Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones causes mayo


Avatar f tn I have primary hyperoxaluria type one my liver does not produce and enzyme that take the oxalates out of my body, causing many stones and kidney failure, if your having cronic stones get checked for it, a nephrologist is who u need to see, urologist only treat the the stones effects on you. Not what causes them, I will one day soon need a liver and kidney transplant they will not do only a kidney because it will be destroyed by my liver.
Avatar f tn I know how you feel, although I haven't had spasms everyday, I have experienced them on occasion. It is worse than kidney stones. Undescribible pain!! It could be a number of things. Your kidney could be floating, you could have hydronephrosis, your renal artery could be obstructed and the blood supply is cut off intermittantly, and of coarse the old kidney stone is a possiblity. You really need some test done to see what is going on. I know how hard it is to find a good urologist.
Avatar m tn It can also be due to other things like cystitis, and kidney stone or polyp in the bladder. You would feel the kidney stone but maybe it is a precursor to it coming through. So there are lots of reasons for blood in the urine. Do you actually see the blood in the urine or did the urinalysis show a few red blood cells. If a few red blood cells that isn't anything to worry about. If a large amount seen on the urinalysis, then it could be a problem.
Avatar n tn I have a history of kidney stones and basicly try to eat right and all to advoid having them and only have been able to go see a doc about that when they do flare up about every 4 years at an ER.

661200 tn?1225486613 I have just returned from the vet and fund out this morning that my 12 year old Golden Retriever-Lab called Topaz has an enlarged heart and Kidney stones. Because of the heart condition the vet doesnt want to put him under general anesthesia for kidney stone surgery. I live in New Delhi and the resources are limited. However, I am doing the best I can and praying for a healthy and happy dog.
Avatar f tn I do have some patients that swear they feel their nonobstructing stones. After we rule out other causes I am ok with treating the stones with either ureteroscopy or ESWL, so long as the patient agrees with me up front that the stone removal may, or may not treat their pain. Good luck to you! Dr.
Avatar n tn I also have kidney stones chronically. I just got a CT scan yesterday, have a 4mm stone in my right kidney. My Dr said this should pass on its own. I once passed 18 stones in a 24 hour period, after lithography. That was awful. Nothing seems to work for me I am 47 and had them since I was a teenager. Seems the older I get the faster they come. My kidneys were clear in June, this is Aug and already have a 4mm stone, and passed a 2 or 3mm stone a couple weeks ago.
Avatar m tn People I know what I am talking about I have had kidney stones/kidney disease since 1965. Your doctor is wrong most kidney stones can be treated: the goal is to stop or slow down the formation of them. This is accomplished through metabolic testing... which many be done by a nephrologist in some parts of the US. Once it is determined what is causing the stones to form and the composition of them..

Avatar m tn I went to doctor about some lower abdominal pain I had been having, and he suggested that I get an ultrasound of my kidneys and organs in the abdominal area. The ultrasound showed that I have stones (2.5 mm) in both kidneys. My right kidney has a stone of 4 mm. It also showed that the right lobe of my liver is enlarged (135 mm) and that I have biliary engorgement. As I understand, various types of liver disease are typically characterized by enlargement of the whole liver.
Avatar n tn Since that time she has been treated for endometriosis, kidney stones and now this false tumor. While hospitialized, a lumbar puncture was done and medication given to her. However the lumbar puncture caused her vein to collapse so they took it out. Next, they did a procedure where they snaked a a type of flexible wire through her artery in up her arm to send medication directly through the artery, past the heart. That was taken out two days ago because they couldn't figure out what to do.

After years and years of countless thousands of kidney-stones, 100's of procedures (both invasive & non), many thousands of CT's, X-Rays, KUB's, Nuclear-Medicine Tests, etc, etc... my urologist has finally stepped up and offered me a left-side Nephrectomy (kidney removal).
Avatar n tn Right when I got home from the hospital and 6 months of rehabilitation I started developing bladder stones and had a foly catheter in that would plug up all the time, so my Uroligist put in a S/P tube that kept plugging up even if I use irrigation up to 5 times daily and I had continual infections so in 1987 he performed a loop and that seemed to work for awhile, but now I have kidney stones that just keep forming.

Avatar n tn Even a friend of ours who is an endocrinologist said with my kidney stones I should be seeing an endocrinologist, and my Dr. still seems resistant to sending me to one. I can relate to the frustration. It feels like the search for an answer is going in circles sometimes. I am going to stop trying to get help from Cleveland Clinic Dr. forums, because either they don't answer or the forums are always full.
Avatar n tn I have had kidney stones removed surgically on three occasions over the past ten years. Each time the Dr. has left a stent in my urinary tract. The first two times the stent had a string attached to it. When the stent was removed it caused minimal discomfort. The third time which was perfomed recently, the Dr. said he preferred not to attach a string to the stent. I agreed, not knowing that I was agreeing to a procedure that was infinitely different from my previous experiences.

Avatar m tn The sharp stabbing pain also occurs on my right hand side just below the ribs, seemingly to cause a band of possible areas this sharp collicy type pain could occur. My GP sent me for a US of the upper abdomen, I was checked for Gall Stones, Kidney Stones and anything out of the ordinary.

After 4 MRIs, 2 CAT scans, a pet scan a ultrasound test of my gall bladder, an ultrasound test of my kidneys, and ultrasound test of my liver, the doctors were perplexed.

Avatar n tn The pain continued and he (after my wife insisted) ordered a CAT scan of the abdominal area. At first, they thought that a small cyst was spotted on her kidney. Our doctor ordered a second ultrasound, specifically focusing on the kidneys and they could find nothing. Our doctor also had my wife examined by her OB/GYN who reviewed the lower abdomen and transvaginal ultrasounds and gave her a pelvic exam and PAP smear. His only comment was, "I hope you and Dr.
Avatar n tn Heart valve issues (heart problems can initiate joint problems, or false joint problems and fatigue), hypopituitarism, kidney problems, sugar/glucose issues, and something that causes fluid to pool in the legs and there's not enough power to be pumped back out causing the fatigue.
