No fever, lower back pain yes, nothing else other then belly pain. I do not have access to my ultra sound report only my family dr has that.

Thanks for feedback.
The findings of the ultrasound like whether there is hydronephrosis or not is very very important to rule out presence of stones in the kidney and ureter.
Please try to access the report with consultation of your family Dr.
It is difficult to comment on enlargement of kidney without detail USG report.
Thanks and Regards.
