Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones gravel


228936 tn?1249097848 I have a history of kidney stones and was told that this lessor level of pain could be the gravel. I have kidney pain but not excruciating and also some pain in the testicle area.
Avatar f tn Herb Pharm makes some good urinary tract formulas and many good herbal companies make gravel root based preparations that can help remove kidney stones. Something for you to investigate.
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 I have a lot of pain mainly on my left side, alot of time enough to make be bend over . Urologist said can't be from kidney stones since they are still in my kidney. I may have passed something but nothing big enough to see since I have been watching when I urinate and have symptons. This has been going on since end of April - doctor said looking to remove them would be like looking for needle in haystack. Not showing on ultrasound.
Avatar n tn Check with the doctor for advice on which one to use if you suspect that may be the culprit. Hydration is very important to flush the kidney gravel out. It's even more important when taking narcotic pain meds. Always keep a glass or bottle of water handy. You'll be surprised how much intake increases if it's with you all day.
Avatar m tn After being diagnosed with a kidney stones of 3mm more than a week ago, I still haven't passed it but I passed 7 other stones a little bit smaller. I keep them all. My right side of back, my abdomen and grion hurt still even with the pain meds prescribed to me. Why is it taking so long to pass?
Avatar f tn I am a poor water drinker which contributes to the formation of most kidney stones. I suggest that you have your stones analysed if you have not done that. I was told by 2 urologists that there is nothing that I can take or do that will change my situation. Both urologist told me the same as what yours said, my chronic back pain was not related to kidney stones. They were correct and I was diagnosed with other issues that was the cause of most of my chronic low back pain.
Avatar n tn I have been reading many message boards and feel am self educated about kidney stones by my own body. Each kidney stone is unique in severity of pain. The bigger ones don't always have bigger pain. The largest I have passed was5 ml. I just dont know what to do anymore. Im tired of passing them, tired of being in pain, tired of missing work and could be in danger of loosing my job. The painkillers are great , but takes a day or so to get back into functioning mode after taking them.
Avatar n tn I have a history of kidney stones, but have not had symptoms for several years. The past two weeks, I began to have blood in my urine, and pain in the left flank. The x-rays showed a 4mm kidney stone in the right renal pelvis. My question is how big is a 4mm stone? I did pass gravel several times recently, and the pain was on the left side.

Avatar f tn If you also suffer with reoccurring kidney pain whether you are passing stones or not...please respond as I am relieved to know I am not the only one. Beginning to think that I would never find someone that can identify with me. I would like to exchange information with another woman that has been experincing similiar symptoms. Thanks for your time in advance.
Avatar f tn Have you had an IVP test? This is an x-ray with contrast, and is the best test for kidney stones.

However, urologist told me that my kidney disease and kidney stones SHOULD NOT cause pain (unless actively trying to pass stones). i can completely tell its my kidneys that are inflammed on and off.
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'm 26 years old, female. Family history of gallbladder disease without stones includes father, both grandmothers. GI prescribes reglan, prilosec - no relief. GI then sends me to a surgeon for laparoscopic cholocystectomy with a liver biopsy. Surgeon agrees and schedules. Insurance stops surgery, says they won't pay if no stones or significant physical disfunction are found at time of surgery. Have gotten third opinion that says to do cholocystectomy. Should I risk the surgery?
Avatar m tn I can also taste ammonia when I'm 'working' on them. KIdney stones are associated with uric acid which has an ammonia smell as well. Maybe this 'virus' produces these crystals as a by-product. Every now & again I pull out a little bit of what looks like black cotton wool, so this stuff may be the organism itself?
Avatar n tn I assume the CT scan was clear for stones? Sometimes you can have tiny gravel that won't show up which can cause pain like that .. especially after an infection I have found that things like gravel and debris are *on the move* and cause pings/pangs after antibiotics and/or anti-inflammatories .. my frequent UTI's are driven by passing small stones and/or infections from inside the stones but I am currently stone free .. however, still have pings/pangs/mild fleeing pain ...
Avatar n tn 2) Kidney stones are certainly possible. However, there seems to be an infection present as well with the fever. Although stones can lead to infection, you want to investigate the prostate and scrotum to evaluate for prostatitis and epididymitis respectively. 3) It is possible, but unlikely, that the exam may have led to the pain. I cannot recommend any treatment without examination - so you may want to bring this up with your personal physician.
161647 tn?1280611763 I am a chronic kidney stone producer and usually have around 5-10 stones in each kidney at a time, passing 1-4 stones a month every month for the past 10 years now. Needless to say it's a horrible condition and for people that have never had a stone I wish they never do because it's not easy... You'll have that "gravel" out in no time. Good luck!
Avatar n tn , which means in medical terms, fragmented particles of kidney stones. If this is going on for a week or 2 you should get it evaluated by having a urinalysis. Drink plenty of water!!!
707438 tn?1240963240 well after calling the drs office again this time i am passing gravel like urine im sure those of you that have msk know exactly what i am talking about they have decided to send me back to the er i am so not looking forward to going there expecially after my visit just last night but then what do i expect just cuz they know what is wrong doesnt mean that they have any answers to give me about it right?
Avatar f tn Out-patients might be necessary to get a prescription so you can have relief until it/they pass. My husband has kidney stones. He is not supposed to eat lots of peanut butter or peanuts or kidney beans, etc. Drink lots of water everyday - stone or not. Let me know how you do.
707438 tn?1240963240 I am in so much pain passing gravel and small stones i called the doctors and all they can say is take the meds you were given i told them i did and its not working and they say tuff you cant go to the er what do i do now i feel like every day is a struggle and that no one believes or even cares around here sometimes i just want to disappear forever but then my kids would be lost with out me so some how i just keep going but today i can barely get out of bed and it hurts soooo much.
Avatar n tn There are several things that could be responsible for your pain. The obvious given what you stated .... moving Kidney Stones! However if it is Kidney Stones be prepared for that pain to become extreme and possible send you to seek immediate medical attention. It's been several days since you posted how are you doing today? Again if it a kidney stone the pain can wax and wain as the stone moves and then can stop. If it's a very tiny stone, gravel..
Avatar n tn Did the Dr put you on a full course of antibiotics for your "kidney infection" or take you off when the culture was negative? Many times stones can cause UTI's that don't show up positive. Did they do a CT Scan?
Avatar n tn I am 45 yr old male with a history of kidney stones, both personally and in my family history. I've had 3 bouts with stones(calcium) over the past 8-10 years. The first two times the stones passed naturally, with emergency room visits. The third time I had stones, was in the beginning of 2007. My urologist said the stone was 1.2cm and was in a section of my kidney where it would never pass naturally. He suggested the Lithotripsy, which was done in March 2007.
Avatar m tn Rushed to ER, where a CT scan was done. 3 stones were detected - one in ureter, and 2 in kidney. Doctor could not reach the stone so he ended up putting the stent and asked me to drink water (he predicted stones to be uric acid stones). Then I went for ultrasound every 10 days. 1st ultrasound said I have only 2 stones remaining. 2nd ultrasound said I had 1 stone of 6mm remaining. 3rd ultrasound said I had 1 stone of 8mm.
