Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and surgery


Avatar f tn So I have been in and out of the hospital since Christmas with kidney stones on both sides, I am 31w+1d. First my option was to monitor it and hopefully they pass on their own, no luck so far an now my white blood count is high so they want to do surgery to put in to stents the drain the kidneys preventing inflammation an pain . The only thing is I will have to have them until the baby is born an then they will deal with the stones.

Avatar f tn I just found out I have kidney stones and I'm almost 18 weeks . any body get kidney stones while pregnant?
Avatar m tn I have just had treatment for kidney stones -- the stone is too large to pass and it is translucent. Efforts to enter the kidney from the back and remove it failed as I was told the surgeon and the radiologist could not see the stone at the same time. I was released and thy have a drain tube on my kidney. I am to return in one week. What procedures might they be considering to remove the stone.
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 I was never told that this could be the outcome of my surgery and that I would need subsequent surgery to get rid of these stones. Thank you for any advise you can lend.
Avatar f tn Well I had really bad pain on my left side to the point I was crying so I went to the hospital and there keeping me over night to pass my kidney stones. Anyone else gone through this?
Avatar f tn I was also told i have msk. I had surgery last year on my right side and they pulled out 13 stones and told me they got them all. mind you also at the time i had some in my left kidney but they said they weren't worrying about them cause they were just small. But about 6 months after surgery i found out i had more in my right kidney and the ones in my left are bigger so they did lipo .
Avatar n tn Last May (2007) I got my first kidney stone, which was removed in emergency surgery (it was blocking my kidney). I have since then made three more stones and have had each one result in a blockage of the kidney and the ER admitting me for surgery. I have another stone in my right kidney as of right now but for some reason, my left kidney is killing me!!!! Ever since the last two surgeries which were both on my left kidney, it seems as though it is not working right.
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 n tn I have had high blood pressurefor a few years now and recently I had lithroscopy(kidney stones) surgery and since then my blood pressure has been normal and they taken me off my hydrochlorizide(water pill), do you have an explanation of why this happened or how.
Avatar f tn She said i have kidbey stones that i have to let pass and ive never been in such pain.. i was throwing up pisssing my pants and experiencing the kidney stones all at once. she gave me painkillers and im waiting for them to pass.. has anyone else had an experience with being preg with kidney stones??
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!
Avatar f tn I was hospitalized at 20 weeks with kidney stones and until I passed them and afterward heating pads were the only thing that helped. Drink a lot of water and stay hydrated, that'll help you feel better faster. The internal swelling should go down within a week or so of getting rid of the stones. Good luck!
Avatar m tn In case someone missed a beat and you weren't told anything, a 3mm stone can cause you a lot of pain, as most stones can, but can usually pass on its own without the definite need for surgery to remove it. I'd be drinking water and then drink more water and then more again.. The water will help it pass and help flush it out, so drink as much as you can handle. If you have been given a prescription for Flomax, get it filled and take it too. That will help the stone to pass also.
1619332 tn?1299021545 So after they made the pain go away and they gave me pain medication to take home and a follow up appointment with a Urologist to check out the remaining 3 kidney stones and to make sure I passed that one I was sent home. Well the Urologist seemed nice and he took another CT scan on my follow up appointment to make sure I passed my first kidney stone, which I did, and check out the other 3 in my right kidney. He told me that to just come in for check ups and that was it.
Avatar m tn I'm figuring that kidney stones take a while to form and that, if I have kidney stones and possibly an infection, it's likely that I had the kidney stones first and they contributed to the infection, rather that having an infection first that contributed to the kidney stones (sorry if this sounds confusing).
Avatar n tn I had surgery a week ago to shockwave my kidney stones and had a stint put in to help with the passing of the stones. I have had one week of very painful urination. I feel the pain worse after I have urinated. I can not see that I have passed any of the stones but it is so painful to urinate. I was on antibiotics for 5 days so I don't think it is an infection. Is the feeling I am feeling grains of stones being passed? I am afraid this pain is never going away.
Avatar f tn I have a lot of prescription pain meds in my medicine cabinet because I have had 2 c sections and another surgery within the last couple years and I hate taking pain meds... I took an oxycodone. That along with a vibrating massage mat under my back seems to be helping with the pain for the moment, but the nausea is even worse now. Any suggestions for that? I just need to make it to morning so I can go to an urgent care clinic.
Avatar f tn After he went home the next day he felt his back was wet and went back to see a nurse at the hospital. She said it was urine coming out of the hole in his back. He went back into day surgery and they said he had a slight blockage so they put a stent in and he came back home, this was this morning. Now tonight it is happening again. He said he will wait till tomorrow morning to call the doc. Has anyone had this happen. I am worried that he should go back to hospital.
Avatar f tn Hi, Kidney stones often do not cause any symptoms. Usually, there is extreme pain, which begins suddenly when a stone moves in the urinary tract and blocks the flow of urine.If the stone is too large to pass easily, pain continues as the muscles in the wall of the narrow ureter try to squeeze the stone into the bladder. As the stone moves and the body tries to push it out, blood may appear in the urine, making the urine reddish.
Avatar n tn I ended up having kidney surgery at 25weeks with my first because the stones were too large to pass. Now Im 32weeks with my second and i have passed 12 stones since 9weeks pregnant. Its miserable. I had to stop taking my prenatal vitamins because the calcium blocks my kidneys so they switched me to folic acid instead. I decreased my calcium intake. And don't eat alot of green vegetables since those have a tendency to cause stones. You just gotta let the stones pass on there own.
5900973 tn?1396067991 Without other drinks or foods. And it really helps. And its natural. My friend had so many and after the week the dr checked her again and found little to none. But search about it to be sure the details for yourself.
Avatar n tn I have done this for 11 months and had no UTI's and no kidney stones since then. I was always getting 'burning and smelly urine and no infection. Now I get none of that and if I miss 2 night of taking them, the smelly urine is back and the slight burning. My Doctor says that Cranberry is not toxic either and that we urinate what we dont need like most other vitamins. Allow 3-4 days before seeing some effect. Worth a try....
472139 tn?1211336163 So sorry to hear this, gosh lately i have heard of more and more hear having kidney stones?? I wonder if this has anything to do with us taking too many pain pills? I don't know anything about methadone, but i wish u luck!!!
Avatar m tn Well the gall bladder hmmm I am not sure. The right kidney 7mm... where is it located? The 5mm in the distal ureter can be removed via cystscope easy procedure.. no biggie. Ok to go with meds you need to analyize the stone to find the composition and possibly meds. You are not in need of open surgery called a "PERC" you are not a canadite for open. Please at all costs try to avoid the laser as this will leave much dust and fragments that will than make even more stones.
Avatar m tn ' The answer is, then find a different primary care doc, or start listening to the things that you don't want to hear-- that you need surgery to remove the kidney stones, for example. OR that narcotics are just not the proper way to treat chronic pain from kidney stones. The bottom line-- if a person keeps going to the ER to get pain meds, at some point things will go very bad. The patient will end up with untreatable pain, and in need of detox.
Avatar n tn You need to watch if the dog is in pain, having problems urinating, etc. I take it these are bladder stones? They are more common then kidney stones. It is considered a major surgery to remove them and they may become chronic. You definitely have to watch the diet. Ask your Vet for a recommendation on the food. There are dog food companies that do make special diets for animals with stones!
Avatar f tn I have been dealing with kidney stones since i was 14 weeks and am now 33 weeks but and have been in and out of the doctor hasnt mentioned going early but i kinda wish i would so i dont have to be in pain anymore.
