Hello, I have one atrophic kidney and the other kidney is compensating for this and is now 15.6 cm in size and emptying slowly. After tests and scans I was told that the ureter has a bend in it and the renal pelvis is distended. This was found out a year ago and no medical staff actually did anything about it other than test my bloods, do ultrasounds and a nuclear tracer to find out my situation, but nothing has been actually done. When I saw the nephrologist she said I was ok, come back in seven months, the urologist said, I had hydronephrosis, come back in four months, he said that he would operate and cut some of the ureter out, reattach it, put a tube in and a catheter but he will discuss it further in four months. If hydronephrosis has already killed off my left kidney, surely if I have only the other one left and that has problems, shouldnt I be seen earlier and have something done before this one is permanently damaged???? my bloods were all good, my function in the kidney is 96% but its 20 percent slower in emptying than it should be - why would they leave me so long?? obvioiusly I am going back to find out but would like some feedback or opinions. Thank you.
