Earlier she had stones in gall bladder and in result doctor removed gall bladder. And now general physician is saying that the tumour is just a wound in internal part of kidney due to stones. But she feels some vigorous pain three to four times a day in long intervals in her left side of head and she doubts that the pain is due to the tumour in kidney. So what can we do now.

Acute Renal Failure- What it is?
Acute renal failure is a condition that develops when the kidneys lose their ability to filter out wastes, excess fluids and salts from the blood stream. Eliminating these wastes forms the basic core of the kidney’s functioning. When this happens, the bodily fluids start to accumulate and may exceed alarming levels. As a result of this condition, the body’s electrolyte levels can go awry, thus posing a potential life threatening situation for the patient.
Also called ‘acute kidney injury’, this condition mostly affects patients who have been admitted in hospitals and nursing homes since an extended period of time. It might take several weeks or even months for this condition to manifest. However, in a few cases, acute kidney failure can also happen over a matter of a few hours.
Critically ill patients or people who require intensive critical care are at the maximum risk of developing this condition.
The good part is that this condition is certainly reversible. However, it usually requires intensive treatment.
How is Acute Renal Failure Caused?
- Acute kidney failure can occur for many reasons. Among the most common reasons are:
- acute tubular necrosis (ATN)
- severe or sudden dehydration
- toxic kidney injury from poisons or certain medications
- autoimmune kidney diseases, such as acute nephritic syndrome and interstitial nephritis
- urinary tract obstruction
- Reduced blood flow can damage your kidneys. The following conditions can lead to decreased blood flow to your kidneys:
- Certain disorders can cause clotting within your kidney’s blood vessels, and this can lead to acute kidney failure. These conditions include:
- Some infections, such as septicemia and acute pyelonephritis, can directly injure your kidneys.
- Pregnancy can also cause complications that harm the kidneys, including placenta previa and placenta abruption.
What are the risk factors?
Age is definitely the primary risk factor in case of acute renal failure. Other risk factors include:
Often times, susceptibility increases with the time one has spent in the ICU of a nursing home. Bone marrow transplant and surgeries of the heart and/or the abdomen can drastically up the risks.
What are the common symptoms?
The common symptoms include:
- Bloody stools
- Foul odor in breath
- Sluggish and slow movements
- Tremors of the hands
- Easy bruising
- Fluid accumulation and retention
- Hip pain and pain between the ribs
- Fatigue and nausea
- High BP count
- Reduced appetite
- Reduced sensation, especially in the hands and the extremities
