Patient Comments: Hydronephrosis - Cause

What was the cause of your hydronephrosis?

Comment from: Anna, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: February 07

I had a cystoscopy done and the doctor caused a lesion of the ureter and calyx rupture. Another doctor was called and he put a stent from my kidney to my bladder. After the removal of the stent I was okay. But the CT shows hydronephrosis. After 7 weeks I still have pain in my flank. I'm now wondering if the hydronephrosis could have been caused by the rupture and the damage they did during the cystoscopy.

For my mom it was scar tissue blocking the tube.

Pregnancy was the cause of my hydronephrosis. I was 20 weeks pregnant & went into premature labor. It was later discovered that I had severe hydronephrosis of the right kidney. I had surgery for stint placement, but my daughter was born 8 weeks early.
