Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

Your report says that there are fluid filled cysts (defined spaces containing fluid) in the upper poles of both kidneys. Also it indicates evidence of decreased kidney function and also fluid collection in the abdomen and thorax cavities. The urinary bladder wall is also thickened.

You could be in renal failure. But only your examining doctor could tell for sure.
You need detailed evaluation for fluid accumulations and renal failure.
Cysts if not associated with these abnormalities are harmless and need no treatment.
Rarely the may get infected or harbor a tumour growth.

Please be guided by a nephrologist.

I hope you are fully satisfied with the guidance I gave.
Hope I have answered all your questions. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Please ask for any clarifications before closing and rating this answer.

Thank you and Good luck!
