Chemotherapy Side Effects: Kidneys and Bladder
Let your doctor know if you have any symptoms that might be a sign of a problem. Watch for these signs and symptoms:
- Pain or burning when you urinate.
- Urinating a lot.
- A feeling that you must urinate right away.
- Reddish or bloody urine (Some chemo drugs will change the color of your urine. Tell your doctor or nurse if this happens).
Drink plenty of fluids to ensure good urine flow and help prevent problems. Water, juice, coffee, tea, soup, soft drinks, broth, ice cream, popsicles, and gelatin also count as fluids.
