There may be an issue with obstruction of the ureter at the ureterovesicular junction (the connection of the ureter to the bladder). This can occur due to a problem with the valve of the bladder.
I would recommend you continue to follow up with a urologist. Further imaging studies can help evaluate for this obstruction.
