Common Questions and Answers about Multiple kidney stones in both kidneys

kidney-stones

they said I had several calcium deposits <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span>, one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the right kidney is 3mm. I am wondering when I go see this new doctor they referred me to what will happen. And I destined for surgery no matter what? I have never had a diagnosed kidney stone before. I have had a lot of unexplained pelvic pain and back pain the last several years, could all these stones be the cause of this?
I was doing a search online for multiple kidney s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span> and came across your posting. I'm a 26 year old female with a family history of kidney stones. in Jan 09, I experienced a dull aching pain in my side that lasted for a couple weeks and then went away. I experienced something similar in late Feb 09 and after a week of this pain, I went to the clinic (I'm in the military). the dr couldn't find anything wrong and said I must ahve pulled an abdominal muscle.
I have MULTIPLE SMALLER S<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>NES <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> BOTH <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span>. I have no MEDICAL inSURANCE BECAUSE OF PRE EXisTinG. I HAD BOTH KNEES REPLACED SO no inSURANCE WILL COVER ME. AM I DAMAGinG MY kidneys by noT HAVinG THis TAKEN Care noW?
I am in my mid 30s and have never had health issues at all until this began and now I have constant s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span>... literally non-stop. Anyone else experience this and have all normal lab results? I am hardly eating any meat, drink 4Ls of water with lemon each day to get my pH at the perfect 7 (that is where my doc wants it), eat minimal dairy (no milk or eggs) and very low sodium.

I experienced something similar in late Feb 09 and after a week of this pain, I went to the clinic (I'm in the military). the dr couldn't find anything wrong and said I must have pulled an abdominal muscle. However, since I mentioned my dad has had over 40 stones in his life, he sent me for an x-ray.
there are no such warning signs but one can get dull aches in the flank region a day or 2 before onset of severe pain. “Kidney s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes typically leave the body by passage <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the urine stream, and many s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes are formed and passed without causing symptoms. if stones grow to sufficient size before passage—on the order of at least 2-3 millimeters—they can cause obstruction of the ureter.
Finally after she was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> excruciating pain a x-ray was done and they found 2 kidney s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> right kidney. they had me give her pain meds for 2 days and the dr's figured they passed. Since then had a couple days that she was in a little pain. then today started having really bad pain again, and more bleeding in urine. We're hoping they pass this time, and we'll be done with this. We don't have a family history of these, and follow up with the dr. next week.
I can understand him being leary i suppose but I've had 2 ct scans and 1 X-ray <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the last 2 1/2 mos all showing multiple s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> one or both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the ureters. So its a documented issue, i wouldn't think anyone would look at him like he's prescribing unnecessarily.
Stones still there - went to ER with pain - meds didn't help. Thought I was passing s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes but still <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> kidney. CT taken shows have more s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span>. Mass is just birth defect. Am going back to urologist on Wednesday- he was gone for the week. Pain has been pretty bad - there most of the time - varies in intensity. Bones are screaming again and stomach is hurting like did when had the hyperparathyroidism. Worse when the stones move around.
the doctor told me the results showed s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span>...more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the right than <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the left. Also showed a 4cm by 4cm cyst on the right ovary. She put her on birth control pills for a couple of cycles to see if the cyst goes away. So we are starting month 1 with the birth control pills, and waiting for an ultrasound in a month or two. As for the kidney stones...she was told to drink lot's of water, as much as 2 -2 liter bottles a day.
I am passing stones again and last trip to ER after cat scan I was told I have so many s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span> they didn't even bother counting. I finally have a appt with a urologist today at 2:30. My questions are....for the past 3 days I have been on a all liquids diet. Always two gallons of water by my bed to suck down. I have not drank anything but water. I can not eat anything solid with out vomiting right away and even the liquids sometimes can not stay down.
while they are in your kidney, because there have been times when I have had s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes only <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my kidney (none <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my ureter or bladder) and I have been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> horrible pain, but who knows for sure...but seriosuly, I'd ask about a stent....it really helped me A LOTTTT!!!
I’m a 35 year old female with numerous kidney s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span>, which were first discovered 5 years ago when I was pregnant. I saw a urologist recommended no treatment since they were all small stones. I had no symptoms from the stones over the last 5 years. then during my last pregnancy, I began having blood visible in my urine and discovered that there were still stones in both kidneys, but they were now much larger. I had PNL to remove stones from my right kidney.
I have multiple s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span>, doctors just say my body is a stone making machine and always run urine on me and sometimes its full of protein and sometimes it has microscopic blood and sometimes visible, and just ever so often it has a bit of an infection but rarely. I have pain all the time on my left sid emore than right, sharp stabbing sometimes in the bladder and sometimes just ripping down side and into hip for hours or days or weeks.
After that there was nothing more than the silent urinary blood until 93 when I began to have multiple s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both kidneys. these stones are usually small enough to pass in the 3mm to 5mm range and my renal function has not deteriorated except for a brief period when I had a larger stone causing temporary hydronephrosis. Renal function returned to normal after that stone was removed with ureteroscopy.
He says I do not have MSK but I am a stone former an have several s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both kidney. Largest s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes 3 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> left kidney measure of 5mm an growing. I have several small stones in both measuring under 2mm. the last IVP indicates no obstruction an no change in hydronephrosis. I have a lot of pain on my right side. the IVP indicates I have two 90 degree bends in my ureter an my kidney drains but a lot slower than my left.
I am now 37. My urologist says I have MSK on the right side. My latest CT shows multiple s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span> more in the lower pole of the left kidney without obstruction. Stones in lower pole of right Kidney measuring 2X3mm. More than one stone in lower pole of left kidney measuring 5X3mm. no hydronephrosis. no inflammatory process. But why do I have so much pain on my right side?? I had an IVP done a few months ago, which stated a slight tortuous ureter on the right side.
I'm 26 years old and I have been suffering from multiple s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span> 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'm honestly back and forth to the hospital with severe stone pain once a week. Once there, my pain is treated and I am released once the pain is managable.

