2143924 tn?1341903318 I am 24y old male,past 8-9y i have stone problem now i have 4 to 6 mm stone in both kidney (upper urater) plz tell me effective med. Or test to solve that problem. Thanks for help.
Avatar n tn Sorry about your kidney-stone, Brother. I feel your pain, literally! I get them all the time and take Tamsulosin (Flomax). Hopefully your doctor instructed you to drink PLENTY of water (3L-5L/day) until you pass the stone. Did he? If not, DRINK LOTS OF WATER. The mild burning sensation comes with the territory, but drinking plenty of fluids will help dilute your urine. I wouldn't worry too much about it, unless it persists after you pass the stone. Post back and let us know how you make out.
Avatar n tn I am a 21 year old female, and I have a 6mm kidney stone. I am wondering if it is possible to pass a stone this size with no pain. I caught something in the strainer, but I did not even feel anything. Everyone I talk to tells me actually passing the stone is very painful and I would definitely have known. Can anyone help?
Avatar n tn I passed the kidney stone now I started taking Magnesium citrate for kidney stone prevention? and where do I buy 10 mg of pyridoxine (vitamin B6)?
Avatar f tn Hello and hope you are doing well. As suggested the condition needs proper evaluation by your physician. The causes for stone formation are urinary tract infections, kidney disorders and metabolic disorders like hyperparathyroidism. In addition to this if the person has a strong family history is more likely to develop stones. So, the stone formation causes need to be dealt with to prevent stone formation.
Avatar n tn I had kidney stone but I passed it. Do I add the maintenance supplements–flaxseed, calcium, magnesium, vitamin B6, and zinc/copper–on a long-term basis. Will I have less getting the kidney stone again? How much calcium and zinc do I take?
7808984 tn?1406684565 I had surgery yesterday and was unsuccessful in retrieving or blasting the stone....I now have a stint in for the next 2 weeks and they are goin 2 try again in a week ....I was told I would have some discomfort when I went pee now due 2 the stint but some discomfort and what im going thru are 2 different things.....like WOOOOW im almost afraid 2 pee but if I wait 2 long I gotta pee longer so It hurts longer.....
Avatar n tn I was given pain meds and flomax, however I never passed the stone. Recently my stones started acting up again and I was told to go to a Urologist to have them taken out. Well I cant get into the Urologist for 3 weeks and I have been suffering with extreme pain for 4 days now. The problem is that it has quit hurting in my back and side, and only hurts in my lower left abdomine now. This pain mainly appears late at night waking me several times.
Avatar f tn I had a cystoscopy several months after passing a kidney stone if that's what actually happened and the urologist said my bladder looks fine. I also had hydrodistention (I hope I'm using the correct term) in which the urologist stretched my bladder under general anethesia and instilled an IC cocktail (I have no idea what was in the cocktail). Anyway, the urologist said that my bladder looked fine. The urologist thinks that I have sensory urgency.
Avatar n tn I put off the treatments a few days and ended up with a blocked kidney and a MRSA Blood infection. Needed a stent, all sorts of fun procedures, and ended up with a scope up my You-Know-What anyway. Don't wait..........
Avatar n tn In the meantime she gave me an anti inflammatory shot again (toradol), flomax, diuretic, antibiotic and more pain medication. Stone does not seem to be moving but I am still hurting badly in lower back. Could this be something besides a stone (lower back pain-protein and blood in urine)? Is it normal to have pain off and on for several weeks?
Avatar f tn I think the Doc is thinking well it's not obstructing and so it might sit there forever,right after the attack l have already had etc (l'm sure l must hve been passing a stone then) and with a slight protrubence in my right kidney pelvis (what could that be), l think l'd be very lucky that this sucker will sit still and not cause problems. He considers that if l drink heaps of water and never get dehydrated etc it will stave off any possible problems. ?
Avatar f tn Do I take this medication now while I am in pain and trying to pass the kidney stone..... Or do I wait to take it just to get it out of my bladder? I lost my prescription information paper and today is Sunday all offices are closed :-( This is a new medication for me.
Avatar n tn I am a 46 yr old male...I had kidney stone surgery a month ago..and now have an enlarged prostate..I am scheduled for surgery to scrape the prostate...I have had catheters in and out..I'm on number 6 and take flomax...I have been having constant bladder spasms and now urinating around the tube of the catheter 4/5 times and the urine is not going into my bag much.....is the flomax causing me to urinate around the tube...or is this part of the bladder spasm...do I need to stop taking flomax...
