1832268 tn?1326819610 We brought him home and did twice daily under skin fluids plus standard recommended meds and kidney diet. We then took him to a kidney specialist who was trying to determine at what stage of Kidney disease he was at. Got his levels down a little more a week little later, things were looking promising and his energy levels were increasing dramatically. Less than a week later, he completely stopped eating. Took him to specialist after 2 days of not eating.
1963554 tn?1325451090 He said that his right kidney is destroyed and that his left kidney has about 25% left. He has a tumor within his bladder and his urine cannot pass thru which goes into his kidney and damages it. When we had Shaggy checked out in May our vet said that it's UTI...because I mentioned to him that he'd pee and then go to other spots and nothing comes out. So he was given anti-biotics. This went on for several months.

Avatar n tn Those using Topomax need to be especially mindful about drinking plenty of fluids due to increased chances of kidney stones. Stoney will likely develop if fluid intake is not maintained. Looking forward to weight loss benefit as I gained 30# over the past 4 years on anti-depressents. Has anyone used this for bipolar?
1244499 tn?1397549123 Apparently the Radiologist double checked the X-rays and Ultrasound, and found around a dozen kidney stones floating around in his body. They offered a possible solution of a new diet that breaks down the stones so he can easily pass them. Later that day, Mom gets off work, and it's her turn to visit. This time, she talked with the doctor in charge of the vet. One of Whitmans kidneys was completely shutdown, and the second was not far off.
Avatar n tn For years I would pass out for no reason and have bursts of energy then all of a sudden get real tired and would even have trouble w/ my memory and have trouble maintaing weight just all kinds of things and these spells would last for a couple of weeks before I would recover.At the age of 17 I started producing kidney stones and for years I kept switching doctors who just kept dismissing everything.
Avatar f tn It's hard because before this happened I told Josh I was going to try to get a refill since he still has his kidney stones and is in pain. I don't know what I'm going to do. I've just been sitting here in a daze. By the way I took vicodin and percocet tonight. Ugh, I'm even shaking my head as I type that. I'm not sure exactly how many I took. Probably around 10.
Avatar n tn Now, for the reason I went in the first place. Kidney stones have been fairly common on the male side of my family. I only thought it was a matter of time for me, and when the first one hit recently I was not suprised. I was shocked to find out that the stone was almost pure ephedrine. It was explained to me that ephedrine along with the cola I chased it with raised the acid content of my urine.
1230655 tn?1344261399 So yesterday was my 30th day clean, and lo and behold, I had to go to the doctor for what I thought was kidney stones. I knew what the doctor would try and give me, so I did the right thing and had someone who would not let me take anything with me. I was 99% sure I would have said no on my own, but I thought why take that chance: I ended up telling my doctor I was an addict, which I was scared to do, but he was very supportive.
Avatar m tn Six months ago, I was diagnosed with microscopic hematuria (microscopic amounts of blood in urine). The doctor did a number of tests to check for kidney stones, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, etc. and came back with nothing. The cause remains unknown but he checked for major problems and let me go. I am now suddenly wondering if this could be due to HIV. I have never had sexual contact with anyone except my wife and she is the same way.
Avatar f tn Ever since then i sometimes (about once every few months) experience this odd sensation and it can become a bit worrying and strange. The whole room seems to have a new feeling to it- everything im doing whether it be walking or typing seems to intensify and become louder yet the actions are very exaggerated and almost speed up (only perceived this way). I find it very difficult to explain fully but i'm worried it's some early signs of a neurological condition or something?
Avatar m tn Its also pains linked to lower admonen top part of the penis area and left kidney area (hips side) is it kidney stones? or i pulled a miucle?
Avatar f tn Her gallbladder was removed 30 years ago and the stones formed. She's 96 now and recently had the stones removed endoscopically during 2 separate procedures. They didn't want to do surgery since they felt the surgery might kill her. Thank goodness that these endoscopic procedures are available. The colonoscopy would never go as far up as to get near the common bile duct.
Avatar m tn Im supposed to leave for Maui Hawaii for spring break in about five days, yesterday I was diagnosed with severe hydronephrosis and i really don't want to miss out on this amazing trip, is it bad for me to be flying? I had kidney surgery when I was 4 and the doctor said i would never have to worry about it again, and so i believe that there is scar tissue that is blocking my kidney.
