Second test: You may have a resistant infection. Call your physician and get a repeat urine analysis and culture. If you are having unprotected intercourse, get screened for STD exposure.

See gastroenterology: Even though your gall badder was removed, it is possible to develop and try to pass more stones. A GI doctor can use a scope to get small stones out. If your fever gets above 101 or you can't keep anything down, go to the er. It is a little too long after the surgery to develop complications but strange things can happen.

Need more work up: None of the things you mention should be related to eye pain in my experience. See an ophthalmologist to explore things that could be related to the eye pain part, but you really need a reason for the swollen spleen, testicular pain and weight loss more than just a ct scan and blood work. Every city has what i call the "zebra" doctor. We have a saying that the thunder of hooves should be horses.

BIopsies : Biopsies are not often used to diagnose kidney tumors. The imaging studies you underwent (ct scan and mri) can provide sufficient information for a surgeon to decide if an operation is needed.
A ct scan is one of the most useful imaging studies for detected kiney tumors because it gives the surgeon detailed/precise information in terms of size, location and shape of the tumor. A ct scan can also help to determine if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. An MRI provides detailed images of the soft tissue and vessels in the body and can also be helpful in determining if the cancer has spread.
Biopsies are only done on kidney tumors if the information provided in a ct scan was inconclusive. Your surgeon has enough information from the imaging studies to make valid recommendations for surgery.
