Customer Question

I had blood in my urine so I went to a urologist. He sent me for a CT scan which showed kidney cysts (small ones). I have a f/u appt on Tuesday, but I'm in a lot of pain and its difficult to pass urine, although I feel like I need to try every ten minutes. Im wondering whether to go to the ER. My husband says not to unless I can't stand it because I'll just wait 4 hours and there won't be a urologist there. I see his point, but I'm near the end of my rope!
JA: Anything in this area seems awkward and painful so I really trust our Expert will find a solution for you fast. Is there anything else important you think the Urologist should know?
Customer: Pain is on left side where kidney should be.
JA: Our top Urologist is ready to take your case. Just pay the $5 fully refundable deposit and I'll fill the Urologist in on everything we've discussed. You can go back and forth with the Urologist until you're 100% satisfied. We guarantee it.

I had a test to see if it was a bladder infection but it was negative.

So where is the pain that you have?

Left side right where kidney should be.

Did you have the CT scan done when you had the pain?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, I had no pain at the time, just blood in the urine. That was about 3 weeks ago. The pain started about 10 days ago. My doctor can't see me until Tuesday, so I've tried to be patient, but it's pretty hard.
