Cortical Thinning in Both Kidneys from One Kidney Stone ?

I m 19 and I had a kidney stone that blocked my kidney and caused pyelonephritis and then lead to sepsis, which almost killed me. Could the kidney stone that blocked one of my kidneys have caused the cortical thinning of both of my kidneys?

Welcome to healthcaremagic,

one stone blocking a single kidney can cause pyelonephritis and sepsis so severe that it can kill you. however, it shall not cortical thinning of other kidney. you shall have different etiology for kidney thinning such as vesicoureteric reflux. you sholud see a urologist and sort out your stone problem and also find out the cause of your bilateral cortical thinning.

Take care
