Here are some ...: Your feeling inflammation in right kidney needs to be objectively confirm with detailed Hx, physical exam, and urine test. In fact, most likely, what you have felt may be just muscle ache, and drinking a lot of water merely forces you to urinate more often. Flomax (tamsulosin) is to help relax and open the bladder neck and prostate urethra so you may see better urine flow but nothing to do with inflammation.
