Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.
I am truly sorry to hear about the loss of your infant daughter.

Hydronephrosis is the swelling of a kidney due to a build-up of urine. It happens when urine cannot drain out from the kidney to the bladder from a blockage or obstruction. Hydronephrosis can occur in one or both kidneys.

Urinary tract infections and other infections that cause inflammation to the urinary tract can cause hydronephrosis.

Hydronephrosis is usually treated by addressing the underlying disease or cause, such as a kidney stone or infection. Some cases can be resolved without surgery. Infections can be treated with antibiotics. A kidney stone can pass through by itself or might be severe enough to require removal with surgery.

The key to treatment is to get it addressed as soon as possible in order to avoid any permanent damage to the kidneys.
