I have Sjogren's syndrone and develop kidney stones often and they usually pass on their on. I had one crushed three years ago. I now have one that is so large with smaller ones lodged inbetween it that have blocked of my right kidney (seen in a CT scan today). I do not want to go through the crushing again.....what are other procedures? Would like to be prepared before talking to urologist.
I have a 15 yr. history with kidney stones. I had my most recent attack 3 weeks ago and it was one of the longest enduring of any I've had, with the most severe flank and ureter pain lasting almost 12 hrs. The last couple hours of the horrible pain, I experienced what I would almost call spasms very low down, and I've never had that before in any of the other attacks. I had waves of pain and the urge to urinate every few minutes.
I'm figuring that kidney stones take a while to form and that, if I have kidney stones and possibly an infection, it's likely that I had the kidney stones first and they contributed to the infection, rather that having an infection first that contributed to the kidney stones (sorry if this sounds confusing).
She was very sick just over a week before she was diagnosed, and they don't know if she was sick from the kidney stones,or if she had the stomach flu,and getting dehydrated caused the kidney stones. However she never really got too "dehydrated" when she was so sick. She did vomit alot, but was still having plenty of urine. So who knows. Any experience on how long these things take to pass? Thanks again.
If gone untreated over a time period such as mine, can stones lead to kidney failure? Any knowledge of this subject would be much appreciated.
(Feels similar to a catheter in your ureter tube that leads to and from your kidney and bladder or bladder to urethra.) I'm scared because I am only 24 weeks and towards the end when I had one with my daughter they told me I had to deal with it. So I guess my question is the people who have experienced this what was the out come?
Urologist performed cystocopy (normal), ultrasound (normal with R kidney hydronephrosis), CT scan showed no hydronephrosis but two 2mm non obstructing LEFT kidney stones. I keep having symptoms of what feels like uti that subsides with drinking a lot of water. Macrobid removes all symptoms while i'm on it but they return 2 days after I stop taking them. I don't have any other symptoms, the pain I usually feel is bladder discomfort and pain in urethra, some burning and urgency.

As far as I know, these are the only treatments - http://www.mayoclinic.org/kidney-stones/treatment.htm "Watchful waiting About 85 percent of the time, kidney stones are small enough to pass during urination. This occurs usually within 72 hours of the start of symptoms. The best treatment for these small stones is to drink plenty of water (as much as 2 to 3 quarts per day), stay physically active and wait to pass the stone.
I have an 18-year history with kidney stones with about 2 dozen episodes. The symptoms did not match the typical kidney stones, so I thought it was an infection that anti-biotics would cure. Still I drank lots of water trying to flush the system. My stream was getting gradually getting weaker with each urination. Finally, just after midnight, the stream was at a trickle, I could not sit there all night, so I gave a good push. Like a champagne cork, 2 stones shot out.
I went to the emergency room on Thursday the 1st with extreme pain in my right side. They took a CAT scan and determined I have kidney stones. They said it was the size of a grain of sand. Also I was told to eat only soup and drink alot of water. I was prescribed flomax, IBProfin, and vicodin. When should I expect to pass the stone? and Can I eat any solids? It is Sunday and I have yet to pass it.
Cause of pelvic pain could be due to kidney stones, pelvic infections, urine infections, twisted ovarian cyst or rupture of ovarian cyst, appendicitis or any other referred pain due to other organ infections. Most of them may not show up on ultrasound. So get all these causes evaluated from a gynecologist to confirm the diagnosis. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.

But yesterday I felt that urethra flutter again and had slight back pain so I thought I was passing a kidney stone (have had 4 of them). No back pain today but the urethra pressure feeling is back when I sit. And felt the flutter again today. I also have read that menopause causes changes to the urethra, vagina and bladder, so I'm not sure if that's what I'm experiencing. But it's disconcerting. Soooo, I'm wondering if I should see a urologist about this or just continue with my GYN.
I have seen at least a dozen posts with kidney stones. There has to be some correlation between opiate use and kidney stones. My surgeon showed me mine on the CT scan and it's a white circle as big as a golfball. He feels it might be from chemicals but said that it's probably from my chemo. I keep thinking that he is gonna pull out a big white opiate that either says Endo or Watson on it lol. Just wondering if anyone else was told theirs was from chemicals?
Hi, How are you? Kidney stones less than 4mm usually pass out of the urinary tract spontaneously, stones larger than 5mm require surgical intervention. If a stone is present in the kidney and is less than 4mm, then it passes from the kidney, through ureter followed by bladder, urethra and through urine passes out.
stones that small can pass through the urethra usually fine. The pain you are experiencing usually itsn't from the stone itself its usually from renal colic or hydronephrosis or swelling of the kidney/ureter. Its possible they could also be in the bladder.
An utra sound found nothing unusual. The urologist thinks it is either kidney stones or the residual effects of a bad infection. He would like me to get a CT. I am concerned as I have had 3 CT scans after a PE in both lungs 2 years ago after delivery. What are your thoughts? He does not think it is IC because it came on so suddenly. He said that the urine cultures were tainted due to the antibiotics. I can go 2-3.5 hours between void but I am holding it. What are your thoughts?
One thing i did notice in my urine on the first night there was a solid object , i was thinking kidney stone as after that i felt abit better,but it didnt hurt as i was urinating. Could this also be the cause of the swelling , any ideas?Im generally a healthy teenager. Depsite having Henoch Schonlein Purpura a few years ago , i have had nothing else any bit serious.
now today the itching has stopped but i have a slight pain that comes and goes in my back under my ribs, which im sure is probably my right kidney, the symptoms ive looked up point towards kidney stones, but i dont understand how holding my pee would cause such symptoms
Also this can happen due to kidney stones. There is a chance of developing infection if the bleeding in massive and cause obstruction. I would suggest that you visit a urologist for examination and further advise on treatment. Best.
Hi there, You are probably having urinary tract infection. It could be due to cystitis, urethritis, kidney stones, prostatitis, bladder infection or urinary tract infection. Sexually transmitted infections can also cause such pain. Depending upon the cause of your symptoms, you may need antibiotics or he may advise you to drink plenty of water and prescribe pain killers. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination.
