Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

I am sorry you had this stone and blockage of your kidneys.

dark red urine can be from severe dehydration and lack of kidney urine flow and rhabdomyolysis break down of proteins in your blood from not enough fluids and kidney flow.

you need to drink much much more water and urinate more frequently to help flush out the kidney stone and help hydrate your kidneys.

how old are you?

are you on antibiotics now for the infection in your urine?
