Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. A drop in urine output which occurs suddenly is extremely concerning. Given that you only have one kidney that means that you could be developing renal failure. This can be due to either decreased hydration or even an infection in the kidneys. If your urine output has been less than 500 ml in 24 hours that indicates that you need IMMEDIATE evaluation. Secondly, this can also be due to simple dehydration which could cause your body to conserve water and you to urinate less. If this is dehydration then you need immediate rehydration therapy which should be adminstered in the ER ASAP. regardless of teh cause, given that you have one kidney, i would STRONGLY urge you to go to the ER ASAP to have this evaluated. Early treatment can reverse impending renal failure and save the kidney and that is why you have to go to the ER now.
