Re: Need answers quickly. Too worried!
I just had this problem. I had a mucosal growth /tumor blocking my ureter from draining my kidney into my bladder. I had surgery a week later, out patient. The urologist explained it like it was nothing serious, then later told me my kidney could have died.
The surgery done was called a TURBT. I just had follow up testing yesterday and after 3 weeks my ureter isn't as distended. But, I now have kidney pain from bladder reflux.
If this sounds familiar or similar, I will be happy to share some more information on what to expect, healing time, etc.
Don't panic. You'll be okay!
