It turns out I have 5 kidney stones. I am new to this. One is 3mm is long and was blocking 2/3 the way down. I was bloated, felt like I would vomit, and had extrem pain. after morphine. they sent me home. I was better and thought I had passed the stone until recently everything is returning in the same order as yesterday.

So, this is my 4th pregnancy but my first time dealing with kidney stones presumably caused by the pregnancy. Has anyone else had this unfortunate experience and how did you get through?

Well the doctor bills are piling up and they are not finding anything I went to the internet to this site and someone said that they had a lot of the same problems i had and that the doctors did all that to them and found nothin but finally ran that dye kidney stone xray and found kidney stones.

I fear we are headed down the kidney failure path with all the damage the stones are causing. He is taking 8 pills a day for just kidney stones, and he still gets the stones. Now add in medication for bipolarism if that proves to be the case...

I've been dealing with kidney stones for the last 20 years (and I'm only 38). My addictionologist has told me, as well as my sponsor, that if you are in the hospital and being administered narcotics (morphine, dilaudid, etc) for the purpose of relieving your suffering, that there is NOTHING wrong with it. It's not considered a relapse, or a slip, or anything.
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?
I have had 14 kidney stones and 3 surgeries for them. I was given Demerol and Toridol!!!
I am a 26 year old female and I have been dealing with kidney stones for the past 9 years. I pass atleast 2 stones every month. Recently, I had SEVERE pain in my left flank and went to the ER.

I am almost 18 weeks pregnant and have kidney stones! They are supposed to be putting a stint in next Wed. The Dr. said that I might have complications such as kidney failure or contractions if I DON'T put the stint in, but I have heard that the stint is VERY painful, sometimes more so than just having kidney stones! He will change the stint every month until the stone(s) pass or the end of the pregnancy.The Dr. gave me phenegren and demerol for the pain. I am scared!
It was found that my stone was calcium based and I was told to avoid all dairy products as well as some fruit and veg. There are 4 different types of kidney stones. Unfortunately, once you have had kidney stones the chances of getting another one are much higher.
When I was having kidney pain like that they pumped me full of morphine and then demerol because the morphine was dropping my BP really low. So they break out the good stuff for kidney pain.
I've had more than my fair share of kidney stones, and each time I've been admitted for pain control and been placed on a PCA-pump, or been administered steady doses of either Morphine or Dilaudid, it's always the same old story... After the stone has passed, and I'm out of the hospital, the "details" of when I was actually IN the hospital are a bit fuzzy. In my experience, it's fairly normal, although I'd listen to Tuck and seek medical advice if this continues.
At first I didn't say anything about the adverse symptoms, as I thought it was a normal side-effect of the drug (I wasn't at all familiar with narcotics back then, as they hadn't dug their claws into me yet). Intravenous Morphine was administered for the acute kidney-stone pain, and I immediately had the anxiety onset and began to sweat uncontrollably.
I have a history of stones. I went to the hospital and they filled me full of morphine and then sent me home with a script for 10mg morphine. Did that ever make me sick, but I was fine a few days later. BUT,my urethra was hurting, this went on for about 4 weeks. On monday night I woke in pain but managed to go back to sleep for an hour. 3 am woke in excruciating pain. in my lower right belly (very distended) my kidney and my urethra. I thought I was going to die.
With your history of kidney stones, the risk of recurrent kidney stones is present. Dietary and medical management are often advised to help prevent recurrence. It is best that you check with your attending physician for proper management. Drinking plenty of fluids is highly recommended. Take care and do keep us posted.
So they kept giving me meds until I could get in for CT, they CT'd me and said a 4 mm kidney stone passing through me. I couldn't believe it, I just laughed and then cried because there is no way I can miss anymore work the rest of the year. The doctor said we can admit you for pain control, to which I had to say no, I have to go to work. They gave me an antibiotic becuase I also have a UTI and then sent me on my way.
Here they tested blood and urine and said no infection could be found but could be kidney stones and would send me for ultra sound to check. They put me on fluids and a drip of paracetamol over night. the next morning i woke up to very swollen hands and face but was told it wasn't bad enough to consider a concern and was forgotten about.
This is my first time making a posting here, I found this website while doing searches on kidney stones. I guess I am looking for advice or any feedback at all - anyone else my age experiencing such discomfort with stones? Please read. I'm 26 years old and I have been suffering from multiple stones in both kidneys for quite some time. Since December I have had 3 CT Scans, numerous x-rays, ultrasounds, urine tests, bloodwork, and lithotripy during my multiple trips to the ER.
I am a 41/f that has a history of UTI's, kidney infections & kidney stones for about 20yrs. I have been hospitalized numberous times for pain management and stone removal. Sometimes I have all they symptoms (nausea, frequent urination, burning sensation, fever, etc.) of a kidney infection or stones and sometimes I just get the pain and the nausea. I have been hopsitalized for a few days to 2 1/2 weeks for my kidneys.
I've been experiencing some symptoms which I believe point to gall stones but my latest symptoms are throwing me a bit and i want to avoid unnecessary gall bladder removal and as such would like opinions. History: I work permanent night shifts: About 6 months to a year ago i had a few episodes whereby I had acute upper central abdomen pain around 4am which disappeared in a space of seconds within 1h.
Um yes they can I got admitted and morphine for the pain and the iv antibiotics to get it to go away quicker than just pills. I would be pitching a fit until they did something more for you! Do not let them brush you off sweetie!!
I squirmed around trying to find any relief, but nothing I did made a difference. I had treated hundreds of patients with kidney stones, but now, I realized, I was the one who was about to wind up in the emergency room. My wife drove me to the hospital where I worked, and I greeted the ER director miserably letting him know that I thought I had a kidney stone.
I never had gall stones but with my first pregnancy i had kidney stones and had to have kidney surgery when i was 25weeks pregnant. That was horribly painful.
Basket stone,then zap it and pull out major parts or does it fragment to distant areas of kidney injuring area and to become seeds stuck as potential seeds for future stones which also won't pass. I now only have two stones, one smaller in upper area of kidney. Am tired of pain, family cannot tolerate me down with pain. Would flank removal be more prudent? Why or why not?
IBKleen speaks the truth - it is OK to use meds IF AND WHEN you really need them. The medication is not the devil; when used correctly, it can be of great help to those suffering from legit pain. It's when we start using after the pain is gone, taking more than we should, and getting the high that the problems start.
they have started me on a morphine twice a day for chronic pain. woundering if it would not be a better choice for a kidney transplant?
