obstruction in left kidney, what to do?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Jason Kline
19 years experience Nephrology and Dialysis
See a urologist: An acute obstruction requires urgent referral to a urologist who can identify the source of the obstruction and effectively treat it. Left alone for too long, a urinary tract obstruction can lead to permanent loss of kidney function. Don't let this wait too long to be treated.
