Have sharp in right side of back. Ultrasound shows mildly enlarged kidneys. Suggestions?

Hi Doc,,

Hope you are fineand in good health.

When i woke up yesterday i had a severe sharp pain on the right side of my back radiating to the abdomen as if a kidney pain. I rushed to the emergency and the GP ordered an ultrasound (Abdomen and KUB). The results were as follows:

"Mildly enlarged right kidney with fullness of pelvicalyceal system no stone seen in kidney or ureter, Right ureter is un remarkable, findings of unflammatory changes"

Welcome to the forum.
Features are suggestive of pyelonephritis- infection of the kidney.
Plain and contrast CT SCAN OF THE KUB is mandatory.
In addition renal function tests and urine analysis are needed.
Treatment is based on the findings on the tests.
best regards
