Avatar n tn It is usually indicated for the treatment of an enlarged prostate. It an also be given in managing kidney stones in men and not as effective in women.

Avatar m tn There are no such warning signs but one can get dull aches in the flank region a day or 2 before onset of severe pain. “Kidney stones typically leave the body by passage in the urine stream, and many stones are formed and passed without causing symptoms. If stones grow to sufficient size before passage—on the order of at least 2-3 millimeters—they can cause obstruction of the ureter.
Avatar f tn the stones so they can analyze them) is the constituents of the stones. I believe a common kidney stone is made up of calcium oxylate. If your stone has some other makeup, it can be telling as to the cause of your condition. The majority of mine was not calcium oxylate, but the "lead" that gave the docs turned out to be a dead end, so I guess all my efforts to catch that little bugger were for naught. Ah well, at least I got to see my foe!! Sigh.

In your case as kidney stones are present, so these definitely need evaluation as nephrolithiasis or kidney stones are known to cause hematuria. Moreover it can cause further complications. My sincere advice would be to consult a urologist. I hope that helps. Please do keep me posted. Kind regards.
Avatar m tn Prostate stones unless very large in number, are seldom of any consequence. After your stenting (which I presume was for a ureteral stone), the ureter (the tube that brings urine from the kidney to the bladder) dilates around the stent and following removal of the stent the stone may more readily pass out of the ureter, It may still be in the bladder or have passed into the urethra. If not passing, it will need to be removed (through a cystoscope, undoubtedly. S.A.Liroff, M.D.
Avatar n tn Hello, A man can have sex after having kidney stones. But if kidney stone removal has been done by stent placement then stents with a thread may significantly hinder sex. The stent also can rest on the prostate gland in men and with ejaculation/orgasm the prostate may have movement that is discomforting to the patient and similar to severe cramping or irritation. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
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 m tn If you are referring to Transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) , a minimally invasive endoscopic procedure, this is used to treat enlarged prostate BPH that is causing obstruction. Kidney and bladder stones are usually removed through lithotrpsy or litholaplaxy, It is best that you discuss this with your attending physician also for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn Could be kidney stones or other similar issues. A Cyst has formed, or some urethral or other infections going on. Get to the doctor soon for sure. After a few days if it hasn't gone away I'd get right in if it were me.
Avatar m tn he examined it and he said it's fine and told me to have a urinary test, blood sample, ultra sound to find out any problems in my kidney. ( i reminded him that i had a high calcium oxalate level so probably thats were he got his conclusion from). the thing is when i got home, my urge to urinate lessened to my surprise. why is that? i didn't take any medications and could it possibly be from the rectum examination? and is all this check up like the ultra sound necessary?
1215383 tn?1266418042 One reason is that biofilm infections can set up with in and on kidney stones. Most big stones are known as infectious stones but bacteria can build biofilms on small and calcium oxalate stones as well. Feel free to pm for more information or links on Biofilm infection and kidney stones. Here is the link to the MSK support group here. Though you may not have MSK there is a lot of info on kidney stones, infection and chronic pain etc.
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 Lemonade, lemon lime soda, ginger ale, or anything with citrus.
Avatar m tn I have 7 kidney stones in my left kidney and one in the right. PSA is 6.3. Can the stones be some of the cause?
Avatar m tn Hi, Bladder stones may not be as common as that of kidney stones and mechanism for their development is not as well understood. However, in calculus or stone formation it is important to note that certain factors play an essential role: Urine supersaturation,the interplay between crystallization promoters and inhibitors, particle retention and the matrix content (1). Supersaturation refers to urine supersaturation ( less water,the higher the concentration of particles)with certain salts.
Avatar f tn I was born with a condition that causes my body to create kidney stones. I have been to the emergency room 4 or 5 times in the past 18 years for the large stones, small ones pass ok. My first stone caused bleeding and severe back pain also with pain in the lower abdomen area along with hot/cold flashes and vomiting. It may feel like someone is squeezing your kidney while at the same time stabbing it with an ice pick. I first though it was my appendix. I was wrong. Water, water, water.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with a minimum of 3 kidney stones (will be soon going for more tests to further research). I have been in a lot of pain and feel like the exhaustion is going to be the end of me. I spend every day with thermacare heating pads wrapped around me and have taken so much advil that my stomach is totally torn up now. In addition to the stones, one of my kidneys has a cyst in it that is shaped abnormally.
