Hello there,Please be patient, as I may be in the operating room, with a patient, or driving but will get back to you ASAP.I think the first thing you need done is to have an X-ray of your kidney such as a ct scan. This can make sure there is not some sort of new blockage causing this. You should otherwise not be in so much pain. This is rare. It makes me think there may have been some damage to the kidney possibly during the surgery although those surgeries do not cause this. Do an X-ray next. If this is normal, you may need some injections in the area of the back And kidney to improve pain. Hope this helps.
