Breaking 4 ribs was the trauma that triggered it, no reason to question that.
wHEN i WAS FIRST TAKEN TO ER when I fell (couldn't get up) the rude crude Xray crew did not find any broken bones. weak pain killer nad muscle relaxer and sent home.
When my urine turned dark and stayed dark more than one void, I KNEW that was nothing to play with. So I got back to ER pronto, no waiting around. Since I had been unable to get out of my recliner on my own, I was using a washed plastic jar. I made sure that sample went with me to ER. When they saw the sample, it was obvious something more traumatic happened. So back to Xray and a nice good Xray crew re-did the Xray's and found the 5 broken ribs no problem.
My kidney function is not too erratic, but its not stable either. That from my understanding makes the eGFR formula unreliable, states that right in the lab reports.
I was drinking plenty of water, but voiding a lot as well, but I kept my diabetes in good control. Weird?
