  1. I am 11year old boy and I have seen red coloured urine like as blood in this week sometimes suddenly about three days but now urine is normal. In ultrasonography report doctor told me about hydronephrosis. Tell me what type of treatment should be done

  2. Dealt with this when I was seventeen. Woke up with my side killing me. I slept in an odd place in an odd position, so at first I assumed it was normal backache. It progressively got worse. Eventually I had to go to the bathroom and the deep red color of my urine was shocking. I was out when this occurred. I tried to drive myself to the hospital, but the pain became so great I couldn’t go on and called an ambulance. I was put under to scope my bladder and kidney and woke up later.

    Upon waking, I had to use the bathroom BADLY. My right flank still ached, albeit less. I had to sit. Not understanding my bladder was pumped with air, what happened at first was concerning, but eventually I relieved myself successfully. However, partway through, I passed a thick blood clot. It turned out that had blocked the ureter and my right kidney could not drain effectively into my bladder until extreme pressure forced bloody urine by.

    I never hope to deal with that ever again
