Hi,

Hydronephrosis is nothing but fluid collection in kidneys. It is quite common after surgical procedures and in your case, it is mild and will settle in a couple of weeks. No treatment is required. Wishing you good health.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I was dispensed the wrong medication by Boots. I had been taking 100mg atenolol daily instead of 100mg of allopurinol for gout. I ended up in hospital bradycardic and, apparently, very close to an M.I. I only have one remaining kidney with mild hydronephrosis.I only took 2 doses and the last one I took was last Wednesday evening. I keeping getting a very lethargic, dizzy and going quite pale, whenever I get up to do something. Is it still normal to feel unwell after 5 days without taking the drug. I realise the half-life of atenolol is only 6 hours, so I am rather worried as to why I am still feeling similarly to how I was last week.
