Strong foul smell after urination. Black discharge. Tender paining kidneys. Causes?

I am a woman who just turned 57 and I ve been having black discharges that have started to occur a lot more. I don t know if it s from my bladder or vagina . Had my uterus taken out 17 years ago but they kept my ovaries. It s definitely a very black discharge and I have to wear a pad every day. Most times while going to the bathroom, after I urinate, there is a strong foul smell. I ve never have had a smell that bad. Sometimes my kidneys are tender and ache. The thing that concerns me the most is that it s an actual BLACK discharge with strong smell. It s not a brownish black or dark brown . My discharge is always black and never varies with any other color. What could this possibly mean? Thank you.

Urologist 's  Response
The black discharge is most likely to be coming from the vagina because unless you have incontinence it is not possible to have come from bladder. Get your urine tested for evidence of infection and sugar. Get your blood sugar checked. Also ultrasound of the abdomen to look for the kidneys. Visit you gynaecologist and if everything is normal take urology consultation. Sometimes old clot looks like black discharge.
