Posted on Fri, 10 Nov 2017
Question: Hi I am a 43 year old fit lady. I recently had cystitis treated with antibiotics. No blood in my urine. All blood results normal but my U/S showed a mildly dilated left Kidney. I'm worried because I have no symptoms and feel well. Will this resolve? I have cystitis when I dress not pass urine after intercourse. In fact I still feel like I have the cystitis. Could this hav caused the problem?

Brief Answer:
Get examined and evaluated by a Urologist

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Mildly dilated left kidney may be due to partial obstruction of ureter on left side.
Urine examination with culture is required for recurrent symptoms.
Examination by an urologist is also advisable to go for intravenous pyelogram.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
