Pain near kidneys, blood in urine. Surgery done for removal of ovary. Causes for symptoms?

Hi Dr, my mom has been having some pain in her lower side, right around where her kidneys would be at. And now she is peeing blood . She has had one of her ovaries removed and the doctor just recently told her she would need to have the other one removed. She wont go to the doctor, but I think it could be serious. Why is she having these pains or peeing blood?

Hello and welcome to HCM

Pain in the region of kidney and passage of blood in urine indicates some kind of pathology in the urinary tract. The most common pathology is the presence of stones in kidney or in the upper ureter.

You need to get some investigations done. First and fore most an ultrasound of the abdomen. A X-ray of the abdomen is also helpful because majority of kidney stones are radio-opaque (visible on X-ray film).
If required some other investigations can also be ordered by your doctor like an Intravenous pyelogram (IVP).
Secondily, complete urine examination which includes routine urine examination and culture. In case of urinary stone, infections are common which can be identified by urine culture. Antibiotic course will help to resolve the infection.
The management of the stone in kidney or in the ureter depends on the position and size of the stone/ stones. They can be removed by simple laser or by open surgery.

So, consult your doctor for investigations and management.

Thanks and take care

Hi shelbyrodriguez1 welcome to HCM,

You have mentioned here that pain is on the lower side where her kidneys wolud be, may be you have misinterpreted the position of kidneys. But blood in urine is a serious problem which needs to be evaluated So lets look at both the possibilities...
Lower abdominal pain and blood in urine can occur in many conditions like stone in the ureter, bladder, cystitis, urinary tract infection and some serious conditions like bladder cancer which needs to be evaluated.
Pain around kidney and blood in urine may be due to renal stones, renal cancer, etc.
Urine examination, ultrasound or CT scan needs to be taken to rule out the causes.
Sometimes abdominal pain may be due to ovarian problem and blood in urine may be due to other causes. Anyway it needs further evaluation...
With regards,
Dr. Parthipan

Welcome to HCM.
Blood in urine with pain is suggestive of stones or infection in the urinary tract.
She has to see a doctor asap, before things get serious.
