I'm 35 female have a sickle cell trait. For the passed 10 years suffered with uti and pain in my kidney. I've done lots of research and we are more prone to more things than they tell us research is only letting us know now. That my sickle cell trait the little c shape in my blood can be damaging my kidney and causing my pain . I've been told my right kidneys not working and the tube from its dilated because its made its self bigger trying to work. I'm due to see a urologist on Friday and going to print all the research I found . Type in Google complications associated with carrying a sickle cell trait. We are more at risk or damage to the kidney liver and spleen. As we cant give blood as we so call brake the machines this C shape isn't good for us and can cause sicklein and damage are organs,but cause pain episodes, trouble with anesthetic. My doctor never told me but when I see my urologist I'll have all the test done and ask lots of questions as I'm certain its my trait that has caused this. I'll get back in a few weeks and update. Start to listen to your body and fill your minds with knowledge xx
