Avatar f tn Urine tests showed protein and red blood cells but my blood tests showed nothing except for increased cholesterol. Eventually in late 2014 I was given a ct scan and finally diagnosed with 3 kidney stones. I was referred to a urologist who advised that since they were only visible on a ct scan, shock wave therapy was useless and I needed surgery (they would go in with a camera and blast them). The surgery was booked for May 2015. In April 2015 I found out I was pregnant.
192055 tn?1263559137 Hi, Kidney stones may be due to dehydration, diet, chronic stress, genetics, and even cadmium poisoning.If one parent had kidney stones, there is an increased risk in his or her children.Kidney stones tend to be recurring, typically reforming within seven years.In serious cases of kidney stones an ultrasound that breaks down the stones may be advised. I hope this helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn The foul smelling urine doesn't fit, unless there's a coincident urinary tract infection along with kidney stones, which may be seen in struvite kidney stones. Ultrasound is the safest investigation to figure this out, as there's no radiation involved. If your pain still hasn't gotten any better even after a few weeks I would see your doctor to make the ultrasound urgent, as symptomatic kidney stones left too long can cause problems for your kidneys.

7808984 tn?1406684565 I only take like it says. But while in hospital they found I had 2 kidney stones and AFib. They are trying to set me up to blast them into powder. I know that's not going to be fun. But the main thing was, I was afraid I lost my clean time. I've just about quit posting here because of it. Well I'm here to tell you just take them as it says and ask for help if you need it. Good luck with you kidney stones and God bless you.
Avatar m tn I had a CT scan in October (which detected kidney stones) I have had two u/s - one in April and one in July to check for stones. (Stones were the only thing seen). I have had two flat panel x-rays (June/July) prior to each lithotripsy to locate stones. (Stones were the only thing seen). All other tests from my physical are normal. I have an appointment with my PCP next week. I am going to mention endometriosis.
Avatar n tn If you have had any family history of renal stones, and if your life style has seen any recent stressful changes, it is possible that you could have developed new kidney stones that are predisposing you to UTIs. Have you had any imaging done to rule out kidney stones since this infection started? It is also possible that abnormalities in urine flow, such as vesicoureteral reflux, can predispose one to UTIs. You can follow a few measures to manage your condition and help speed up recovery.
Avatar f tn We have not done an MRI of the brain yet, I plan to take her soon to see if we find anything there. She might have been in pain because of the kidney stones, she was not in a good mood in the summer, but her behavior now tells me that she is not in pain, she runs and plays and never complains in the toilet. The seizures hit her in her sleep, late at night, and there has been no change in our daily routine to stress her.
Avatar f tn of course same CT results, stone in same place...f/u with another urologist at same office in 2 weeks. In the meantime I have had all my records forwarded to the urologist. When I finally went in Jan 11, he said i needed surgery because it looks likes it's been in almost the same spot since last april and was 6mm+. On Jan 23rd I had uteroscopy and they were able to break it up with laser and remove it, and they placed a stent.
Avatar n tn I have had kidney stones removed 4 time in the past 6 months..Now I have 2 small ones in my right kidney..My urologist says that they can't possibly be causing my pain..He refuses to give me pain meds and asked me to seek help from my primary care doctor..He suggusted I too had a cyst on my right ovary..Which by the way is impossible as I had that removed last year..UMMM ..ow what do I do?..I am in constant pain!!!!
3131687 tn?1345115061 But now I felt more sad and exhausted since this started last Summer 2012 that I always wake up around early in the morning. I feel pain around my lower back around my waist. I ignore this pain since I thought that this is like "panuhot" in my waist, but one time just this August that it really became more painful. My left and right near my stomach feel like it is weighted. Is this really a kidney?
Avatar f tn My problem is the pain im having in the kidney, which at times can reduce me to a mumbling wreck, i have been back to urology where i had the operation and gone through all the usual... wonderful... tests, to be told the kidney looks fine, and is working. When ever i ask about the pain i still experience im met with utter avoidance of my question. I have noticed certain foods and drink make the pain worse so try to avoid these.
Avatar m tn Finally, in October I was diagnosed with kidney stones. I had an 8mm stone that was lodged in the ureter removed. There were two stones remaining in the left kidney. I have been having the similar sensation I had last summer....left flank pain, radiating down my waist around my hip, sometimes into my groin.
