Forum Name: Urinary tract infections

Question: enlarged kidney


 middleton - Wed May 02, 2007 10:51 am

I am a 36 year old female. I have had 2 c-sections tubal, gallbladder, lower groin hernia, hysterectomy(leaving left ovary) in surgeries. Years ago I had a procedure where the light was run into my bladder. After going through several test thinking something was wrong with my liver, they found I have a enlarged kidney(right). The other night in my sleep I woke up to find myself in a puddle of urine. When I stood up it still would not stop and I kept urinating for almost ten minutes. What causes this? I am on no medications. No family history of bldder or kidney cancer. When I had my bladder checked years ago it was to check for cancer.

User avatar I cannot explain your symptoms well. It is possible that you had a distended bladder that subsequently needed to empty; however, generally people are able to control their urinary stream.

If this happens again I would suggest you see your urologist again.

Sorry I'm not of more help.

Best wishes.
