Kidney stones in the bladder

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones in the bladder


Avatar m tn sensation when urinating, stream is weak and color is mildy yellow. Could this be a kidney stone stuck in my bladder or is there another cause.
Avatar m tn Generally you feel the pain as the stone goes from the kidney, through the ureter, to the bladder. While it just kind of hangs out in the bladder, it causes your bladder to spasm a bit making you feel like you really need to go even though there is not much urine in there. I know it is difficult to do, but try to drink a whole lot of fluid and wait quite awhile before going to the bathroom. Use force when you do go to the bathroom.
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 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. It is best that you have your kidney stones checked by your doctor for proper management. Drinking plenty of fluids may also help. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn If the stone is too large to pass easily, pain continues as the muscles in the wall of the narrow ureter try to squeeze the stone into the bladder. As the stone moves and the body tries to push it out, blood may appear in the urine, making the urine reddish. As the stone moves down the ureter, closer to the bladder, a person may feel the need to urinate more often or feel a burning sensation during urination.
Avatar n tn The stent can be very irritating to the bladder as the tip of the stent moves around the surface of the bladder, causing urinary frequency, urgency, pain, and blood in the urine. A simple X-ray of the abdomen can be obtained to check the position of the stent to make sure that it has not migrated down from the kidney into the bladder, which can aggravate your symptoms. If it has moved down, your urologist may choose to replace the stent.
Avatar f tn This is always a possibility when ureteroscopy is done to eliminate stones. The tip of the stent rubs against the bladder, and can cause bladder pain or a feeling of always needing to urinate. The stent does widen the ureter to make a return look much easier to get the stones out.
Avatar n tn 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. This will help confirm the diagnosis and rule out other problems.
Avatar n tn No, not all kidney stones will past on their own. Depending on the size of the stone or stones and where they are located they might need to be surgically removed. As to whether yours will still pass on it's own I can not say. That is something you will have to ask your urologist.
Avatar f tn Well I had really bad pain on my left side to the point I was crying so I went to the hospital and there keeping me over night to pass my kidney stones. Anyone else gone through this?
Avatar f tn From the way I understand it.......The real pain is when the stone is going from the kidney to the bladder. It rips its way down some tubes and causes all the pain. Once the stone is in the didnt hurt me that much to pee it out, which happened 2 or 3 days after the attack. Tell him to drink plenty of fluids (water or beer) my doc actually told me beer was a good idea because you will pee more often and you might be drunk by the time you pee it out.
Avatar f tn Worst pain everrrrr,, I get them with every pregnancy this is my 4th, I passed the stone and caught it in a cup thing my doc gave me, he sent it to the lab to test it and see what was built up in the rock, and to my surprise it was all the minerals from the prenatal pills, I quit taking them and have been feeling great, I am now 24w, I try to take one pill every 1 to 2 weeks because I feel the need to, but yes I've had them several times with my other pregnancys and never knew why, good luck.
Avatar m tn i have been to see my gp a month ago with kidney stones, painfull cramps ,the pain has gone but im passing alot of blood when i urinate and it also stings when i urinate which is about 20 times a day im male and 29 years old any help please
Avatar f tn They make a small incision on your flank (your mid/lower back), and access your kidney from the outside (they attack it from the top, usually). They'll make an incision in the top of your kidney, and pull the stone out through the incision, then pull it out of your back. The recovery-time for a PCNL is far longer than a cystoscopy or a ureteroscopy, as there is cutting involved, whereas with a cysto there's no cutting (they're just inserting a scope).
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 f tn I went to the doctor today and she said it was kidney stones but I need to go see a Urologist. Last time I have kidney stones I was in worse pain then when I was in labor and ended up in the hospital. Well I can not get in for a few more weeks. Do you think it is kidney stones or something serious? There was blood and protein in my urine but no sign of infection. She also did not give me meds for the pain she does not believe in narcotics.
Avatar n tn Once mine pass into my bladder i feel relieved. Passing the stones from my bladder out doesn't bother me its passing from my kidneys to my bladder that bother me the most.
Avatar f tn Cystitis (inflammation of the bladder) can be a cause apart from kidney stones. Conditions of the reproductive organs giving rise to pain include endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts, fibroids. If you hav ealready consulted a Gynaecologist and any abnormality is ruled out, then it most probably is due to the kidney stones. You can take the medications that have been prescribed for the pain. ref:
Avatar f tn She said i have kidbey stones that i have to let pass and ive never been in such pain.. i was throwing up pisssing my pants and experiencing the kidney stones all at once. she gave me painkillers and im waiting for them to pass.. has anyone else had an experience with being preg with kidney stones??
5900973 tn?1396067991 My doctor told me I could get a stent in so they would pass easier, but the irritation to the bladder and the risk of infection would make it not worth it since I'm already so far along. I hope my little man is prepared because he might be getting here a couple weeks before his due date. Definitely not what I wanted, but the doctor says it is best for both of us for the baby to be born if the stones stay stuck.
Avatar n tn Hi, Lower back pain on one side that increases on resuming activity after one has been lying down for a while and pain radiating down one lower limb, mainly the inner side of the thigh and the back of the knee has been associated with kidney stones or ureteral stones. Bladder infection is usually characterized by increased frequency of urination, pain or burning sensation during urination, lower abdominal pain of a dull. cramping type, and some amount of back pain, and blood in the urine.
Avatar f tn Anyway this is only my second time dealing with them even though it is only a few weeks apart, and would apprechiate any info you have on the subject. I still have about 5 stones in my right kidney so i am sure i will be dealing with this often. I will definately keep in touch, and if i can ever be of help to you just let me know.
1226479 tn?1267209290 Causes include lesions of the urinary tract, disease of the prostate, trauma, tumors, malaria or stones in the urinary tract. 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.
472139 tn?1211336163 wow. it's the week of the kidney stone! bubba i have a kidney stone i'm trying to pass right now (ouch!) and was in the ER all last night, also. so i feel for you. literally. the ER doc says they are more common late spring/early summer due to people getting outside, being active, sweating more, and forgetting to up their amount of liquid intake.
Avatar f tn I'm 19 wks pregnant and I could not imagine going thru this again! I'm still in the hospital I have no more stones but they do think I have a infection in my bladder:( Im just ready for this to be over and I can take care of me and baby in the comfort of my home. Was there, or is there anything I can do to prevent this happening again?
Avatar f tn Formation of kidney stones is increased when the body is dehydrated. Some stones form from lots of kidney infections and cysteine stones are hereditary. So do make sure that you never get dehydrated and drink plenty of water.

Avatar n tn the vet just found 4 stones in my yorkies uerkra near the end, is there anything else besides a diet or surgery we can do to help, they did a cather andpulser only moved 1 up some
Avatar m tn From what I have read, stones should pass in 24-48 hours, and I definitely have stones, the x-rays the ER gave me said so. But why do I still have them? My main concern is kidney failure. If gone untreated over a time period such as mine, can stones lead to kidney failure? Any knowledge of this subject would be much appreciated.
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.
