Do you know if there is a large hematoma (blood) around the kidney itself (subcapsular hematoma)?

OK.

Since you are offline, I'll leave the answer here.

Basically, the resolution of pain often depends on how much bleeding there was in the area around the kidney.

When there is bleeding around the kidney, which stretches the capsule that surrounds the kidney -- there is often pretty severe pain in that area.

So, in general, it often takes a couple of weeks to several weeks for the pain to improve back to normal (depending on how much bleeding there was). But as the blood is reabsorbed, the pain should improve. With the accident only 6 days ago, it is expected that there is still a fair amount of pain, but this should improve over the next few weeks.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
