Kidney stones pictures

Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones pictures


Avatar f tn I've been having a lot of pain on my right side, front, back and side and the pain takes my breath away. I had CT scans and ultra sound to determine if I had kidney stones. Then they sent me for x-rays with contrast and I was told I had a floating Kidney. The nurse for his office said there was nothing that I could do for the pain. "Just deal with it". Wow how can I when the pain takes my breath away and the pain is so bad that I have to lay down in bed until it goes away.
Avatar n tn Either an IVP with pictures taken while lying and then standing will show the exact degree that your kidney is falling or a lasix renal scan in supine and upright positions will show your issue. A lot of doctors think this is a mythical condition, while others do take it seriously, however, surgery is only performed if you are symptomatic. Good news though, they are able to perform a laproscopic nephropexy!
Avatar f tn I have been lucky most have not been kidney infections. But from what I understand -- the stones are so porous that the bacteria easily is trapped in them. I wonder if the calcification works the same way ? Anybody know? Also I believe that we always have some type of stone activity going on but not all shows up on tests, leaving us wide open for infection. Just my two cents.
Avatar f tn I would suggest you seek a nephrologist or urologist at the nearest university medical center that specializes in kidney stones for further evaluation.
1963554 tn?1325451090 He said that his right kidney is destroyed and that his left kidney has about 25% left. He has a tumor within his bladder and his urine cannot pass thru which goes into his kidney and damages it. When we had Shaggy checked out in May our vet said that it's UTI...because I mentioned to him that he'd pee and then go to other spots and nothing comes out. So he was given anti-biotics. This went on for several months.
Avatar n tn Before mono I had kidney stones twice at age 18 and 20..none since. I have chronic constipation and go to the bathroom about 1 time a week. The more constipated I am the worse my bladder symptoms are as well. I have been to a neurologist who ruled out ms. I have been to physical therapy twice, which helped a little.....but got worse again when done. I have seen a internist who checked me for diabeties insipidus which I did not have.
Avatar n tn Hi, You can ask for an Xray, which would be quicker to schedule and to report, to check for the presence of kidney stones which my cause an obstruction of urine flow, even if only partial, and can predispose to UTIs. WBCs in the urine can be a sign of renal damage and inflammation, especially if accompanied by epithelial cells.
672662 tn?1542491420 Starting 2008, In China , an abnormal increase in infant cases of kidney stones. August 2008 China Sanlu Milk Powder tested with Melamine Sept. 2008, New Zealand gov't ask China to check this problem Sept. 21, 2008, lots of food products in Taiwan tested with Melamine 4.What happens when Melamine is digested? Melamine remains inside the kidney. It forms into stones blocking the tubes. Pain will be eminent and person cannot urinate. Kidney will then swell.
Avatar f tn A few hours after I had kidney stones remove( I had a stint placed in my ureter). , I developed a medium sized blood blister on my glands penis. I took a few pictures and contacted my urologist and explained what happened. He was shocked to hear this occurred. He does not feel this is immediately urgent. I tend to agree at this point . He stated that if it doesn't go down in 48 hrs contact him and to come in sooner than planned for the stint removal.
Avatar n tn I can't find any pictures or info on peripelvic cysts, been having severe pain in mid-right side of back. Have had kidney stones in past. Had CT done and results showed possible peripelvic cyst. Need to know what it is and view a pic of it. Any help would be great. I am now diabetic and concerned.
Avatar f tn I've passed a couple on my own, and had one get stuck long enough to give me kidney infection. Currenlty I'm fever free and stones don't hurt, but the right kidney always has a dull ache. Any ideas? THanks so much for everyone's kind input!
Avatar n tn Symptoms continued, except the pain moved to my left flank side (I have chronic kidney stones), and it was excruciating. I occasionally still get upper abdominal pain, much like indigestion, but it only occurs when my stomach is empty. I still get intermittent nausea, tingling in my hand and face, fatigue, weakness, and strange muscular twitching throughout my abdomen - back, under my ribs, my sides. My bowel movements have been normal and I have no reaction to food, fatty or not.
Avatar f tn Hey everyone! I was hospitalized last week for what turned out to be kidney stones and a horrible virus. they ended up doing an MRI while I was there and let me keep the CD from it. I posted a few pics from the MRI of baby and how he is inside me. Check 'em out! I've never seen anything like it!
Avatar f tn Almost like endoscopy procedure but with pictures of pancreas. I dont think its the ovary cyst. A kidney stone can be a possibility. I did have some bad mid flank pain when I passed a tiny stone. It hurt like 2 weeks before i passed it. I would consider getting both things checked Have your stools been normal?
Avatar f tn He's had two different MRIs though. Wondering if kidney stones would have shown up on those pictures? I will look into that, thanks.
Avatar m tn I saw a physician and he sent me for an X-ray and CBC lab. My xray showed no obstructions, no kidney or gallbladder stones and my CBC labs came back normal. I have had a dull pain in my upper right abdomen just below my ribs. It comes and goes. I am concerned about my gallbladder but there are no gall stones. Ive also had reflux on 3 occasions during this time. Im very frustrated and looking for help.
