I had a kidney biopsy performed on Monday. I stayed over night for monitoring and when I awoke on Tuesday morning my doctor told me that I had to stay an additional day because my hemoglobin was low. I also had a ct scan done that showed peri-nephric hematoma (bleeding around my kidney). However, by Wednesday morning my hemoglobin level was back to normal without any intervention.
All the post-biopsy testimonials that I have read report little to no pain and being able to leave the same day. I have now missed an entire week of work and I am still in a lot of pain.
What have everyone else's experiences been with kidney biopsies? Did anyone else experience persistent pain following the procedure? I just need a piece of mind!
