Is it dangerous to hold your urine in too long?

i was in a situation i could not get out of one morning. i had to urinate bad. had to hold it for about 2 hours. the last hour was pretty bad. the last half hour extremely bad. im sure this is not healthy, but what negative things could happen as a result of this? this is the only time i have had to hold my urine for that long.

please advise.

Yes it can be dangerous.  It can cause something called Acute Hydronephrosis where the back pressure can dialate your ureters or damage your kidneys.
