Kidney stones and urethra

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones and urethra


Avatar m tn If you let your bladder get full and then push when you go, you have a better chance of getting the stone to leave your bladder and get into the urethra. Once it is in the urethra, it comes out pretty easily. Hope you are able to pass it quickly.
Avatar f tn I have a 15 yr. history with kidney stones. I had my most recent attack 3 weeks ago and it was one of the longest enduring of any I've had, with the most severe flank and ureter pain lasting almost 12 hrs. The last couple hours of the horrible pain, I experienced what I would almost call spasms very low down, and I've never had that before in any of the other attacks. I had waves of pain and the urge to urinate every few minutes.
Avatar f tn I have Sjogren's syndrone and develop kidney stones often and they usually pass on their on. I had one crushed three years ago. I now have one that is so large with smaller ones lodged inbetween it that have blocked of my right kidney (seen in a CT scan today). I do not want to go through the crushing again.....what are other procedures? Would like to be prepared before talking to urologist.
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 f tn She was very sick just over a week before she was diagnosed, and they don't know if she was sick from the kidney stones,or if she had the stomach flu,and getting dehydrated caused the kidney stones. However she never really got too "dehydrated" when she was so sick. She did vomit alot, but was still having plenty of urine. So who knows. Any experience on how long these things take to pass? Thanks again.
Avatar m tn At first it was only in my side so I thought I had appendicitis. Went to the ER and they said it is possibly stones. They gave me some ibuprofin 800 and told me to drink plenty of water. I have been doing this, but a year later the pain is still there. Sometimes it becomes unbearable and makes me feel sick to my stomach, but I down a gallon or so of water and it goes away only to return later. The pain is getting worst.
2149304 tn?1447814562 (Feels similar to a catheter in your ureter tube that leads to and from your kidney and bladder or bladder to urethra.) I'm scared because I am only 24 weeks and towards the end when I had one with my daughter they told me I had to deal with it. So I guess my question is the people who have experienced this what was the out come?
Avatar n tn Called an ambulance, said it sounded like kidney stones. Took an ambulance, plane and another ambulance to a hospital in the city-I live in the jungle in Costa Rica. The x-rays and ultrasound show a kidney stone. On the other side it also shows some white spots that may be calcium or other small stones. The doctor said the diarreah was unrelated. I stayed in the hospital overnight-no diarreah. Came home yeaterday and last night severe diarreah all night again.

Avatar f tn Hello, Stents can cause discomfort or pain, commonly in the bladder and kidney (loin) area, but sometimes in other areas such as the groin, urethra and genitals. You can get pain killers prescribed and if the pain is not relieved then you may need removal of the stent. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn The ER doctor said the stone probably cause irritation to my urethra and it'll take a while to heal. I'm not so sure he knows what he's talking about and just gave me more antibiotics and sent me away because he didn't know what else to do. Please, please help me!!
Avatar m tn (this is my 3rd doc but now i had it checked in a well known hospital, the last 2 check up was from a clinic and it was more then 5 months ago) i told my doc that my main symptoms were frequent urination and slight burning feeling and i told him that i took all the antibiotics for chlamydia and gono. so to his assumption he said that it doesn't look like an std and said it could be a kidney stone.

Avatar m tn As far as I know, these are the only treatments - "Watchful waiting About 85 percent of the time, kidney stones are small enough to pass during urination. This occurs usually within 72 hours of the start of symptoms. The best treatment for these small stones is to drink plenty of water (as much as 2 to 3 quarts per day), stay physically active and wait to pass the stone.
Avatar f tn I started to feel the syptoms return about 6 weeks ago so went straight to the doctors and was given the cyprofloxicen and codiene and was to assume a kidney infection had returned and told to go back with 24 hours of taken the antibiotics if i felt no better. The next day i vomited half an hour after taken the tablets and was feeling extremely poorly and the doctors (very reluctantly) sent me straight to hospital.
Avatar m tn It sounds a lot like a bladder or kidney infection to me with the back pain. As far as "your thing" sticking together when you pee, it could just be the way it is bent. Think of a garden hose and pinching the hose together or bending it while trying to spray water. It changes the flow of water. I would make an appointment with your doctor and have them check you for a possible bladder or kidney infection.
670748 tn?1291078694 Depending on what the composition of your stone is, they might tell you to refrain from eating things like chocolate and tomatoes, and apple juice. I have calcium oxalate stones, and I can't drink apple juice or cranberry juice, and there's a strange list of things I shouldn't eat a lot of.
Monkey After three days of this my symptoms had worsened and I realized that unlike all those times in the past,I was getting no relief from the pain,I was/am Not urinating frequently And i am experiencing pressure in my pelvis/lower abdomen and urethra
Avatar f tn Incredibly, mutant, toxic nuclear painful and just plain HURT, A LOT, multiple kidney stones. Kidney stones can pass and poof - all gone. Then another - or a few others - can make their ugly journey into your ureter days or weeks later. This experience is not fun. I speak from experience. One little 5 mm just about made me grind the enamel off my teeth - but the lovely wretched staghorn model at a whopping 9+mm? And hooked and now on display in a window box?
Avatar n tn // I hope this helps. Take care and keep us posted.
Avatar f tn But yesterday I felt that urethra flutter again and had slight back pain so I thought I was passing a kidney stone (have had 4 of them). No back pain today but the urethra pressure feeling is back when I sit. And felt the flutter again today. I also have read that menopause causes changes to the urethra, vagina and bladder, so I'm not sure if that's what I'm experiencing. But it's disconcerting. Soooo, I'm wondering if I should see a urologist about this or just continue with my GYN.
452063 tn?1324078516 I have seen at least a dozen posts with kidney stones. There has to be some correlation between opiate use and kidney stones. My surgeon showed me mine on the CT scan and it's a white circle as big as a golfball. He feels it might be from chemicals but said that it's probably from my chemo. I keep thinking that he is gonna pull out a big white opiate that either says Endo or Watson on it lol. Just wondering if anyone else was told theirs was from chemicals?
231903 tn?1281486184 If a stone is present in the kidney and is less than 4mm, then it passes from the kidney, through ureter followed by bladder, urethra and through urine passes out. But in case while moving down if it gets obstructed in any part of the tract it can cause pain as well as due to obstruction development of urinary tract infection is quiet common. The most common symptom of any infection in the urinary tract is burning sensation, increased frequency, urgency, discharge, foul smelling urine etc.
Avatar m tn stones that small can pass through the urethra usually fine. The pain you are experiencing usually itsn't from the stone itself its usually from renal colic or hydronephrosis or swelling of the kidney/ureter. Its possible they could also be in the bladder.
Avatar n tn As you know they are formed in the kidney and travel from the kidney via our Ureter into the bladder and finally discharged from the bladder via the Urethra. The Prostate sits behind the bladder. The Urethra travels through the prostate gland which is divided in 4 zones and surrounds the urethra.