i really don't know what else to do. everytime few months another ultrasound and both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span> have 'multiple'. and all through the uretha etc. I just can't face the er another weekend with docs saying no blood in urine, tests look good, then finally doing ultrasound (had way too many xrays/ct this year) and hello you do have stones and a ballooned kidney. As long as I'm peeing, not vomitting and no high fever there isn't any benefit to go to er right? anyone else like this?
Last night I was diagnoses with multiple kidney s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes ranging from 4mm-3mm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> size in both kidneys. I went into the ER with horrible pain in my left side which I had no idea what it was. I have never had any kidney stones. So far tonight in the last 8 hours I have been screening my urine as directed and have passed 4 stones...3 medium sized and one that is a boulder in my eyes...
I have learned to live with them and have seen the same doctor all those years. I now have two s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes, one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> each kidney and both are >9mm. I hurt all the time but my doctor says that there is no hydronephrosis and the stones are in a position of the kidney where I should not be having pain. Well guess what? I do have pain and I am sure it is from the stone.
8 or sometimes more stones a month I pretty much always have one passing threw and sometimes pass multiple s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes at the time and even pass multiple s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes from both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>kidneys</span></span> at the same time . And I have been dealing with this for 4 & half years now and dosent get easier .
Thanks for the reply. I will definitely mention the parathyroid when I have the ultrasound done on Friday. I've actually been to an endocrinologist, urologist and nephrologist and none of them can figure out why I've passed at least 12 kidney stones in the last 4 years and still have "numerous" stones in each kidney. Anytime I mention parathyroid, they all say that couldn't be it since my calcium is normal. I don't know how to get them to investigate it more thoroughly.
Up to 20% of adults with kidney s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes may have medullary sponge kidney; the corresponding figure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> 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.
the only places you should feel any pain at all from the kidney s<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>nes, is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the ureters, if you're female. (the ureters are the tubes that carry your urine from the kidneys to the bladder). in Females, once the stone(s) reach the bladder, it should be no pain at all, and it doesn't take long at all for the stones to pass when you urinate, the stones will be carried out of the bladder, through the urethra.
