Dilated kidney, done surgery for stone removal, swelling. Pain in left side
Hello my name is anna and I problems with my left kidney being dilated for about 3 months now. I started with kidney stones obstructing but had them removed surgically and the symptoms didn t subside and the swelling never went away. My cuurent urologist is now telling me that it is chronic (whatever that means) and that he doesnt think the pain I am experiencing is from the dilated kidney even though he admits the kidney is severely dilated. I am in agony and it is a dull ache on the left side. How can he at one point tell me it is only hurting from the dilation and now be telling me it isn t what is hurting. I am suffering and he is now sending me to a different doctor at CU boulder I am so frustrated and feel like he doesn t believe me
Anna,you may be right in inferring that the pain is originating from dilated pelvis. However other reason for the pain could be surgery scar.You may discuss wiyh your doctor again. You may also try local application of analgesic spray for relief
