I am a 42 year old woman who has had several uti's, bladder infections, and 9 kidney stones in the last 7 years. I had a younger sister who was born with cysts on her kidneys and died within the first few hours of birth. My family has never had any genetic work done so I don't know if pkd is in my family. My father is deceased (cancer) and my mother has no symptoms of pkd. I have recently started to have pain in my right flank with nausea but this is a different pain that almost feels like a burning sensation (very deep) and hurts with the more activity I do. I have always had micro. blood in my urine but my doctors cant find an explanation. So, if my sister died of cysts on her kidneys and I have had a history of kidney issues is there a possibility I may have pkd? Any suggestion or advice would be greatly appreciated.
