2186782 tn?1390585573 Thanks for the quick reply. Not passing any stones now. Just looking for a more palatable remedy then olive oil and lemon. Which works great if taken at the first signs. And I've had the "privlage" of passing about 4 more since my first stone.
Avatar m tn Yes, they will hurt when their moving. Have you been to see your Dr to see if this is indeed what's going on, your passing kidney stones? If not then you should see him/her as soon as you can or go to the hospital. Some of them are too large to pass and they can do a painless procedure to break them into very tiny pieces, plus you'll get pain meds.
1030245 tn?1252725214 i have never had kidney stones but they say that passing kidney stones is like being in labour so at least you know what to expect!! lol ....Im sure something will get going!! Fingers crossed.,,just remmeber the longer baby stays in there the better!!
Avatar m tn If you only had one stone, slight discomfort after passing it is possible, but that discomfort should not last very long. 3 mm stones normally do not cause me any discomfort after they pass. It's usually the ones bigger than 3 mm that cause me what I call "aftershocks", or discomfort for a little while after I pass a stone. That discomfort certainly doesn't last more than one day either and is very off and on and not steady discomfort.
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 Congratulations on your pregnancy. Kidney stones are not uncommon and they can occur during pregnancy. It sounds like you are passing the stones (hard white balls when you urinate). Usually, your doctor will give you a strainer and have you strain all your urine. YOu then save the stones and they can be tested to determine what type of stones they are (for example if they are related to diet or not). IF you have not done this yet, you may want to ask your doctor about it.
Avatar n tn I had surgery a week ago to shockwave my kidney stones and had a stint put in to help with the passing of the stones. I have had one week of very painful urination. I feel the pain worse after I have urinated. I can not see that I have passed any of the stones but it is so painful to urinate. I was on antibiotics for 5 days so I don't think it is an infection. Is the feeling I am feeling grains of stones being passed? I am afraid this pain is never going away.
Avatar f tn Why will my urologist NOT give me anything for pain from kidney stones? I have been passing 10+ kidney stones for about 9 weeks now. Just started seeing an urologist last week and he says he doesn't know what's causing my pain and can't give me anything. Said I need to see a pain management doctor. I don't understand what he means by the stones shouldn't be causing pain, I've brought in the stones I've passed.
Avatar m tn Every time I urinate ( which is like 20 times a day) it feels like I'm passing blades and I get a sharp pain in my kidney. There is also blood present that I can see, but not every time I urinate, mostly in the mornings and later in the evenings. I must admit that the pain is getting better everyday. My question is, are all these symptoms normal and when can I take the pipe thingy out?
Avatar f tn My husband is currently passing a kidney stone. Aside from the narcotics and the doctors telling him to drink plenty of fluids is there anything out there that helped you pass the stone easier? I don't like seeing him in this much pain. We have been to the hospital 3 times and they just keep sending him home!
1619332 tn?1299021545 Well just last Sunday my husband took me to the ER again because I in horrible pain and I knew what it was, it felt just like last time, just on my right side this time. Sure enough I was passing one of my right kidney stones. Well they called my Urologist up to the ER to come look over me and they saw the kidney stone that I was passing this time was 2.9 millimeters and it seemed to hurt so much worse this time. Well to make matters worse I had a 145 heart beat and was very low on potassium.
Avatar n tn I had an xray done and they found that I have 2 kidnet stones that are found to be in the kidney still. They say that the stones are on the left side. Now recently it hurts all over in my abdomin and into my back. If the stones have moved is this something that is part of the process? The doctors arent in until Tues. and I am just praying that this holds off until then. I was suppose to have them broke up but she thought I could wait. What does it sound like?
Avatar f tn Come to find out I have two kidney stones one that is in the process of passing and one that is still in my kidney.. I am 27 weeks ... Has anybody else had kidney stones during their pregnancy? I'm honestly so miserable and I can't eat and I'm worried about my baby . Any suggestions ?
Avatar n tn has anyone else experienced a kidney infection/ stones during pregnancy ... what did u do for the pain .... all my doc told me was heat but my god is this miserable .. last time I passed a stone they dopped me up on pain meds which is obviously not an option this time ... please help me !! ...
Avatar f tn 20am I was rushed to the ER from sudden back pain that was unbearable I was so scared for my baby.. Came to the conclusion it's kidney stones and I became more terrified because there's not many pain killers they could give me other than tylenol and morphine, so about the last one I asked if it was ok for my baby, first they said not sure!!
