What is it?
When your urine can’t flow (either partially or completely) through your ureter, bladder, or urethra due to some type of obstruction. Instead of flowing from your kidneys to your bladder, urine flows backward, or refluxes, into your kidneys, is called bladder obstruction. It can cause swelling and other damage to one or both of your kidneys.
What are the symptoms?
The onset can be slow and progressive or quick and acute. * Fever * Nausea * Vomiting * Swelling, tenderness in kidneys * A change in your urinary habits can indicate a blockage in your ureters. * Difficulty passing urine * A slowed stream, sometimes described as a “dribble” * A frequent urge to urinate, especially at night (nocturia) * The feeling that your bladder isn’t empty * Decreased urine output * Blood in your urine
Things to watch out for
Call 000 or go to an emergency department in case of complete urinary outlet obstruction. In case of partial obstruction , visit your GP for further evaluation
