In brief: If your urine

color is brown, then it is very possible that you may have kidney damage from the rhabdomyolysis and your kidneys have seriously weakened.
Brown color in urine may denote bleeding or presence of red blood cells which would be leaked from bloodstream into the urine. This is a potentially serious condition (glomerulonephritis). Please see a healthcare provider or proceed to Emergency Room ASAP.