Avatar m tn Madam, I am also experiancing the symptoms like Larry88 --urinateing only part way -always feeling like there's more urine -able to force out only tiny drops of urine -experiencing is having to go frequently and quantity is large. I have gall bladder stone in multiples--no stones in kidny--i have unilateral kidney[left] conginitally--urine culture report shows no UTI but ultrasound shows prosatatis+ Cystitis. --# I have done hernia operation 1 yr ago[right] --So can u help me?
Avatar n tn I have a long history of kidney stones. Ive passed a fair number of fairly large stones and have also had lithotripsy. My latest CT revealed no large stones, but i still have smaller ones in my kidney. Recently ive also had a severe 'bout' of PE. In years past this has not been an issue for me as I can usually last for a substantial amount of time during intercourse. Right now, I have little control ejaculation after i become erect. Its almost as if soon as i become erect, i ejaculate.
82861 tn?1333457511 They can become elevated if there is a urinary tract infection, a kidney infection or a prostate infection, or the elevations can be caused by damage to the kidney (either kidney disease or kidney failure). A urinalysis with a microalbuminuria test will determine if it is an infection or kidney failute. Lyme disease can commonly effect the kidneys also causing kidney failure. So if it has not been performed yet I would have your dog's urine tested and perform a lyme disease test.
Avatar m tn hi. i had kidney stones throughout the week and went in and out of hospital until they confirmed i had two stones at the last junction of my tube and 1 still in my kidney. they discharged me on the saturday and the pain had gone alot. i was only experiencing little sharp pains and what feels like lower back pain. when urinating, it sometimes felt burny and uncomfortable. but nothing overly sore. i took the tablets to relax the tube on the saturday and the sunday and never again after.
1444601 tn?1305305623 He says I do not have MSK but I am a stone former an have several stones in both kidney. Largest stones 3 in left kidney measure of 5mm an growing. I have several small stones in both measuring under 2mm. The last IVP indicates no obstruction an no change in hydronephrosis. I have a lot of pain on my right side. The IVP indicates I have two 90 degree bends in my ureter an my kidney drains but a lot slower than my left.
Avatar n tn Obstruction may be from a urinary stone, a tumor, a blood clot, inflammatory narrowing or external pressure from any cause, including an abnormally placed artery to the kidney. One of the most common causes is enlargement of the prostate gland. Obstruction in one ureter, as from a stone, will affect only the kidney on that side. I would suggest a referral to a urologist for further evaluation of the prostate to ensure it isn't causing the hydronephrosis.
Avatar m tn Hi Everyone, I've had kidney stones 3 times now - twice in my right kidney and last week i had a stone in my left. I was very sick - alot - which i wasn't with the other two (although i felt sick). I have for a number of years had trouble starting and finishing urinating - always thought that was prostate trouble - but now i'm having doubts. I'm wondering if my kidneys are firing on all cylinders!!! After looking at various symptom pages on the i/net i'm looking at other aspects of my body......
Avatar n tnKidney stones: can be associated with sudden pain in the groin and flanks • Infection/stones of the urinary tract: (associated with fever, painful urination) • Tumors of the urinary tract (associated with abdominal pain, fever, weight loss) • Medications Some of the investigations which can be used for a diagnosis are urine examination, scans, cystoscopy, blood tests etc. Take care and do write in if you need more information.
Avatar n tn Patterson, Hematuria, blood in the urine, may come from the kidney, ureter, bladder, prostate or urethra. The cause may be due to infection/inflammation, stones, cancer, prostatic varices, sickle cell disease, or renal parenchyma lesions or glomerulopathy.
Avatar m tn The only places you should feel any pain at all from the kidney stones, is in the ureters, if you're female. (the ureters are the tubes that carry your urine from the kidneys to the bladder). In Females, once the stone(s) reach the bladder, it should be no pain at all, and it doesn't take long at all for the stones to pass when you urinate, the stones will be carried out of the bladder, through the urethra.
Avatar m tn I have a history of kidney stones. I just had one come out of my system a few days ago. After that I had a few blood clots. It did seem like there was tingling leading up to the clots coming out. It also seemed odd that there was a main part of the clots and then they kind of had tails on them. Even after I rinsed them with water, it remained the main clot and the tail.

Avatar f tn He finally went to our GP about two weeks ago, and was referred to a urologist for kidney stones but when the PSA result came back at 59 he was re-referred due to that high score. Meanwhile, he finished 9 days of antibiotics for UTI and has been taking Flomax every day that our GP prescribed. He said after a day on the meds..."well, I can finally pee". He told me (after the fact) that he had felt his bladder was always full, etc.
