Avatar n tn Through testing in June, I know that I have 5 small stones in my left kidney and the kidney has hydroneph... can't remember the word at the moment, but it means enlarged/swollen. My uric acid (1480) and oxaclic acid levels were high. I am now on allopurinol (sp? the bottle is not with me). I was told to change my diet to avoid purines and oxalic acid. I got a very short list from the doctor and was told to do some research on the internet.
Avatar m tn I am a 37 year old man. I had Kidney stones in 2002 which was treated by the laser treatment. Again this year in 2010, I had the same problem and was again treated by the same method. The analysis of the stone was found to be due to calcium. My job demands that I remain fit all the time due to lack of medical help. I do drink about 2 liters of water per day some times accompanied with lemon.
895634 tn?1283992810 Kidney stone often is hereditary so you should ask if any relatives also had kidney stones. Taking pain killers for the pain is not the proper treatment for kidney stones. Taking a pain killer to avoid the pain is not good medicine. It is masking the underlying condition which can be a serious one. A hepatologist is not an expert in kidney disease. They should refer you to a Urologist. A Urologist specializes in diseases and conditions of the kidneys and urinary track.
Avatar n tn There is really no "diet " for kidney stones. If a person takes very high doses of vitamin C, kidney stones have been known to develop. To help prevent possible kidney stones is to drink the daily-recommended fluid amounts of 8+ glasses (8oz or more) of water so your body is properly hydrated. Your sister needs to see her MD to be treated for the existing kidney stones. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn What would the probable main cause of Kidney stones in a 50 Year old female, considered to be in general good health? What treatment should be considered once the stones are gone?
Avatar n tn This one involves pus in the kidney and surrounding sack. His right kidney, where all of the stones have been, is down to less than 25% output and may have to be removed. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could be causing this and what the outcome might be?
Avatar n tn Hi, How are you? Kidney stones usually pass out through the urine stream with in 48hours. But this depends upon the size of the stone. A 4mm stone has 80% chances of coming out spontaneously, where as 5mm stone has 20% chances. Stones more than this size usually require treatment. Medical management includes calcium channel blockers, alpha blockers etc. Surgical treatment involves shock wave lithotripsy or percutaneous nephrolithotomy or open surgery.
Avatar f tn No i don't have any other pain conditions. Just stones and kidney infections as a result of the stones. I take antibiotics about 2 weeks out of every month to keep the constant infections at bay which i can't imagine is good. Im assuming he refferred me to the pain mgmt dr because he's afraid of prescribing pain meds on such a regular basis. I can understand it but its still not easy for me because I'm uninsured and can't really afford to add another dr to the mix.

Avatar n tn kidney stones develop by dehydration, weight loss, exercise and diet, if they are not treated they can grow and just cause more and more pain if you dont get them treated the pain may go away but it will come back believe me i have had them myself and the treatment is absolutly nothing well worth having it doent hurt its just lazer treatment which sounds scary but isnt its just like someone is tapping in the same spot repeadedly for about an hour and thats it.
Avatar m tn Pains after kidney stones have passed, the pains feel like they're in the stomach they come and go after eating meals, about 5 or 10 minutes after. all kidney stones inside passed at least two weeks ago, but still has these pains.
Avatar f tn How unusual is it for the stones to be in this meaty part of my kidney and since they are still in my kidney aren’t they just going to continue to grow larger? Are these stones causing damage to my kidneys? They don’t seem to be causing any blockages based on the ultrasounds that have been done, but I still have had frequent flank pain and blood visible in my urine prior to the surgery. Is there any hope that I will be able to be stone free and prevent more stones?
Avatar f tn It does NOT cause cancer however it can be a precursor to cancer, but not without other contributing factors (genetics, smoking, drugs, EMF radiation exposure, prolonged unhealthy diet, etc.) The composition of the stones is calcium. Think of it like a testicular Gall Stone. The stones usually appear in the epididymal tubes and block the flow of sperm to the vas deferens. However, they can actually occur almost anywhere in the testicle.

Avatar m tn It was found that my stone was calcium based and I was told to avoid all dairy products as well as some fruit and veg. There are 4 different types of kidney stones. Unfortunately, once you have had kidney stones the chances of getting another one are much higher.
Avatar m tn These substances can create small crystals that become stones. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is dehydration. Kidney stones may not produce symptoms until they begin to move down the tubes (ureters) through which urine empties into the bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys. This causes swelling of the kidney or kidneys, causing pain. The pain is usually severe. Kidney stones are common.
Avatar m tn I think that I have a fair idea about the diverticulitus (my mother has had the condition for over 20 years; but for the kidney stones, and gallstone - what can I expect the treatment to be?
3183592 tn?1344634338 I squirmed around trying to find any relief, but nothing I did made a difference. I had treated hundreds of patients with kidney stones, but now, I realized, I was the one who was about to wind up in the emergency room. My wife drove me to the hospital where I worked, and I greeted the ER director miserably letting him know that I thought I had a kidney stone.
506981 tn?1223188996 Then I went for scanning and found three stones in my right kidney and I underwent diuretic treatment. After that I went water therapy ie. morning I consumed 1.5lt. water every day. Then around one months time all three stones had come out via urinary track. Similarly in 2005 I had two stones in left kidney and did the same procedure.Then the stones came out. After that My doctor advised me to consume all the foods with out any restriction. Then I didn't met such problem.
Avatar n tn Meanwhile, ensure that you keep hydration high with fluid intake over 2000 ml and pass urine as frequently as you feel the urge. Reducing salt in diet has been known to prevent the recurrence of stones. D keep us posted on your doubts and progress.
362203 tn?1248813910 0 temp that wouldn't come down and severe vomiting and abdominal pain and they discovered her kidneys are just loaded with kidney stones and she has a large one blocking her urinary tract. They did surgery to put in stint's to drain off the infection and they will wait about 2 weeks to remove the stones. The doctor said her body is just producing A LOT of stones and she'll have to change her diet and take medication to help stop it. Thank God they figured it out.

519976 tn?1250508565 I had my first calcium oxalate stone at age 35 in my right kidney. The KUB done for the kidney stone and right kidney pain revealed a large tumor encapsulated in a membrane in my left kidney, so in that respect I was glad to have the stone. I underwent a left nephrectomy with no other follow-up treatment for the cancer and have been cancer-free since then. In the ensuing years, I have had a chronic problem with calcium oxalate stones.
Avatar m tn It wouldn't hurt to take a pumpkin seed oil supplement. It may help you not have kidney stones and help your kidney.
Avatar f tn The first thing I should ask you is have you done a 24 hour urine test to find out what type of stones you are getting. I mainly produce based stones and my doctor had me go on a low oxalate diet. It's been very difficult to do so but I have had great success with it. When I first was diagnosed I was getting two or three stones a week, but since I have been on this diet I haven't had an attack in over a month. I see that a lot of people with MSK see doctors that are not kidney specialist.
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.
