What is your age?

How much urine have you passed in last 24 hours?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
84. Not more than 3 or 4 oz
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
All fine until after the surgery. I'm told they were going to use a dye that was hard on the kidneys.
Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 5 months ago

This is too less. Minimum amount of urine passed in 24 hours should be more that 500 ml.

You should report this to your doctor.

You may be dehydrated.

Dye may be the culprit.

The swelling at the IV site may not be worrying as mild thrombophlebitis is common and cause swelling.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

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.

I have a lower back issue., i had a accident at work anyway
I have a lower back issue., i had a accident at work anyway I've had 4 surgeries since ive had disc removal, fusions and removal of the back spinal bones to allow swelling of my spinal cord. I am having problems (8 yrs since accident) and I'm still fighting with insurers, i live on medication, morphine, oxycodone etc etc purges that are suppose to affect the nervous system so on and so on. I had a mri a week ago i haven't seen the gp but i have a copy on disc and have gone through them. Above my fusions the next disc is bulging but i also have dead discs 4 levels higher i get all that. They will probably mean anorher load of surgery. But what is worrying is in my vertebra at l4 level there seems to be a black spot. On side view you can see it on mri but in picture s in slice it appears also. Its a dark slot off centre. Epithelial you have a idea what it could be. Can you get cancer there? Is it a infection or is it something different? ( its been 21 months since last surgery) … read more
