Internal Medicine - Nephrology & Dialysis
In brief: Poss kidney loss
Chronic retention of urine, if not relieved, will back up flow into the kidney and over time shut the kidney down.
If the problem is related to the bladder, it may affect both kidneys due to back up of urine flow to block both kidneys.
