From your history of gynecological cancer in the past, this may represent recurrence of the cancer with invasion into the urinary bladder. It does not sound like kidney stones which, as you stated, can be quite painful. You have painless gross hematuria with clots which makes me suspect the bladder as the source. Did you have a follow-up CT scan? What did it show? Do you pass air when you urinate? Do you leak urine? How long ago was your surgery?
These substances can create small crystals that become stones. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is dehydration. Kidney stones may not produce symptoms until they begin to move down the tubes (ureters) through which urine empties into the bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys. This causes swelling of the kidney or kidneys, causing pain. The pain is usually severe. Kidney stones are common.
I was always told how uncommon it was for a girl my age (first stones were at age 19,I am now 27) to have kidney stones and also plus because I am a woman and women don't tend to get them.

But this past month I have passed 10 stones so far and counting. Each time at the ER I am prescribed pain meds and anti nausea pills and sent home.

This is a side effect of the stents which are expected to go away in a few days. If they persist then it can be due to recurrence of stones, stricture in the ureter or inflammation. I would suggest that you get a ultrasound done to check the possibilities. In case of stricture immediate action needs to be taken to prevent scarring. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Tests found that I was severely anaemic and dehydrated, but couldn't find a reason for the pain. I eventually had a C.T scan which showed that I had several kidney stones in both kidneys and one in my tube. I had a stent fitted to help the stone move, but that gave me a lot of pain too. Anyway, to cut a long story short I have been in severe pain for two and half years now, so bad that I can't work (I used to run a pub).
I have been treated for kidney/ureteral stones 3 times in 4 years by cystoscopic removal and ESWL. Two stones have been sent for analysis. They were composed of calcium oxalate and calcium carbonate. I am not a big dairy product eater. In fact I get far less than the recommended calcium intake for women. I am a 34 year old female. My urologist seems to not be very interested in further testing.
I have been passing kidney stones since 2006. I recently saw a Urologist in November of 2011. I was told I had 2 large stones in my left kidney and a few small ones in my right kidney. I went to the Urologist because I had been experiencing terrible pain in my left kidney. In December I had my left kidney cleaned out by laser through the urethra. It took over 3 weeks to recover and it was the most terrible pain I have ever felt. They did not put a stent in.

_ Dear AJ, The goals of treating kidney stones are to relieve pain, remove the stone, preserve kidney function and prevent recurrence of stones. The majority of calculi less than 4 to 5 mm in size pass spontaneously. Obstruction from a stone, whether partial or complete, causes a progressive decrease in renal function. Detectable renal damage usually does not occur in previously normal kidneys until complete obstruction has been present for over 4 weeks or more.
I had a stent placed then removed in my vagina for kidney stones. Now I have alot of pain, itching and pressure in my vagina and pelvis area. Why?
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Kidney stones at times dislodge by themselves and the pain disappears. There are numerous speculations in alternative medicines which say that the stones disappear on medication, but Allopathy does not have any such treatment. Drink plenty of fluids, try apple cider and cranberry juice. These tips may help to flush out the stone if it breaks (but less likely).
You need to be further evaluted by your urologist to look for any secondary stones or a recurrence of the stones. Get an ultrasound done.

They are then reevaluated after that six-month period of time to see if urinary tract infections will again reoccur. If you currently have kidney stones, certain types of kidney stones are associated with recurrent urinary tract infections. These are often called struvite or stag-horn stones. Suppressive antibiotics or removing the stone often helps prevent recurrence of UTI's. Good luck. J.
I want to know that whether the increased level of creatinine is due to stones or there is the damage to kidney due to some other reasons. Please tell me the chances of my creatinine level to come to normal after complete removal of the stones. The ultra sound and IVP test shows no damage to kidney. please suggest.
Reduced urinary stream can occur with ureteral stones or urethral stricture. As you already have the history of stones in the kidney or ureter, there is a chance of recurrence. Get an ultrasound done and consult a urologist for further assistance. All the best.
