Thanks for writing to us.
The pain arising from the right kidney can be related to an infection or a stone in the area. To help with the pain, she needs to plenty of fluids orally along with fresh cranberry juice. Decreased fluid intake will aggravate the pain.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