5900973 tn?1396067991 I found out monday I have kidney stones for the 2nd time this pregnancy... :( I am going in friday for my csection and just hoping the pain eases up for me or that I just pass the dang stone... I dont want to be dealing with that after the birth. It just seems like bad timing, not that there is a good time for these things... Tmi but my urine looks like cranberry juice, kinda scary but I know its from the stone. I have been drinking tons of water.
Avatar f tn There are other types as well ( cystine, struvite , uric) Kidney stones may hold a genetic predisposition. In your case, the presence of kidney formers in the family may explain the onset of kidney stones at an earlier age. It is best to open lines of communication with your physicians. At this point, you may discuss on whether a referral to a pain management specialist may help.Continue following physician's advice regarding diet, fluid intake and exercise.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with kidney stones almost 3 years ago but I did not get them removed as my Dr told me they could not kill me or cause any life threatening diseases, but recentley I have noticed a little bit of stomach discomfort, I would like to say pain but it doesnt hurt , it kind of feels like something is there like gas, and my stomach gurgles a little bit and once in a while I will feel a little bit of a slight pinching pain in different spots over my belly , it feels like its through the b
Avatar m tn Sorry about your 7mm kidney-stone... not fun for you! I have to assume that you're getting the stone "crushed" via ESWL (Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy). Very safe & sound procedure that's well documented and has a very high success rate. The cyst on your ovary, unless it's in a 'fragile' spot, should be relatively easy to take care of with an Ovaria Cyst Decortication. Again, very safe & sound procedure that has a high success rate and is well documented.
540521 tn?1221703306 I have not yet passed the stones and i am still getting pain and the stones will not pass. The stones seem to bother me the most when i am standing and being active, Can kidney stones lead to kidney Failure? How much worse can this get? I don't know what else to do , I am at a loss, any help would be Greatly Appreciated. Thank You..
Avatar n tn Since having kidney stones currently and knowing what they feel like not being pregnant, I can safely say that I have had stones at least 3 other times between the ages of 17 and 27 (pain at that time was diagnosed as most likely a cyst -- when pain was severe - shortly thereafter went away - they said cyst burst - i am confident that the pain was kidney stones). With that being said, I'm tired of getting the kidney stones (as well as the tiredness, soreness and moodiness).
1226479 tn?1267209290 Also be good about straining, I am not but like I said for me passing stones is a profession almost. But if you catch the stone you know it is actually gone and not just silently damaging your kidney! Good luck and hope you have a stone birth quickly!
Avatar f tn Mine are very different from calcium stones as they are almost like glass and lithotripsy will not break them up. My family does not have a history of kidney stones either but since both my mother and father are carriers of the gene, I ended up with the disorder. Of course it's really rare (something like 1:300,000) but it is something I have to live with.
1278097 tn?1325615097 Drink loads of water and walk ...walk like you have never walked before. Gravity helps with it passing. Everytime I walked I got so much pain that I would vomit. Stock yourself up on pain meds I always have a stock of Litalgin just in case. Litalgin is a great pain med and is meant for gallstone and kidney stone pain. Thats all that I can tell you, walk walk walk and pain relief.
Avatar m tn 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.
585414 tn?1288944902 I have been passing kidney stones recently. I have had them for a decade or more but only recently started to pass them. I have an appointment next week with my urologist. I also follow up with a psychiatrist whom I have an appointment with next week but overall I am stable. However, every time a kidney stone starts to pass I encounter extreme psychosis and depression. Once they pass and are eliminated this settles.
Avatar f tn blood in urine could mean a stone is passing the only way to confirm this is a x-ray or even better is a ct scan not sure why it was not done in the er.I get blood in my urine when the stone is passing from kidney to ureters this is also when pain is at its worse a stone could also cause a uti and or kidney infection.
Avatar f tn I have pretty much always had hundreds of stones in both kidneys, (not an exaggeration) I would always pass 1 or 2 stones a year with no problem. I believe my ureter is actually larger cause I can urinate a fairly large stone and I don't really feel it, I will feel it a day or so prior in my flank but usually not too bad a pain. Only once about 5 yrs ago did I have one too large and was in the hospital for lithotripsy and a stint. My question is.
