Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones pictures ct scan

kidney-stones

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.
Either an IVP with pictures taken while lying and then standing will show the exact degree that your kidney is falling or a lasix renal scan in supine and upright positions will show your issue. A lot of doctors think this is a mythical condition, while others do take it seriously, however, surgery is only performed if you are symptomatic. Good news though, they are able to perform a laproscopic nephropexy!
Unfortunately I dont know enough about it to say yet. I will find out asap exacty what I had they told me "an abdominal CT scan with contrast" so thats all I know so far. That and the nurse saying it took MANY pictures in "slices" if that helps. Sounds to me like you had one done too. I will find out the exact name of the machine, etc. when they open and call me back. I left a message, someone will call hopefuly today.
i have been ordered by the consultant to attend a cystoscopy and to have a CT scan. This isnt until the end of this month! its such a long wait! Thank you again for your help though!!!
I must admit that I believe the jury is still out with regards to heart scan, CT angiography and calcium scoring. After Tim Russerts death, I must have received 5-10 question a day feom concerned patients and friends. They all wanted to know if they needed a scan. People who were relatively healthy wanted to know if they were going to die suddenly. The following NY times article does a good job of painting different sides of the story.
He's had two different MRIs though. Wondering if kidney stones would have shown up on those pictures? I will look into that, thanks.
Thank you for responding to my question. I have never heard of a EUS what is it? I did not think about looking into the pancreas, I guess I will be doing some more research. I saw the OBGYN again and we are also talking about removing my left ovary because I have cyst on my left ovary. But the pain is still on the upper left side. I thought the other day I might have passed a stone. The funny thing is no one thought about kindney stones. Which I have had in the past.
no doubt about it .. but I'm not so sure they do this test that often anymore ... my stones showed up on CT Scan.
So four days later i went back again. Well this hospital preforms a ct scan looking for kidney stones. They found the kidney stones they were looking for. However they left me with this overwhelming fear after telling me that they seen a shadow on my lower left lung. I had 3 pictures taken so for the radiologist to say he didnt like what he seen, does that mean it was on all 3 pictures and does that mean there is something there. I'm a 25 year old mother of 2.
Ended up going to the ER because the pain became so severe. First thing they thought of was gall bladder or kidney stones. But all the tests came back ok. They came to the conclusion that I have a spastic gall bladder and sent me home with Reglan. I've been reading some of the other posts on here with people who have similar pain in their abdomen. Unlike a lot of them I don't have vomiting. I have mild nausea and cycles of constipation and diarrhea.
I go to ER every single attack only to have them say YES its your gallbladder, we just need an abnormal test to remove it… EVERYTHING is always ALWAYS normal, I am ready to jump off a bridge, my abdominal pain is so bad. 4 years ago I had kidney stones but passed them, then was diagnosed with H Pylori but eradicated it after 2 treatments, then the pain changed to this gallblader pain.
I have had very few bad days since my surgery in mid-November, to remove the painful build-up of stones from the collecting ducts of my left kidney. I recently (last night) passed two stones both less than 1mm. But my days without pain greatly out number my days with it. This is such an incredible change for me. I have posted some of the photos that were taken during my surgeries (the first attempt was canceled because my ureter was too narrow.
Mine was only 10% in a half hour, meaning it was not functioning properly. After removal they did find two stones that did not show on the Ultrasound or CT scan. Gall bladder attacks can cause nausea, fever, and chest/abdominal pain so they thought that was the problem. I must admit I do not feel as nauseous as I did before the operation, but my other symptoms continue. Currently I am seeing an internist/endocrinologist to test for possible hormonal problems.
I CT scan with triple contrast is almost as good as an MRI. for peace of mind (especially given your family history) I would insist on the follow up tests. If you google this you will get the percentages of certainty for each type of test (ultrasound, CT scan, MRI) for diagnosing hepatic hemangioma and you will see that the CT and MRI far surpass the ultrasound. all best to you and hope the scan gives you peace of mind.
On some occasions, I have had elevated bilirubin (total 1.8). My upper GI, CT scan, hydascan, and urinalysis were normal. No gallstones seen. What I want to know is if anyone has had a diagnosis after similar pain and what was it? Should I be worried about having a serious illness?
Also a scope to see inside my bladder. Also I am set up for a CT scan of the bladder and kidney. Inicially when I was examined the DR. said that she wasn't concerned about cancer......but NOW I have a trace of blood!!! and ALL OF THESE TESTS!!! I am scared like crazy. Could someone shed some light.
