So the doctors would put in a nephrostomy to reroute the urine, meanwhile they could...

Organs, like most of the intestine, that are almost completely  invested by peritoneum are connected to the body wall by a  mesentery. Other viscera, however, such as the kidneys, are  retroperitoneal; i.e., they lie on the posterior abdominal wall and  are covered by peritoneum only anteriorly.
No pee is not smart, this is common sense and knowledge to know. Pee is not a living organism so it has no brain nor any other things to make it "smart".
In humans, the renal pelvis is the point of convergence of two or  three major calyces. Each renal papilla is surrounded by a  branch of the renal pelvis called a calyx. The major function of  the renal pelvis is to act as a funnel for urine flowing to the  ureter.
The Urethra. The opening to the urethra is just below the clitoris. It is not related to sex or reproduction, but is instead is the passage for urine. The urethra is connected to the bladder.
Pessaries are devices sometimes used to help with bladder prolapsein women.
The bladder wall is the outside of the bladder, the organ thatstores urine.
  Function     * Ultrafiltiration: the process by which fluid is filtered out of the blood by the glomerulus.  * The blood pressure in a glomerulus causes part of the blood plasma to leak through the capillary walls. The red blood cells and plasma proteins are too big to pass out of...
The smallest functional and    structural unit of kidney is called as -
Urine is the body's way of eliminating fluid waste products. Urine contains waste or excess materials and toxic substances. Urine's main content is water. In fact 95 per cent of the urine excreted is water. The other major and common constituents are sodium - 0.4 per cent, ammonia - 0.05 per cent,...
It will be taken in when you breathe and then goes into your lungs.  From there the blood will carry it to the various parts of the  body.
Why People Pee It is to get rid of urea, which is toxic to the body if too much of it is in the bloodstream. Urea is formed from the deamination of excess amino acids in the body, a nutrient that makes up protein. It is also to get rid of excess salts, which can dehydrate a person. And not to...

The kidney's clean your blood. They are responsible for removing urea from the blood (changing it to urine), adjusting ion levels in your blood and adjusting the water content of your blood. They need to do this because urea is poisonous and the levels of the other substances I mentioned need to be...
probably not because glucose is being used in your body for movement etc. so it's not going out
Yes,because it causes big problems.
Not necessarily. It has acid in it and is a waste product, but drinking small amounts of it would not likely kill you. Of course, drinking it is not something that should be done.

The filtering unit of the kidney is the nephrons.
  Lethargy, unwillingness to eat, increased urination, increased drinking. Bloodwork: urine specific gravity < 1.030 (shows only after 60% dysfunction), elevated BUN coupled with elevated creatinine (shows only after 75% dysfunction), elevated phosphorus level (causes nausea)

The urinary bladder has a canal-like opening called urethra,through which urine is eliminated from the body.
Originally at Plate Boundaries.
That is where the stones are "supposed to go", but on the way they lodge in the kidneys or more commonly the ureter, which leads from the kidneys. Breaking up or releasing the stone allows it to travel to the bladder, where it can be excreted from the body through the urethra (a much larger...
Urine production is complicated and would take several lessons to describe. The link below may be useful: Basically, the body uses fluids to make many physical and chemical functions work properly. These are all regulated by feedback mechanisms. For example, the small intestines pulls fluid into...

It is blood plasma that lacks most proteins. First, bear in mind that the process that occurs here is ultrafiltration. It is a non-selective process, and molecules smaller than a predetermined size passes through a membrane. Increase in concentration of waste products will occur only starting at the...
The urea in urine (yours or somebody else's) is poisonous so if you drink enough urine you will harm yourself. It may make you die and if you drink it, spit it out FAST.
Older rabbits especially can develop problems with their kidneys. Signs of developing problems are the bunny not drinking/drinking excessively. This is normally the first sign many rabbit keepers will see. There are now starting to be more ways that vets can treat kidney diseases in rabbits, so...
