Stomach pain. Blood work shows high WBC. Swollen lymph nodes in abdomen. CT scan shows hydronephrosis
I was recently in the ER with stomach pain in my right side. bloodwork showed high wbc and the dr said ct showed lymphnodes in abdomen swollen. I went and picked up my cat scan report and it didnt say anything about lymphnodes but it did say i had a right extrarenal pelvis in borderline mild right hydronephrosis without a clear etiology. I was told i had this about ten years ago and since then I have had this re-occur several times. Should I be concered about this being ongoing for so long?
you should get a radionuclide scan like DTPA Renography before and after lasix ( diuretic injection to know if the enlarged renal pelvis is due to obstruction or is just an extra renal pelvis without obstruction which doesn't require any treatment.
