Avatar f tn my husband has 3x6 mm stone in his left ureter with mild urinary obstruction how serious is this and what do we neeed to do please help
Avatar n tn Roughly a year ago I was in the urologists office because of a similar sized stone in my right kidney. When I was x-rayed for the stone in my right kidney, there was no stone in my left kidney. My questions are: Am I going to continue rapidly developing stones for the rest of my life? How painful will the removal of my stent be? How do they remove the stent?
Avatar n tn I have had half a dozen kidney stones in the last year or so. This definitely sounds like it could be a stone. The pain generally happens as the stone goes into the ureter and travels to the bladder. Once in the bladder, it doesn't usually hurt too much but may cause frequent urination, etc. If you don't have anymore pain, i would just strain your urine for awhile and wait to pass the stone. If you have more pain, you can go to the ER and have a scan done.

895634 tn?1283992810 Causes, incidence, and risk factors Kidney stones are common. Some types run in families. They often occur in premature infants. There are different types of kidney stones. The exact cause depends on the type of stone. Stones can form when urine contains too much of certain substances. These substances can create small crystals that become stones. The stones take weeks or months to form. •Calcium stones are most common. They are more common in men between age 20-30.
Avatar f tn With my last pregnancy i had such bad kidney stones that they were blocking my ureter (the tube going from your kidney to your bladder) which caused all the urine on my left side to be stuck in my kidney i got really bad hydronephrosis (excessive swelling of the kidney) and had to have a stent placed 4 times while pregnant to let the urine flow correctly again!
Avatar f tn Finally after she was in excruciating pain a x-ray was done and they found 2 kidney stones in right kidney. They had me give her pain meds for 2 days and the dr's figured they passed. Since then had a couple days that she was in a little pain. Then today started having really bad pain again, and more bleeding in urine. We're hoping they pass this time, and we'll be done with this. We don't have a family history of these, and follow up with the dr. next week.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with kidney stones at 28 weeks pregnant and my urologist pUT a Stent in my ureter and the pain was gone! But the stent is also not comfortable at all either I hated it!! hope all gets better!
Avatar n tn this pain is not continuous but occurs several times a day and not hurts a lot but i feel it and it is freaking me out. I feel like it is in my left ureter below belly button. my urine is ok, no blood in it, no obstruction, no back pain, no nausia, no fever. i also have history of kidney stones, there were two of them and they passed away from my system after causing a little trouble. please help me out and tell me a solution for it thanks.
Avatar n tn recently the problem has become much worse and I have been told I have 2 kidney stones in My left kidney. I had some blood in the urine and pain as well, and may have in fact passed a stone. My concern right now is the frequent urination. Can the 2 remaining stones in the kidney still be causing the urination problem if they are not moveing down the ureter? If the stones are contributing to this problem , would a medication such as Detrol help? Please advise.
Avatar f tn I've had bad re-occuring pains in my left side. I had an ultrasound, catscan and x-ray done. Also blood test and urine tests. The doctors say it may be kidney stones that they can't see, or it may be a stone that passed which caused swelling of the kidney and the ureter. Someone told me that the swelling may be caused by "parasites" ... Is this true? Please help.
Avatar m tn To clear up though, my stone is not in the bladder (it was first suspected to be) but lhas be confirmed as stuck in my right ureter - right at the end of the tube. So i'm concerned about the loss of function in my right kidney, as diagnosis was slow in coming, and resulted in me changing GP's. Here in the UK, we generally only go to A&E if we are in severe pain, or had somekind of accident.
Avatar n tn I am sorry for what you went through. Wish I had been on last year when you posted this, not that I could've helped, just that I know how horrible you felt. I can't believe they didn't give you any pain meds!! I was given percocet, demerol, & mepergan fortis which I was of course hesitant to take bc of the baby (my now 8 yo son), but the doc said being in extreme pain was way worse for him and me than taking the pills.

