Serious disease is a major disease, which not only costs a lot of money, but also takes a long time to treat. Of course, serious illness has a great impact on the patient’s health and the whole family. Many people think that hydronephrosis is a great threat to health. So, is hydronephrosis a serious disease?
Hydronephrosis is staged. In the early stage of hydronephrosis, that is to say, there is no infection or other pathological changes at the same time. Hydronephrosis is not a serious disease. However, many hydronephrosis will be complicated with infection. Once the kidney function is endangered, it is a serious disease, which must be taken seriously. Otherwise, it will cause irreparable damage to the kidney.
Hydronephrosis must be treated early. If the treatment is not timely, it will cause an increase in the amount of hydronephrosis, which will lead to more serious consequences. It can be said that it will continuously damage the renal function. Over time, this will have a great impact on the renal function, which will seriously lead to complete loss of renal function.
If hydronephrosis occurs on both sides, the treatment should be targeted, and for one side with severe hydronephrosis, the treatment should be done first. If the hydronephrosis on both sides is not very serious, that is, relatively mild, it needs to be analyzed well before treatment can be carried out. For particularly serious cases, nephrectomy for hydronephrosis can be performed when necessary.
