In brief: Yes

A bladder obstruction can present from stones or blood in the bladder. If left untreated, this condition can lead to infection and reflux of urine back into the kidney causing enlargement of the kidney (hydronephrosis) and renal collapse (renal failure).
Your kidneys are vital to survival, and you think that you may have an obstruction, please get it checked out right away!
