Doctor :   *kidney
User :   so what can I do to investigate further?
Doctor :   As you said your kidney is larger on left so that youhave pain in the left
Doctor :   We have to rule the cause for enlarged kidney

Doctor :   The probable causes are 1, hydronephrosis 2, Nephrolithiasis
Doctor :   And polycystic kidney disease
User :   But ultrasound did not find cycts, is that normal for it not to show up?
Doctor :   No
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Was your heamuturia frank or minimal
User :   minimal but there have been times when more. Last time there was puss in urine as well
Doctor :   Puss always indicates infection
Doctor :   Blood in urine is caused either due to some pathology in kidney or the urinary tract
User :   ok so could this be an infection of the kidney and if so why does this remain chronic after antibiotic treatment?
Doctor :   So in case the probable cause is infection in the kidney
Doctor :   Do u have past history of Tuberculosis/ Renal stones/
User :   is there then a treatment that I can get to get rid of it altogethor so this does not remain chronic. To answere your question no to renal stones. And I did not think tuberculosis was something I could get anymore?

User :   38 and female
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   When are you expecting your culture reports
User :   tomorrow I think
Doctor :   Ok if its just the infection of urinary tract then treated with ease