Avatar n tn Renal CT scan showed 1 mm stone in right kidney, 2 even smaller stones in left kidney. Was given hydrocodone for pain and phenagren in case pain meds cause nausea and told to see a urologist asap. My question is, if the stones are still in my kidneys how can they be causing all the lower abdominal pain and pressure. This pain is worse after I walk much, and when my bladder is getting full before I urinate. Urination does NOT hurt though. I have had no fever at all.
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 n tn Hi, How are you? Lithotripsy is a medical procedure that uses shock waves to break up stones in the kidney, bladder, or ureter . The pieces of stones usually pass out in the urine. This procedure is generally safe but can cause complications such as bleeding, kidney infection, pieces of stone can be left in the body, the kidneys may not work as well, or they may stop working, after the procedure. ulcers in the stomach or small intestine, or urine obstruction leading to pain and kidney damage.
Avatar m tn there are multiple stones in both the kidneys, highest measuring 5mm in right kidney and 4mm in left kidney. Doctor had advised me to undergo a laser endoscopy treatment. Is it necessary and to to be done mandatory or is there any other simple way to cure this without laser treatment????
Avatar f tn My Fiance, was given a drug called Flomax in which to relax her muscles in which to pas her kidney stone. She had just passed her Kidney stone and was in severe pain after the Lithotipsy. So much pain was also created by the fragments of stone passing through the Ureter and depending on how near the sone is to the kidney, the kidney may be under a little pain as affect of the waves of the Lithotripsy.
Avatar f tn pain in the left side of my back at my waist line. Pain in my bladder, and pain going down the front of my left thigh. How long should this pain last? It has already been over 1 week.
Avatar m tn The CT scan also showed I had a 4mm and 1mm stone in my left kidney and a 4mm stone in my right kidney. I was under the impression the stones in my left kidney were removed during my initial surgery in October. (I was wrong) During the winter, I would get what I would describe as an achiness or pulling again in my lower left abdomen and hip.
Avatar f tn I've been making stones since I was 18 (i'm now 39) so have been dealing with this issue for quite some time. Like your husband, I can tell when a stone is in my kidney, in my ureter, or in my bladder. I don't know how I know, I just DO. Over the years, I've become, like your husband, acutely aware of what that part of my body should and shouldn't feel like. Unfortunately for me, I'm not a candidate for ESWL's as my stones are too hard. I have cystinuria and make cystine stones.
Avatar n tn I have a kink in my left ureter near the renal pelvis. I have frequent UTIs that I take long-term antibiotics to prevent, but I still get UTIs sometimes, which have gone on to pyelonephritis several times, always affecting my left kidney. I experience a strong pain and a sensation that something is turning inside out or twisting sometimes when I urinate- I can tell if a particular urination is going to result in this pain because there is a delay before the flow starts.
Avatar f tn Are there any signs I should be watching for? I have right kidney pain, flank pain and also pain in the ureter. Are there certain signs to indicate a blood clot in the kidney? I am sooo sick and scared right now. Any help pleazz?? Thanks Cara PS Discharged from hospital Thursday.
Avatar m tn At this point it has been there for at least 3 months and I have no swelling of the kidney. 2. Is there any harm is stones staying in the bladder? I have 3 stones that are just sitting there. Thank You.
Avatar f tn Finally my dad rushed me to the ER where I spent 8 hours, they gave me an IV with tramadol and gravol. I had an ultrasound where ultimately they saw my left kidney was enlarged and my left ureter seemed to be blocked as no urine was visualize escaping from it. However they weren't able to see any stones. Ultimately they sent me home with morphine pills and a strainer to pee in and told me if the pain doesn't improve or worsens in a week, come back.
Avatar n tn I am 58 yrs old, have BPH and had not taken medicine for the condition, as symptoms were not that bad. While in S. America in November, I had pain which was thought to be from kidney stones. I was given scopolamine. The doctor didn't ask about BPH and I didn't know that the med had side effects related to prostate. It became hard to urinate any more than small quantities at a time. I began retaining fluids, something that was determined after I returned home to US.
