576873 tn?1218731623 I shouldnt have it because it puts on the weight AND it causes my kidney stones... but it's been a need. Whats that all about?
Avatar f tn Does anyone know any herbal medicines could shrink kidney stone. Like alhagi persarum or others?
Avatar f tn POP is HORRIBLE for dieting. Reqular pop has over 20 grams of sugar in 1 can and just as many grams of carbohydrates! In order to loose weight you have to cut back sugar and carbs. Diet soda doesn't have sugar or carbs but it has something in it that makes your appetite increase! Just say NO to pop! You will be glad you did!
Avatar n tn I had several kidney stones and hydronephrosis while pregnant (mostly due to improper or inability of the kidney to drain), but at that time my nephroptosis hadn't been diagnosed. If you have a good doctor (OB/GYN and Urologist) you should have minimal issues during pregnancy. If the docs are watching you closely this should avoid serious complication. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Lillyrose321, Stones can hit you at any age and the fact that you're having as many stones as you are would indicate that your own body likes to produce those little buggers. Age is not a factor in any of it! I'm in the same boat with you, although I'm quite a bit older than you at this point and didn't start having stones until I was about ten years older than you are now.
Avatar n tn I had a thousand kidney stones last year and they had to be removed through my back. Still, some got stuck in the urethra. If u r unable to pee you should go to the ER.
Avatar n tn hello, I recently had a 5mm kidney stone and had it removed. The urologist was going to put a stent inside of me. And when they did the procedure they were able to remove it. I have to see a urologist. He told me not to get pregnant. I was in the hospital trying to pass it for 3 days and it was worse than child birth. What is the best thing to do to prevent that from coming back? I quite drinking pop and coffee. i have been mostly drinking water. Will that help?
Avatar m tn I have a history of kidney stones and already have another calcium deposit that has developed in my left kidney (just 5 months after lithotripsy!). I also suffer from low testosterone and GERD and take Testim and Nexium, daily. Does anyone have any ideas? Is there such a thing as a hernia that can't be seen on ulrasound? Can a back injury cause these symptoms (the middle of my back has hurt during all this time, but only when in certain positions. Dead center, on spine.
Avatar n tn like the rest of you I am having troubles at night laying down when I stand up pain seems to be better I have a lower right abdomen and back pain that comes and goes . I do not have kidney stones and I do not have difficulty urinating. the pain is in the lower rear right abdomen. has anybody found any solutions please?
489228 tn?1291535054 I am awaiting results of blood tests for Prolactin, Liver Function Test, Serum Calcium, Kidney Funtion and Thyroid and maybe others can't remember, PTH blood test has to be done in hospital.....waiting for result of free urinery cortisol test too.... So, I have been a busy Bee....crikey, you think nothing is being done, bit like waiting for a bus...none come for ages and then loads come at once,lol...
Avatar m tn Be sure the uro removing the stone is comfortable doing so, because so close to the kidney it can pop back into the kidney -- C~
2361255 tn?1339611918 Her urine contained blood and her vet diagnosed her with bladder stones and suggested surgery after she completed her course of antibiotics. On a day when my vet was closed (Sunday) my dog had difficulty urinating and was passing just a little blood tinged urine. Not only did she refuse to eat but she would not even walk when I took her outside. I went out and bought Pedialyte and administered it to her using a pet feeding syringe.
168348 tn?1379360675 They also did explain to me that a small hole is made in each of these little ducts in my kidney. The stones just pop out from there. They were able to get 9 out of 9 stone pockets out of my right kidney and 9 out of 11 in the left. They also busted up the stones (2 bigger ones in the left kidney that should pass easily now!) The 2 in the left he did not try to do since they were so mild there was more risk at cutting them then at leaving them alone!
1949260 tn?1325170677 I am gpimg to mt doctor in feb and hopefully getting actual medical advice but I am trying not to freak myself out. Should I expect kidney stones?
Avatar f tn I had an abdominal ultrasound last week that showed mild hydronephrosis of the right kidney and a small, nonobstructing stone. My doctor doesn't think these findings mean anything or even need to be investigated. I'm worried that my kidney might be obstructed by something they couldn't see in the US and needs to be treated soon. I also wonder if my illness could be a recurring UTI. What could cause the hydronephrosis?
