You'll be OK: Clarify: you had a full bladder and were superhumanly able to not pee for a day, or you just weren't making a lot of urine? For scenario #1, you emptied your bladder in time to avoid kidney damage, and for scenario #2, you started to make urine again, so your kidneys are working. Try to avoid both. Stay well hydrated and keep the pee moving along to prevent both infection and kidney damage.