Avatar n tn Water intake may need to be greater in the summer and in warm climates. A diet low in purine (ie, limited quantities of liver, kidney, brains, sweetbreads, fish, poultry, asparagus, spinach, peas, and beans) may aid in lowering the total-body burden of uric acid and other purine metabolites." "The overall goal of medical treatment is to dissolve formed stones and prevent new stones from forming. Citrate or bicarbonate is used to alkalinize the urine.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend passed several kidney stones last summer, and is complaining of having some pain again like he did last time; prior to passing the stones. He is not one to want to go to the doctor, but I do not want him to go through the same thing again. Is it normal for kidney stones to develop again? Is there anything that he can do to prevent them? Also, one of his testicles is hanging lower in the scrotum than the other. He claims that he is not worried about this, but is this normal?
Avatar n tn I've had pain in my left side and back (in the kidney area) for 6 months now. I've had CT scans, blood work, and an IVP and we've only come up with a 5mm nonobstructive stone in my left kidney. Both Urologists that I've seen said they don't think this is what's causing the pain...but I do. I also had a recurring UTI over the summer and I've never had one before. I'm 10 wks pregnant right now and not knowing what this pain is has been making me crazy.
Avatar n tn Dear Dr, I have an about 10 years of chronic kidney stones. I have passed four in the past five days. I recently had a car accident and it seems to have triggered an avalanche of stones. I summer I turned in 37 stones to be analyzed. I have had litho 5 times, stents placed 2x's, and numerous emergency room visits. My current problem is that I have constant pain on my right side kidney down to my groin. I am passing blood on a daily basis and stones are falling like the Roman Empire.
2110593 tn?1334184317 That's where I get pain in my kidney (right side below my ribs) I've had kidney stones a couple times. If you get a stone once your more likely to have repeat problems with stones. Maybe that is what you had and the last one past and the pain stopped. I was just posting in the addiction forum asking if it was possible to get that side pain from too much cough medicine. I seem to verbenas pain now about an hour after I take cough medicine.
Avatar n tn To whom it may concern: My boyfriend passed several kidney stones last summer, and is complaining of having some pain again like he did last time; prior to passing the stones.

Avatar f tn I have recently had a stent put in to help get to 2 small stones in my kidney I was in excrusiating pain and was rushed into hospital and the stent fell out while passing urine. I am still in pain but it is mostly controlled by pain killers and anti inflammatory tablets to. Do i have another stent put in as the surgeon couldnt get to the stones to laser them thats why he put a stent in? Or do i have proper surgery to remove them once and for all?
Avatar m tn It was during this time that I was told I had kidney stones but there was nothing that could be done about it. A few days prior to this incident of back pain, I started getting an itchy sensation at the tip of my urethra. I have had this before and was tested for everything (beginning of April) and it came back negative. I thought perhaps it was this new nylon underwear I had purchased. i avoid wearing those at all costs but laundry was low.
1916673 tn?1420236870 Dogs acquire phosphorus directly from food, and normally (in healthy dogs) any excess is excreted through the kidneys. In kidney disease the kidneys are damaged and cannot excrete excess phosphorus, which then acts like a toxic substance in the blood. Reducing phosphorus intake is therefore important (check all the foods you may be feeding, including treats, for phosphorus content). The additional way of controlling it is to introduce a phosphate binder.
Avatar n tn I don't know where to turn... I have passed numerous kidney stones in the past ten years...two just this summer alone. And there are more in the kidneys, as noted by my most recent CT scan. I have had fluctuating blood pressure. My current serum calcium is normal, though in the past it has been at the "high end of normal". My PTH has measured normal (currently 20.6 on a scale of 12-65 pg/mL). My IONIZED calcium is moderately high, (currently 5.52 on a scale of 4.65-5.30 mg/dL).
Avatar f tn As you are complaining of discomfort in the kidney area for a couple of months and have to urinate more often and feel that you haven't emptied your bladder, could be a sign of a Urinary Tract Infection. If you have kidney stones moving - they can take months to come down if they are moving; you would experience pain in the kidney area, or have renal colic (like wind pains in the belly). As they come down they can scratch and aggravate the tubes and hence cause infections.
Avatar f tn The doc said they were going to further test my samples but that it was looking like a kidney infection or kidney stones. Im supposed to hear more info in two days. But i am a little concerned.... ok no im not going to lie im a little scared. Everyone I speak to finds my symptoms odd and the fact that my illness came back is odd too. I just want to know if anyone can relate to me or if anyone has any other ideas of what it might be or any advice, anything! Thanks for reading.
Avatar f tn Ever since the issue with the Kidney stones I have had some issues with my kidneys, the stones did pass naturally. I am now 24 weeks pregnant, and experiancing intense pain in my right flank. I had a diagnostic ultrasound done on my kidney and they didnt find anything abnormal. I was told that I had a simple Kidney infection and was put on Bactrim antibiotic and Vicoden for the pain. It has been a month since that last problem, and I did finish all my antibiotics.
