Re: !!!!!!!!PLEASE HELP!!!!!! (kidney removal)

I can't comment on the stop and start of urine flow, but needing the laxative is more than likely due to the anasthetic, and not the kidney. Anasthesia is really tough on the system and causes all sorts of side effects including vomiting and bowel problems. Have you talked to the docs? What do they say?

You were right it was due to the drugs that they gave, thank you so much for commenting back.
