Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Do an ultrasound and check the diameter of each kidney. Also do a renal function test. If the diameter is less than 15 mm and renal function is not impaired, we can manage conservatively with antibiotics and frequent monitoring. If the diameter is increased and renal function is abnormal, we have to go for surgical correction. As of now continue both the antibiotics to prevent infections.

Wishing you good health.

Thanks.

My partner and I have been together about 5 times, and he has orgasmed only on 2 of those occasions. Both times there was no semen. On 2 other occasions, while close to climaxing, he went soft. He states this has been normal for him. He had a history of drug and alcohol abuse, but has been clean/ sober for 3 years. do you have any suggestions.

Hello Doctor Grief; my name is Richard Hartsfield, from Alabama. I am a 61 year old veteran and I have been suffering chronic pain (90% arthritic), amongst other things. My doctors at the V.A. in Birmingham, Alabama have been looking after my needs until 16 to 20 months ago. I was told by my doctor at the V.A. that he was being mandated by his SUPERIORES that he was to start the process of taking myself along with all other Veterans that eventually practically all Vets would not be getting any narcotic pain relievers I was fortunate to have an old high school buddy who is a physician refer me to another physician who would see to my needs. I take anywhere from 150 to 170m.g. s of methadone for a long time and am afraid that ,(well I,m afraid that for some unforseeable reason, that I won t be able to get the meds I need. I am a caretaker for my 86 year old mother and it is a gut wrenching thing to watch her slowly die a little each day. To make a long storey short, I am looking ahead and will eventually need my pain meds (legally) each month without the stress of worrying if I will be able to get my meds. Respectfully, Richard Hartsfield

doctor1 MD

I have joint pain and use hydocodone - 10 milliigrams each day only and tramadol , only because it was prescribed in 1985 and probably withdrawal may be severe, Celebrex helps a great deal but I may have kidney problems as a result. my non-regular...