Avatar f tn Oh and kidney stones. Now back in Dec towards the ending or beginning shortly after we moved the back pain started. She was movn things as well then the pain started. She went to a hospital and they told her (i think they did x-rays) it was a pulled a muscle or some sort. He gave her sumtn but it didnt really help. So she went to otha hospital and they thought it could be an ulcer or gaul bladder but she left the hospital and didnt get the test done.
Avatar m tn Ended up going to the ER because the pain became so severe. First thing they thought of was gall bladder or kidney stones. But all the tests came back ok. They came to the conclusion that I have a spastic gall bladder and sent me home with Reglan. I've been reading some of the other posts on here with people who have similar pain in their abdomen. Unlike a lot of them I don't have vomiting. I have mild nausea and cycles of constipation and diarrhea.
Avatar m tn So four days later i went back again. Well this hospital preforms a ct scan looking for kidney stones. They found the kidney stones they were looking for. However they left me with this overwhelming fear after telling me that they seen a shadow on my lower left lung. I had 3 pictures taken so for the radiologist to say he didnt like what he seen, does that mean it was on all 3 pictures and does that mean there is something there. I'm a 25 year old mother of 2.
Avatar f tn Then the body fights the infection and the neutrophils rise and by day five of fever most blood pictures will show increased neutrophil count. Other than that it could be due to Vit B12 or folate deficiency or due to viral infection or autoimmune diseases or problems with spleen. The low RBC and hemoglobin indicates anemia.
587521 tn?1238508522 I have had very few bad days since my surgery in mid-November, to remove the painful build-up of stones from the collecting ducts of my left kidney. I recently (last night) passed two stones both less than 1mm. But my days without pain greatly out number my days with it. This is such an incredible change for me. I have posted some of the photos that were taken during my surgeries (the first attempt was canceled because my ureter was too narrow.
Avatar m tn Next day awoke with back pain, which was much more pronounced on the right side. Thought kidney stones initially, urine test, no protein. *Doctor prescribed Ibuprofen.* I took it on occasion, but did not take it unless pain was bad. Blood test ordered, all liver, panc, kidney function normal. *High White Blood Cell Count* Pain presented now in right side under ribs, with branching pain to center underneath sternum. Seemed to be associated with meals. Often food alleviated pain.
1222635 tn?1366399886 and when she fell asleep she would bury her feet against my kidney (which didn't help when I was 34wks and passing kidney stones, ahem) and stick her butt out so far in the front that (no joke) you could see the butt completely defined and feel her butt-crack by rubbing your hand over was so weird. she still sleeps like that.
Avatar n tn Problem is i have lots of stones remaining in the kidney from lithotripsy which will want to pass through this "kink" my concern is; will dilation allow the passage of this gravel once the stent is removed.
Avatar f tn @Criseldangeorge- Im classified as high risk due to my kidneys and gall bladder. With taken the prenatal vitamins the calcium cause kidney stones which if to large to pass will shut my kidneys down! I also have gall stones and pregnancy speed up the growth of gall stones if I get one to large and it gets stuck between the gall bladder and pancreas I will have to go into surgery to remove the gall bladder! Was put on a low fat and water only diet. Smooth sailing so far....
Avatar f tn I know you have had tests done but did any of them look at your left kidney? What are the symptoms of kidney stones? Kidney stones often do not cause any symptoms. Usually, the first symptom of a kidney stone is extreme pain, which begins suddenly when a stone moves in the urinary tract and blocks the flow of urine. Typically, a person feels a sharp, cramping pain in the back and side in the area of the kidney or in the lower abdomen. Sometimes nausea and vomiting occur.
Avatar n tn Im a 50 year old female with kidney stones sence i was 16 i have high blood pressure, hair thinning,loss of energy, cant concentrate, depression, osteoporosis, cant sleep, memory loss, heart palpitations, headaches, gastric acid, myasthenia gravis, bone pain,low vitamin D of 9.9 , pth of 16, blood calcium of 10.
Avatar f tn Low hematocrit is due to anemia, malnutrition, destruction of red cells by spleen, bone marrow failure, and blood loss as in stomach ulcers and irritable bowel disease or in kidney stones. Leukemia, multiple myeloma and rheumatoid arthritis are the other problems with low hematocrit. Persistent neutropenia can be due to Vit B12 or folate deficiency or due to viral infection. Blood cancers including lymphomas either result in very low or very high counts.
Avatar m tn I don't know of any health issues except for a couple of kidney stones in the past. I do have pictures I would provide if I knew how. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn I had no idea what they would tell me this was, then the doctor saw some redness on my back and is thinking its Shingles or kidney stones. He’s trying the shingle meds first, muscle spasm meds and nerve meds: Gabapentin 300mg Baclofen 10mg The morning the redness was not there, it could have been anything, like from my bath or heating pad, not sure. I am just keeping an eye on my left mid back to see if any rash appears and then I will fill the script I was given for shingles.
