Common Questions and Answers about Avodart and kidney stones

avodart

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.
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.
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......

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.
I wear briefs and dress pants and have for 25 years. I don't always notice it and it isn't always there. But it is definately real. I have no idea what this is.
