Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones in the appendix

kidney-stones

It doesn't sound like your appendix I had to have mine removed and it wasn't what you are describing, but it does sound like kidney stones maybe or a cyst I would advise you to see a doctor while they probably can't fix the issue they can help with the pain.

The stone in the appendix? Well this doesn't sound very healthy if you want a smart answer. Your gallbladder was checked for stones?
Further tests were done and it was discovered that my right kidney was very small, scarred and only working 11%, it also contained numerous small stones. So it was suggested that this may be the cause of my pain, my kidney was removed 6 weeks ago laparascopicaly and surprise surprise the pain is still there. I'm not sure where to go from here...I'm beginning to think my doctors think I'm faking it!!!
I was born with a condition that causes my body to create kidney stones. I have been to the emergency room 4 or 5 times in the past 18 years for the large stones, small ones pass ok. My first stone caused bleeding and severe back pain also with pain in the lower abdomen area along with hot/cold flashes and vomiting. It may feel like someone is squeezing your kidney while at the same time stabbing it with an ice pick. I first though it was my appendix. I was wrong. Water, water, water.
small stones are one and the same thing and the pain which you had could likely be due to one of the passing stones in the ureter. The best treatment is a regular consumption of fluids. They tend to wash away these stones. A lot of my patients have passed these small stones after a few glasses of beer. Remember to drink a glass of water before going to bed as the maximum concentration of urine takes place at night. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
I've searched the internet and found that kidney stones and salt deposits are the same thing. He said the pain in my abdomen was probably due to one of the deposits passing. He said that the pain that I 'think' is in my right kidney is more than likely my back. Can somebody please help me? I've tried so many doctors here, and not a single one of them can give me a straight answer that checks with Western medicine. The joys of living abroad...
I know this probably isn't the best forum for this but I know all of you and trust you. Also, others have posted about kidney stones here in the past. I have a terrible pain on my right flank. I wake up with it and it only gets worse as the day wears on. It is going on a week now. I've been more nauseated than usual. I also have more severe pain in the bladder and groin area. My Lortab aren't even touching this. I am still on my feet but just barely.. I drink lots of water.
I was at my local YMCA swimming, when i stopped i went to bathroom and peed and i had intense pain near my appendix of the front right side of my body, it was accompanied by blood. It hurt around that area for a while like 1-2 days then went away. Then i came home and i saw more blood in pee but without pain. I peed one more time normally. I had bloodwork done and urine test later after like weeks and everything was fine. Any clue what it could have been i am male 15 years old.

I've been having a lot of pain on my right side, front, back and side and the pain takes my breath away. I had CT scans and ultra sound to determine if I had kidney stones. Then they sent me for x-rays with contrast and I was told I had a floating Kidney. The nurse for his office said there was nothing that I could do for the pain. "Just deal with it". Wow how can I when the pain takes my breath away and the pain is so bad that I have to lay down in bed until it goes away.
My first thought was kidney stone, too. couldn even be a kidney infection. you definitely need to be evaluated, the sooner the better.
Crohn’s disease, diverticulitis, infection in kidney, kidney stones, constipation, ovary involvement in women, ectopic pregnancy in women, mesentry (a thin tissue that carries the blood, nerves and lymphatics for the intestine) involvement, and an abscess in rectus abdominis muscle or psoas muscle can all cause lower right abdomen pain. Hence these causes should be eliminated by a CT scan of the abdomen. Crohn’s disease is a difficult entity to diagnose.

DOCTORS are smart, but when they dont experience the pain for themselves and it doesnt follow the text book, sometimes they just dont get it!!! I too have recurring kidney stones, The last one I had was in the left kidney and was non obstructing,so Doc left it alone. That was 8 months ago. I dont even know if I passed it or if its still there. The reason for this is because BOTH my kidneys ache dully on and off from time to time and I get some sharp stabs as well from time to time.
Up to 20% of adults with kidney stones may have medullary sponge kidney; the corresponding figure in children is unknown. Among patients with kidney stones, hypercalciuria may occur in 40-50%, and recurrent gross hematuria may occur in 10-20%. Although no evidence indicates that risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs) is higher in patients with medullary sponge kidney, up to 5% of males and 35% of females have a UTI.
that will descend into the abdomen, but are rarely diagnosed because when the person lays down for CT scans and ultrasounds, the kidney settles in its normal place. Has anyone had experiene with this or have any advice on how to convince a doctor I am not crazy?
Is there a way to get a written standard of care on diagnosing kidney stones from a recognized authority such as the American Medical Association or the American Urological Association? Thank you.
Kick back and relax as much as possible, keep up the fluids for the kidney stones, and try not to worry. Hope this helped a bit.