Avatar n tn The ER doctor was upset they didn't do a CT scan so he ordered one and I find out I had two kidney stones a 3x2mm in my left kidney and a 5x3mm in my right kidneys. Non obstructive and still in the kidneys in the lower pole. I was told I was at risk for them getting bigger. I got prescribed hydro's and sent home. 8 days later I was in even worse pain to the point I was in tears and so nauseous I couldn't eat. The pain was now in both flanks.
Avatar f tn My PCP felt it was kidney stones and prescribed me flomax to help pass it. Days later no change. They did a CT scan, but it showed no stones. I still have blood in my urine so they suggested I see a Urologist. Feeling frustrated I have not made an appointment yet. Yesterday I felt pretty good, just some lower back pain, occasional nausea and I did have two hot sweat periods followed by chills but again no fever. Today I woke up with severe lower back pain.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately it was so high in the Ureter that the only option at the time was to push the stone back into the Kidney and place a stint. Round three will be on Tuesday where the Urologist will go in and manually break up the stone. Hopefully all of the pieces will pass easily!
3183592 tn?1344634338 A fellow resident started an IV and I went to the CT scanner for films that confirmed a small stone blocking my right ureter and kidney. I was pumped full of morphine and Toradol, and about five hours later, I saw a little round black pebble hit the back of the urinal. The word “relief” does not begin to describe the sight of that stone.
Avatar m tn As per my doctors reports unfortunately the stone is in such a position (right inside the canal of the kidney) where they would have to puncture the kidney (PCNL) to reach it and remove the stone. I was hoping it would be possible to do lithotripsy and get rid of the stone by putting a stent. Also i have been told the passage of my ureter has formed some sort of minor blockage due to inflammation?! What will be the treatment for the same? Extremely confused and scared any help would be great.
656452 tn?1332787535 the Ureteropelvic junction (UPJ) ? I'm asking because my Urologist has spoken to me about my report, etc., and said the stone in my ureter is high up near the kidney. I've heard about a UPJ obstruction before, but forgot to ask him on the phone. Presently, my symptoms are mild (which was not the case over the weekend), so we're waiting 2 weeks to image again. I'm on Flomax, an antibiotic & drinking a lot of water.
Avatar f tn husband had a kidney stone in june - 4 mm. has another one - 4mm. took his system 5 days to pass the first one, going on day 2 on this one. looking for any insight on how he could get one so quickly.
Avatar m tn She was operated by laser machine (Laser Session to break stone) 3 times in General Hospital and her some stone was released while some is still in her kidney about 5mm to 6mm. Now the problem is that she is pregnant and can't bear another laser session and I think its harmful for baby too (Its 4th month of pregnancy), she is bearing kidney pain after every 1 or 2 days. Is there a medicine or solution that her stone be released or at least her pain is finished?
Avatar m tn I would suggest that you stop drinking the cranberry juice and stick to plain water. Some time ago on the kidney stone forum someone did mention drinking lemon juice to help dissolve the stones. I do not know if that works or not, but drinking lots of water 2-3 litres per day will help to move the stone unless it has got lodged in the urinary tubes and cannot move.
Avatar f tn After doing a MRI, they found a 5mm kidney stone. The doctor advise me that the stone would pass on it drinking lots of fluids. She also prescribed me Flomax and Vicodin for pain. Then on February 7th, I ended up in the ER, again. I could not handle the pain. Which also indicated that the stone was still there. After some X-rays, the doctor said that it was very close fo my bladder. I asked how long would if take to pass, she said anywhere from days to even a week.
Avatar n tn increased hydration, medication for treating infection and reducing pain, and diuretics to encourage urine flow and prevent further stone formation. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn 5 stone in blader and also swelling in kidney because stone was in ureter.Doctor told me that 7mm is big size stone and it is in ureter so it can create problem and he give 10 days medicine and told me if stone did not came out you can go for operation. I did not want to go for any opeartion so i consult with one another doctor that doctor told me you need to take medicine till 2 month and stone will come out.
187666 tn?1331176945 Hello, Most people with kidney stones will have blood in the urine .The urine may be pink or reddish, or the blood may be visible only with urine dipstick testing or microscopic examination of the urine. In people who do not pass kidney stone lithotripsy is the treatment of choice. It is indicated for stones 1 cm or less in the kidney and upper ureter. Contact your doctor if the haematuria is persisting. Persistent haematuria can lead to weakness, dizziness and hypotension.
Avatar n tn Will it be whole or in pieces? It's 3.4mm now and I'm on Flomax and lots of fluids.