I am at my wit's end dealing with pain, nausea, etc. I have had 3 abdominal ultrasounds, a CT scan, blood work done twice, and now a HIDA all with normal results. I am going bonkers!!! Please, if you have any suggestions or similar experiences I am BEGGING for your input - anything will help. Thanks!
I have underwent an abdominal CT, an abdominal sonogram , and also a HIDA scan. They all came back normal. So I went to a gastroenterologist. I described the situation to him. He asked me what I was taken for pain. I told him hydrocodone. He asked me what I taken it for originally. I said postoperative knee pain. I have been taken narcotic painkillers for about 2 1/2 years due to the fact I have had a total of 6 knee surgeries( 4 right, and 2 left).
I know you have had tests done but did any of them look at your left kidney? What are the symptoms of kidney stones? Kidney stones often do not cause any symptoms. Usually, the first symptom of a kidney stone is extreme pain, which begins suddenly when a stone moves in the urinary tract and blocks the flow of urine. Typically, a person feels a sharp, cramping pain in the back and side in the area of the kidney or in the lower abdomen. Sometimes nausea and vomiting occur.
She went to see the family practice and all he did was go..lets do blood test..then he threw a paper at her and said lets do a ct scan after the blood test came back. They did a scan and all they found was a cyst on her liver the size of a couple grains of sugar. These cysts are common and people are born with them, so now they say go see a gastroenterolgist. The liver is way above where the pain is. Its a constant 5 on a scale of 10, with some sharp stabbing pain here and there.
I was told I have a fatty liver and that they had discovered a leaking cyst on my right ovary, My blood and urine was tested and found that there was blood in the urine. I am now going to have a CT Scan on my kidney's to check for kidney stones and she put me on some antibiotics to be on the safe side. It's strange but oddly enough the pain has become somewhat less severe but still uncomfortable. The dr mentioned that the cyst on the ovary could cause deferred pain.
My cyst was orginally thought I had kidney stones. The CT showed otherwise and then the TV US showed specifics. THe most inportant thing to remember is to make sure you trust the dr. you are working with and that you document what you hear and have done. It helps if you need a second opinion. Keep us informed and take care.
I should also mention that my doctor prescribed a ct scan of my intestine / bladder region. The ct scan showed that I had horse shoe kidneys which was not known until that point (its something I was apparently born with ... the two kidneys are connected which increases the likelihood of kidney stones).
If one of my patients developed these symptoms for this period, I would definitely order a CT scan to answer what is causing your pain. If one of my patients had similar symptoms I would also evaluate them for nephrolithiasis (kidney stones) and inflammatory bowel disease. Ask your physician about basic blood work (CBC and comprehensive metabolic profile), urinalysis, and most importantly a CT scan (94% sensitive and 95% specific for diagnosis of appendicitis. Very Respectfully, Dr.
Maybe the kidney function problems. Have they done a CT to check for kidney stones? Do you have ketones in your urine regularly? If so do you go w/o eating at times? I have printed out your list of symptoms and will go over them. You have so many things going on. Do you have elvated liver enzymes w/ the swollen liver? Does it feel swollen or has a dr. confirmed this? Have they done a US or HIDA scan on your gallbladder?
I appreciate finding this thread. My fiance was in the ER a few weeks ago with kidney stones and when they did a CT also found some nodules on his lungs which at the time the ER doc said were inflammatory in nature. A week and a half later he was back in the ER due to problems with the kidney stent they put in after the stones were removed and another CT was done and the nodules were obviously still present, this time the ER dr said they were not inflammatory in nature.
I am a 21 year old very healthy female, the only problems I have ever had are kidney stones two different times. I feel like I am going crazy. I am in real pain, and all the doctors keep giving me the run around. I need some direction. What kind of specialist should I see? Has anyone had anything similar to this? What should I do for now to help with my pain so I can continue working. Money is tight, as it is for everyone and I really need to get back on my feet soon.
Urinary stones can cause abrasion and irritation resulting in hematuria. Other possible cause is a kidney condition called glomerulonephritis. I would suggest that you consult your Doctor so further investigation can be done. You Doctor may request for some blood tests, urinalysis, urine culture, and an ultrasound or CT scan. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Maybe you should get checked for Hepatitis A, B, C and D or Polycystic Kidney Disease (you would see the cysts on an Abdominal ultrasound or CT). Maybe you should do a stool culture to check for organisms.
I don't have kidney stones, Gaul stones, pregnant. I do know they found discoloration on pelvic wall and some fluid but haven't got them results yet. Its very frustrating to be in pain but doctors tell u everything normal. Someone help!