His nurse did tell me before we left that their was a small Kidney stone in each Kidney, but that was not probably causing any problems yet. Also, the Gall Bladder has a "sandy sludge" in it. I went home and that night the pain got worse. I could hardly walk or even move because of the pain. I thought I may be passing one of the stones. At about 9:00 I went back to the Emergency Room and they found that my Appendix was ruptured (different Emergency Room Doctor).
I had many more attacks, the pain is always on my right side by my hip, it shoots down my leg. The pain continued even when they said I had no more stones. In Feb. 2008 the specialist said I had sponge kidneys. At that time I stopped eating chocolate and wheat. Although I felt the pain a bit I was pretty much attack free from Feb 08 - Oct 08. At which time I was in ER again. I had severe pain in my right side by my hip, constipation and naseau.
Kidney stones are certainly a possibility. This is more likely if there was blood on the urinalysis. The best test to evaluate for stones would be a non-contrast CT scan, and this certainly can be considered. Regarding the abdominal pain and gas, a contrast CT scan of the abdomen can be considered, looking at the appendix or diverticulitis. I would also consider a lower endoscopy (i.e. colonoscopy) looking for inflammatory bowel disease, or any masses.
I have been to the emergency room 4 times in the past 18 years for the large stones, small ones pass ok. Although I am a male I understand very well the pain you may be in. My first stone caused bleeding and severe back pain also with pain in the lower abdomen area along with hot/cold flashes and vomiting. I though it was my appendix. I was wrong. My wife has had cysts removed from here ovaries wich may be the case but it sounds like kidney stones.
Kindly suggest the possiblities other than muscular simple pain e.g., kidney stones. She is also having cough and throat pain from three days. She used Tylenol tablets for cough and throat pain which also relives back pain temporarily..
but the expect she will easily gain back the healthy portion of the weight loss as she was a bit over in the beginning but they think the initial 30 lbs in 3 weeks from the onset of these symptoms w/nausea being so bad in August may have been the trigger for the gallbladder to really decide to go sluggish and wack out!
The ultrasound came back "within normal limits." No stones in the gallbladder or kidneys, even though the pain continues in both areas. They don't consider me to have a fever because it was such a short time total through the whole duration of all of this. Appendicitis has never once been mentioned, probably because nothing is overly tender to the touch and the pain is also on my left side. There was only a little bit of pain when the PA squeezed my left flank.
and get it checked out immediately. Please understand that the blood in your urine cannot be seen most of the time from a kidney stone, at least not in my case of 30 years and multiple stones. You may be experiencing some sort of problem from your surgery or you may have a kidney stone, but it would be very foolish of me or anyone else to say it is this or that under the circumstances. Please call your Dr. and discuss your pain with that person.
It is now a year later and I had the same pain, ended up in the ER. The ONLY difference with this occurence, I had gone to the bathroom and had a large amount of blood. It was not from my stool. I had thought I had started my cycle. Which I had two weeks ago. Used a tampon and nothing, not even a speck of blood on the tampon. I informed the ER doc of this. Had the same tests again and was told the same thing. Went back the following day to the ER, because of the same thing.
goes, chills/sweats and I keep loosing weight (went from my normal 155 down to 130 in last 6 months). CT without contrast did not show any kidney stones, it only showed pelvic phleboliths (calcium like stones in my pelvic veins which dr. didn't seem concerned about those). I am supposed to see urologist for cytoscope, but cant get in for 3 weeks. I am wondering if endo could be causing all the kidney, bladder pressure, pain, left side pain, increasing sickness, weight loss, etc.
