After a ct scan Of the kidneys I was told I have cystic chronic and stable changes in the kidneys. What does this mean? I also have had frequent uti infections. Can this be related?? Thank you

The test did mention that I have mild hydronephrosis on the right kidney and moderate on the left with no nephrolithiasis or perinephic fluid. I had upj surgery on the right kidney three years ago. What does this mean? Thanks
This could be an indication that the kidney is chronically dilated from the UPJ obstruction that you had for years. I'm not sure what's going on with the other side of your kidney, but it sounds like you need to see your urologist to consider doing a renal scan test to see if you have blockage of the kidneys again. This is the only thing that can delineate what is going on. Hope this helps.

I have been on cipro 500 mg for ten days. I have one pill left but still fill the urge to urinate frequently. Can the cipro cause this?? I honestly hate this medicine!! I have had some dizziness from it, stomach upset and a realky dry mouth!!
No. The cipro would not be causing the urge to urinate. That is a sign if a persistent infection that may require a different antibiotic. You should see your doctor to determine if you need a new urine culture and antibiotic.
