is usually known through ultrasound examination, CT-scan, or MRI. Hydronephrosis can cause symptoms such as low back pain, pain during urination, frequent urination, feeling insolvent when urinating, unable to resist urination, nausea, and fever. However, in some cases this condition can not cause symptoms. Causes of hydronephrosis include:
kidney stones urinary tract infections scar tissue in the urinary tract, for example due to a history of injury or a history of surgery of blood clots in the urinary tract tumors of the urinary tract and so on
The handling action in the case you experience depends on the underlying conditions. In some cases surgery can indeed be needed, but in many cases hydronephrosis can improve by itself, that is, especially in hydronephrosis that occurs in pregnant women. In hydronephrosis that occurs due to blockage of the ureter (urinary tract below the kidney), the doctor can install a tube to dilate the ureter (stent). In mild to moderate hydronephrosis conditions, doctors can only give medicines to reduce symptoms (for example, pain relief, fever-reducing, etc.) and sometimes antibiotics to reduce the risk of urinary tract infections. In severe conditions, that is, when it interferes with kidney function, your doctor may recommend surgery, especially in the case of hydronephrosis due to large kidney stones or due to tumors.
We recommend that you consult with your urologist beforehand. The doctor who examines you directly can determine whether the hydronephrosis you are experiencing is mild, moderate or severe, and what treatment you need to get.
That's all, hopefully it helps ..
