Avatar f tn Hello everyone, I am currently sitting in a hospital on day 2 suffering from kidney stones. The stone passed yesterday thank god!(worst pain I have ever had in my life) this is my 3child and first time experiencing this. My question Is has anyone else ever gone through this and had perfectly healthy babes, I completely trust my Drs and the hospital but I can't help but to worrie about my baby.
Avatar f tn A friend of mine (who is an ER nurse) said when her husband had a kidney stone, he drank cranberry juice and it helped him pass it. Your regular dr. could also order a CT, US or KUB to see if they could determine what exactly is going on so the urologist would know what is going on. It doesn't hurt to ask if he/she could order some test other than a urinalysis.
Avatar f tn my heart goes out to him they say the pain when passing stones is like giving birth, my boyfrind suffers from kidney stones ive seen him in such bad pain that he cant move and his urine the colour of cranberry juice, i know your proberly sick of being told the same thing but while hes actually passing a stone all he can do is take plenty of painkillers and drink loads of water to flush the stone out easier, my boyfriend had lipotripsy which sends shock waves to the kidneys what basically crum

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 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 So I'm almost 18 weeks and I found out I have kidney stones :/ is any one else going through this?
Avatar n tn Gross hematuria or visible blood in the urine requires further evaluation. Kidney stones, bladder stones, a vascular injury, a structural anomaly and inflammation of the kidneys may lead to hematuria. Kidney stones when small enough may pass through without much symptoms.However, in most cases kidney stones as they pass through the ureters do present with intermittent severe pain in the flank region.This may be associated with nausea and vomiting. Do you have any of these?
Avatar f tn jess122308 What are the risks of taking cranberry? Side effects. Cranberries, cranberry juice, and cranberry extracts are safe. Excessive amounts could cause upset stomach or diarrhea. Pregnant women might suffer these side effects at lower doses. Risks. If you think you have a urinary tract infection, don't rely on cranberries. There's no good evidence that it will help. Instead, see a doctor.
7019649 tn?1396796117 I'm on my last day of antibiotics, and they didn't clear up my symptoms. I have a history of kidney stones, and I'm afraid that's what is going on again. Anybody have any experiences with kidney stones during pregnancy? What did you do for them?
Avatar n tn I have had recurrent kidney stones since 2000 in 2001 I finally was told that I have Medullary Sponge Kidneys the problem is that in the last 2 months I have passed at least one stone a week and I am sick of being in continuous pain. The ER won't do anything but give me pain medicine and sometimes treats me as if I am just a seeker of drugs.
Avatar n tn I suffer from what is called Polycystic Kidney Disease (google it) which causes chronic kidney stones. Many people have this disease with no signs until they are much olde. When their kidneys begin to fail them. Diarrhea is related because when the stone is stuck in the ureter ( the tube leading down to your bladder from your kidney) this sends a message to your entire digestive tract to stop.
Avatar m tn Antioxidants reduce the amount of inflammation in your body, which helps the kidneys function properly. The potassium in cauliflower is known to prevent kidney stones. Kidney stones can lead to kidney infections and eventually chronic kidney disease. Eat cauliflower raw with a hummus dip or steam it with a squeeze of lemon. Cauliflower is also delicious smashed with low fat sour cream and fresh parsley.
670748 tn?1291078694 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 I week ago I developurethratoms of what I thought was a UTI, just like in the past,I immediately started taking Azo and drinking cranberry juice, which using works or at least decreases the pain.
Avatar m tn my family lives by cranberry juice because we have such a bad history of kidney stones, and i really do believe it helps. but eat for optimum health, keep your body active, drink a LOT of fluids.. doing these things should help you get though, and may even improve your symptoms.. you never know..
342647 tn?1291111533 I suffer from kidney stones... they suck, but I have a high pain tolerance and opt not to take anything. Yes, they hurt... but if you think about how the pain won't last forever, it helps. And, the stones would have to be pretty large for them to cause kidney damage. Just so you know, most of the time kidney stones resolve themselves. They will break down in the kidneys and most of the time you won't even know you are passing them.
Avatar f tn I've been told not to take cranberry juice or capsules since I make calcium oxalate stones .. the cranberries are high in oxalates ... my Uro explained the cranberry juice creates a barrier along the mucous membranes so that's why it helps prevent infection, etc.
Avatar n tn I have dealt with kidney stones for many years now some I've had to have surgery for others just had to deal with pain for weeks waiting for them to pass. I know that I have 5 dormant ones on my right side and 4 on my left side right now. They keep referring to them as dormant anyhow. I have been having some very bad days pain wise and having issues with being able to urinate much regardless of how much water I drink (I pretty much only drink water every day and my intake is high).
463595 tn?1334000822 Do not drink cranberry juice because it contains oxalate which can cause kidney stones...cranberry juice is okay for uti but not kidney stones..lemon juice is very good for breaking up stone for smaller passage. I just finished up a bought with kidney stone 7mm and uti.
Avatar n tn Hello: Question about a kidney stone....I am 35 with a history of uric acid stones. Most have passed uneventfully without medical intervention. Pain is usually rather mild. As of 1 week ago I began passing a kidney stone. Syptoms stopped after 2-3 days, but I never noticed the stone pass. I have absolutely no symptoms now, no sign of infection. Just wondering if the stone could have passed, disolved or may be obstructive. Would I have any symptoms with a ureter obstruction?
Avatar n tn I would like to find out how long it takes after passing a few kidney stones, to feel OKAY again. It has been a few days now and I still have a lot of soreness in my abdomen and right side. In order to find anything out from my doctor, I have to make an appointment - means time off work and a long wait. Thank you for helping.
Avatar f tn I, too had too big of stones to pass and I had 17 in one kidney (the one they removed). My other kidney was only functioning at 50% and the Dr mentioned "transplant" but nothing ever came of it luckily. I had to have the stones blasted (twice) so they could pass. I was in the hospital for 10 days for all that. That was 6 years ago and I hope I never have to go through that again! I was in the hospital so many times with kidney problems, the Dr.
Avatar f tn If you have pain in the kidney area that is coming and going, then it could be due to kidney stones. Take a lot of fluids, apple cider, cranberry juice and see if it helps. If not, this needs to be followed up with an urologist. If you have gut issues with this then it could be IBS or any other inflammatory bowel condition. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do consult your doctor. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted.
