on the 1st of march i was taken into hospital with a severe kidney infection and a fever of 40.5oc.
i was discharged after 6 days, but after another week i got the same infection again but not as bad. i have been for ultrasounds, x-rays and a ct(cat) scan.
the only thing that i have been told is that my right kidney is enlarged and that there is a small lesion in it.
luckily i have not had another infection since the second one but i still get re-occuring pain in both my kidneys.
could anybody help me with what could be causing these problems.

  • Hi,Have you been checked for any diseases? Auto-immune diseases, diabetes, anything? It would probably be useful to see a kidney specialist...kidney problems are painful and really can become a big problem.Shula
