Fluid behind right kidney
An_250169 posted:
So I know that no one but my doctor can actually tell me why I have fluid behind my right kidney but today my doctor called me after my appointment to let me know that the tenderness I have been feeling is being caused my fluid behind my right kidney but she did not tell me how this happened or what will have to be done about this. So basically I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight into possible causes for this as well as possible solutions to this. Thanks in advance.