306867 tn?1299253309 I've had kidney stones, ulcers, IBS, and now my gall bladder removed. I won't be surprised if in a few years I suddenly pop out a baby just to add pain and insult to injury!!! I know that studies haven't been able to determine if opiates themselves do any damage to the body organs, which means they probably don't (they've found it acutally prolongs/preserves life). However, the additives that are in them...thats another story. Especially with street drugs.
Avatar n tn It can also predispose to kidney stones by effecting the same enzyme in the kidney as acetazolamide - therefore the two may be additive in the risk of kidney stones. Kidnet stones can be very painful and have the potential to damage the kidney. The side effects and risks need to be weighed with the benefit with your doctor. You may be ok by keeping well hydrated etc but perhaps their may be a better headache preventative than topamax if you continue to take Diamox.
Avatar m tn However, a more sensitive test for the same is an IVU (intravenous uography) which is a more sensitive test in picking up the stones and will suggest you to get it done once the pregnancy is over. An ultrasound can be repeated to look for the cause of it during the pregnancy. Normally, the kidney stone pain has got no relation to the pregnancy. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
Avatar f tn Because I'm being treated for the kidney, the rest has went on the back burner. My doc says my stones are from dehydration and I know diabetes could be a culprit but as far as I know eye problems with diabetes are different than mine. I am wondering what could be causing all this? It is going to be a couple weeks before I see my Doctor and I'm so tired of this misery. Any help is appreciated. Also I apologize for the typing, I'm posting from a device other than a PC.
Avatar f tn (inability to concentrate), chronic fatigue, depression, constipation, hormonal imbalances, low thyroid levels, low blood sugars, undefined gut pain, kidney and gall stones, and frequent urination. Do not confuse it with thyroid disease -they are entirely two different sets of glands. I was diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism prior to the hep C and have always wondered if my body's fighting the Hep C didn't cause the tumor on one of the glands to grow (Not cancerous). Something to think about..
209384 tn?1231171906 I take calcium most of the time, but have had a couple of kidney stones and am not real crazy about taking it in big doses. They don't even hurt until this falls off and then OW! Am getting ready to take a pain pill and go to bed.
Avatar n tn They can interfere with the absorption of other meds, can cause constipation, and I think can contribute to kidney stones. A longer acting med like Prilosec or just OTC Zantac might be better.
Avatar n tn Infection is serious, and would get quickly worse, and include fever, and other ill feelings. Kidney stones may cause stabbing pains or constant aches or both. The pain is worse if the stone is moving. You may also be chronically dehydrated. This would cause kidney pain, though probably less severe. It would also cause constipation. Alcohol is dehydrating as well, and would make things worse. It is also bad for your kidneys in general. Chronic dehydration can also cause kidney stones.
Avatar f tn Then Shortly after I had to cysts pop up on right ovary and a few on my kidneys. Then a month later kidney stones. I seen specialist after specialist. Finally a OBGN decided to operate, she found massive amounts of scar tissue from my appendix erupting when I was two. During the surgery my bowel was cut and I was hospiliazed for a week. Four days out of surgery my stomach opened up and I had to have a nurse come into my home daily to check my vitals and pack it.

168348 tn?1379360675 This way I've built respect the past few mos with this new Primary Dr. now understanding me and my kidney stones/UTI's, etc. Prim Doc will fax over TSH to the Endo and get back to me regarding the dosing (maybe the endo will call me herself which is fine) .. I INSISTED TO THE NURSE TO TELL THE DOC I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER on the 88mcgs and will not go back to straight 100mcgs ..

Avatar n tn It took about six months for me to notice any weight changes. About a year after being on the drug, I got kidney stones (another side effect). After this episode, I quit taking the drug. You shoudl not just quit, you need to ween yourself off of it. Ever since, I have gained all of the weight back and then some. I think this medication triggers something in your brain that makes you stop doing obsessive behaviors.
Avatar f tn For the past 2-3 months I usually pop twice a day and take 25-40 mg at a time. These stories of being 30 days clean and stil not thru wd scare me to death. I'm just not sure I can hack hit. I was on day 4 when I relapsed yesterday. My thought process at the time was just use a little and get some relief for a couple days. I was thinking of it kind of as if I were weaning off them, bt a lot of ppl are telling me not to do it that way it just prolongs the inevitable.