Avatar n tn i head for some info thru a nurse friend and told me stuff like liver and kidney problem and a hint of std. but after i read all the so similar stories here, im relieved but still worries a little. there a side of this incident that teaches me to practice more on safe sex, i believe that everythings happens for a reason, and the message for me is to look after my health more, limit encounters and practice safe sex..thanks heavens.....
Avatar f tn Hi, I was taken to the hospital by my husband as I could not keep anything down due to severe pain on my lower left side, the pain was kind of like when you get a stich from walking or running too fast...anyway the doctor at the hospital examined me, thought it was kidney stones, but blood work and urine came back fine, had a ct scan the next day and thats when I found out I have an enlarged liver 20cm in the mid calicular plane???
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
Avatar n tn Hi all. New to this. I am a 44 year old woman who is physically fit (gym 5 days a week) and eats pretty well. Approx 5 weeks ago I developed veins showing on both hands. They have not gone away and infact they are bulging most times, and I can "feel them". They have increased and I can see some starting to climb up my forearm now. Before this, my veins barely ever showed.

1478126 tn?1291072975 i'm definitely starting to feel better, but one of my kidneys is hurting. i have a history of kidney stones...maybe 2-3 a year. throughout the withdrawal i've been drinking a metric ton of water every day. is this normal? or is it possible that by drinking al this water i'm flushing out another stone? has anyone else had kidney pain during withdrawals?
168348 tn?1379360675 5yrs old) and C) I feel really healthy and going to have a BLAST with no medical concerns at all .. other yrs I had kidney stones and becoming somewhat dehydrated by being in the sun caused constant kidney stone pain; this year STONE FREE and THYROID HEALTHY PS: The pic is Helsurf (one of our members) surfing in England .. not me .... but it looks like fun to me and qualifies as "the ocean as in beach!
452063 tn?1324078516 The bad part is that the vet did not get clear margins so it is likely that there are still cells in there and it will grow back and may invaid even farther without radiation. I got half of this as a phone message and have been waiting for almost 2 hours for the vet to call me back. I got alot from googling the tumor and dogs. I'm not sure if the radiation will help or what the prognosis is until the vet calls back. Please pray that there will be a way to save Oliver.
1035252 tn?1427231433 I can survive without it but I'm really just tired of one painful thing after another happening...last month it was kidney stones and surgery, this month it's a broken tooth....and that's not even mentioning the daily headaches. I just want to catch a break and I know everyone here can relate. I guess I don't have a question but I need some support to get through until my neuro calls back (yes, I'm a wuss...yes I realize this, lol) and hoping he's willing to be my angel today.
Avatar f tn I'm new, I have had stones for over 25 years,and uti's all my life.the older I get the more stones I have.10 years ago they said I had MSK. I'v been through most every thing. I have had a good few years,I guess they were just setting there growing.
1431734 tn?1421015271 The problem with most mineral supplement however is they don't absorb well, and they can contribute to kidney stones because they can raise levels beyond what you need, which will just make the minerals more likely to give you kidney stones, and since you are treating your kidneys have enough to deal with just handling the riba etc. I would try drinking some warm milk before you go to sleep and see if that helps, if you get no relief you may want to see your doctor and discuss it.
Avatar n tn I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of. All CT scans, MRI of brain and blood work keep coming back clean and ok. Nothing I try seems to work. There was a period of time about 3 and a half years ago that the symptoms lifted for about 4 months and then it returned full force.
Avatar n tn This doctor was positive that I must have kidney stones. After a very brief exam, he sent me to a local hospital for an abdominal/pelvic CT scan. I was feeling so bad I could not think straight and foolishly got the scan. My regular doctor was in disbelief at his quick diagnosis, and said that I got so much radiation for no good reason. I now worry I will develop cancer from this experience and try to really avoid all forms of radition, if possible.
Avatar m tn If this applies to you and you had unprotected sex with a heterosexual partner of unknown status, please read on. If you are reading this, you are probably obsessing over the possibility of having contracted HIV and/or are dreading getting an HIV test. However, it is my aim to teach you that you really have nothing to worry about concerning such an exposure. First, HIV is a very difficult virus to transmit sexually.
469720 tn?1388149949 I must admit that I believe the jury is still out with regards to heart scan, CT angiography and calcium scoring. After Tim Russerts death, I must have received 5-10 question a day feom concerned patients and friends. They all wanted to know if they needed a scan. People who were relatively healthy wanted to know if they were going to die suddenly. The following NY times article does a good job of painting different sides of the story.
