Common Questions and Answers about Avodart and kidney stones

avodart

Avatar m tn I have a history of kidney stones and already have another calcium deposit that has developed in my left kidney (just 5 months after lithotripsy!). I also suffer from low testosterone and GERD and take Testim and Nexium, daily. Does anyone have any ideas? Is there such a thing as a hernia that can't be seen on ulrasound? Can a back injury cause these symptoms (the middle of my back has hurt during all this time, but only when in certain positions. Dead center, on spine.
Avatar m tn I have also had a VCUG to check my bladder, lithotripsy to remove a large kidney stone from my left kidney, an MRI of my pelvis and abdomen, a CT scan of my pelvis and abdomen, lasix renal scan and cytoscopy of my penis (which showed a ring a scar tissue in my urethra). In the middle of all this, I was diagnosed with Bacterial Prostatitis and was put on Cipro for 30 days with no effect. I was then diagnosed with Chronic Prostatitis and put on Avodart (still taking) with no effect.
Avatar n tn My urologist has me scheduled for an ultrasound to see if kidney stones may be present. I am also on flomax, avodart and prilosec. Could this pain be a result of the medication and an enlarged prostate, or a combination of all? He feels confident no cancer is involved after doing several tests (digital exam, PSA of 2.4 and cystoscopy). Just curious of another opinion. Thanks......
Avatar m tn That's the issue. The Valtrex has stopped nearly all symptoms in two days. No other med I tried in the past months did anything like this. Antiinflamatories, painkillers, antibiotics, herbal stuff, nothing worked. So that's why I am fearing this is herpes actually. My uro looked for kidney stones. None. They said it was a "left over" pain from UTI and it'd go away. It didn't. They said it was all psychological, but not even relaxation helped.

Avatar n tn i head for some info thru a nurse friend and told me stuff like liver and kidney problem and a hint of std. but after i read all the so similar stories here, im relieved but still worries a little. there a side of this incident that teaches me to practice more on safe sex, i believe that everythings happens for a reason, and the message for me is to look after my health more, limit encounters and practice safe sex..thanks heavens.....
Avatar m tn I get a CT Scan every 6 months and have 4 stones in left kidney and 2 in right kidney. Please read my post about kidney stones (says something like Kidney Stone & this is my story) cause I need someone to talk too or someone that is or has gone through all this agony. You will understand if you go to my post. Thanks for listening/reading. I have been through several urologist & they just don't know.
