| | Hernia/Kidney Problems?
Two weeks ago, I began having bladder pressure and pain and assumed I had an infection. After repeated urine/blood tests, all was normal except for a trace amount of blood in one test and a higher than normal blood pressure. At the same time, I noticed a huge lump in my lower abdomen that turned out to be a hernia. A week after this, I experienced a night of extreme pain in my lower right side back and low right side abdomen. The bladder pressure feeling disappeared the next day. Right now, I have a slight feeling of pressure in my low back and some slight badder pressure that usually clears up after drinking lots of water. I've had a CT scan and IVP both with normal results. My doctor claims the hernia isn't related to my bladder or kidney, could she be wrong?
