Avatar f tn Rhe pain was worse then labor I swear. Have any of you ladies had kidney stones during this pregnancy? Im due nov 28th and im already dealing with all the pain that comes along with pregnancy and I cant go through that again.
Avatar f tn Congratulations on your pregnancy. Kidney stones are not uncommon and they can occur during pregnancy. It sounds like you are passing the stones (hard white balls when you urinate). Usually, your doctor will give you a strainer and have you strain all your urine. YOu then save the stones and they can be tested to determine what type of stones they are (for example if they are related to diet or not). IF you have not done this yet, you may want to ask your doctor about it.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had kidney stones during your pregnancy and what did the pain feel like. I went to the hospital earlier and was sent home and told I was just experiencing round lig pain but I'm a bit skeptical of that verdict because it lasted for hours and the pain was so intense. I didn't test positive for a uti either but idk what to think. I dont have bloody urine but i swear i peed out something resembling a small pebble earlier too.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with kidney stones at 28 weeks pregnant and my urologist pUT a Stent in my ureter and the pain was gone! But the stent is also not comfortable at all either I hated it!! hope all gets better!
Avatar f tn How many here have dealt with kidney stones during pregnancy? I am 18 wks 5 days and have a stone that needs to pass. Hurts excessively. I had a stone with my last pregnancy at 34 wks. That time required surgery to remove. If this is not gone by Monday I may be headed that way again.
Avatar f tn With my last pregnancy i had such bad kidney stones that they were blocking my ureter (the tube going from your kidney to your bladder) which caused all the urine on my left side to be stuck in my kidney i got really bad hydronephrosis (excessive swelling of the kidney) and had to have a stent placed 4 times while pregnant to let the urine flow correctly again!
Avatar f tn Had anyone had kidney stones? This is my 3rd child I'm 12+1 weeks.I'm healthy.but in the last 2 weeks I have had 4 kidney stones(on top of being really sick with"morning sickness"). Not kidding it IS worse than having a baby. MY ob said they don't effect the baby at all and pregnant women are more prone to getting them.had any body else had this problem.
Avatar f tn 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? I'm on my second round of stones. I just had surgery to remove a 6 mm stone 3 weeks ago and now I have one in theĀ opposite side. I'm only 14 weeks so I have a ways to go yet.
Avatar f tn Iv had afew kidney stones in the past and it is n absoulte living hell. When i first found out i was pregnant i would joke like " watch im gonna get one while im pregnant" well its no laughing matter now that im 17 weeks and pretty damn shure i have one. Less sever then the previous ones but i do fear it becoming more sever.my question is, does anyone know what they do for them during pregnancy? Befor they just threw a script of percs at me and idpass it on my own.
Avatar f tn Bed rest, hydration, analgesia, stent placement, percutaneous nephrostomy are the possible options. The size of stones, position of stones and your general health condition will help in deciding the exact treatment for you. Hope it helps. Take care and good luck!
Avatar f tn I haven't passed one during pregnancy but i have had one and got stuck and after I had the baby got it removed. They say it's easier to pass them when you are pregnant because the eariter opens wider so alot of women when they are pregnant have there first stones. Did you have one or are you hyaving one?
Avatar f tn I am really prone to kidney stones and after a lot of pain on Wednesday an ultrasound reviled another one. :( My doctor is wanting to put in a stent but says he usually doesn't do them this early so most likely it will have to be changed in a few months. I am scared. Has anyone had one in pregnancy before? Someone told me I would be awake the whole time. That makes me more scared and anxious. Is the stent painful? I am 11 weeks today.
Avatar f tn Anyone else have kidney stones..? If so what do you do about it. It is SO painful..
Avatar f tn I feel for you dear! I before pregnancy is prone to kidney stones...which puts me s high risk! I know kidney stones are painful enough but to add pregnancy on top of it...its so much worse! I do hope the best for you and a fast recovery!
7019649 tn?1396796117 All day morning sickness on top on being in constant pain and needing pain meds just wasn't working. I had a 6mm stone removed and was so relieved just to get another in the opposite kidney 3 weeks later. Thank God that one passed on it's own after 2 weeks of constant pain. The only thing that got me through was a high pain tolerence,a heating pad, warm baths, and pain meds.
500419 tn?1220128343 Meanwhile try to drink plenty of water to facilitate easy pasage of the stones. Hope you can work things out and continue to have a safe pregnancy.
Avatar f tn Come to find out I have two kidney stones one that is in the process of passing and one that is still in my kidney.. I am 27 weeks ... Has anybody else had kidney stones during their pregnancy? I'm honestly so miserable and I can't eat and I'm worried about my baby . Any suggestions ?
5650943 tn?1374116408 Went through having my appendix removed after a month of being in hospital even tjough they were adaamant it wasnt that (good job as it was close to bursting) then for the following year put this excruciating pain down to cyists on my ovaries then they found lut after having constant unrine infections that I had a cm and half kidney stone.
Avatar n tn I had kidney stones just a week ago but the blood in your urine means that you might have pregnancy diabetes.
Avatar n tn I had kidney stones both times I was pregnant (stone size approximately 5mm), and had to have surgery both times to have stones removed. I assumed stones were associated with pregnancy. I am currently not pregnant and experiencing pain in my side. Thought it may be stones -- no blood in urine. IVP shows a 3 mm stone in my right kidney (even though pain was more intense at the time on the left). I have hypothyroid and take 125 levothraxine.
Avatar n tn has anyone else experienced a kidney infection/ stones during pregnancy ... what did u do for the pain .... all my doc told me was heat but my god is this miserable .. last time I passed a stone they dopped me up on pain meds which is obviously not an option this time ... please help me !! ...
5900973 tn?1396067991 I found out monday I have kidney stones for the 2nd time this pregnancy... :( I am going in friday for my csection and just hoping the pain eases up for me or that I just pass the dang stone... I dont want to be dealing with that after the birth. It just seems like bad timing, not that there is a good time for these things... Tmi but my urine looks like cranberry juice, kinda scary but I know its from the stone. I have been drinking tons of water.
