Polycystic Kidney Dsease

Posted by @harlandahl in Kidney & Bladder, Jun 29, 2013

I have lived with PKD for many years. About 2 years ago, I was in a Whirlpool and I had the jets concentrating on my lower back (kidney area). That night I encountered severe pain and went to the ER overnight with a burst kidney cyst. I speculated that it was due to the jets. My physician thought it was just coincidence. Has anybody else had either a whirlpool incident or a blow to the kidneys that caused a cyst to burst?

I have been in a jacuzzi wih the jets blowing on my back the kidney area. I do have a lot of pain in this area. I have had a transplant going on 7 yrars in April 2014. I thought this pain would go away by now. My doctor thinks it's just muscular because my kidney have quit completely by now. Have you ever had flank pain?
