Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones questions


Avatar n tn Am I going to continue rapidly developing stones for the rest of my life? How painful will the removal of my stent be? How do they remove the stent?
Avatar f tn UTI can also be due to the polycystic kidney disease as well. Kidney stones and kidney failure are late-stage symptoms of the disease. I suggest you an immediate urologist’s evaluation. If the size of the stone is small, it’s usually treated with ESWL in which shock waves are given from outside and stone breaks into small pieces. On the other hand, if the stone is quite big, then the surgical removal of the stone is a better option. Also her renal functions need to be studied.

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.
Avatar f tn She was very sick just over a week before she was diagnosed, and they don't know if she was sick from the kidney stones,or if she had the stomach flu,and getting dehydrated caused the kidney stones. However she never really got too "dehydrated" when she was so sick. She did vomit alot, but was still having plenty of urine. So who knows. Any experience on how long these things take to pass? Thanks again.

Avatar f tn I read that some hyperthyroid people have problems with kidney stones because of the calcium issues we have. Anyone have any info on this?? I ask because I just spent a very early morning in the Emergency Room to find out I have a 9 mm kidney stone that just won't pass.
Avatar m tn Is there anyone else out there who passes kidney stones about once or twice a week?
Avatar f tn I'm so sorry that he is having this much discomfort form his Post-op Kidney Stones. I've never had Kidney Stones. However, if they made an incision of any kind, chances are that he isn't supposed to be in a bath tub. Usually they aren't allowed to get that area wet. PLEASE don't laugh TOO loudly at me IF there is no incision as I must emphasize that I DON'T havae a clue as to how they are removed.
Avatar f tn The simple answer to one of your questions is "YES", it very well could be kidney stones. Early last year I suffered with three kidney stones for about 3 months, off and on, with blood in my urine, both heavy to the point where my urine looked completely brown or red, depending on the day, or very light and almost couldn't be seen. After having contrast you might have, as you had, the severe urge to urinate, depending on your body.
Avatar f tn No i don't have any other pain conditions. Just stones and kidney infections as a result of the stones. I take antibiotics about 2 weeks out of every month to keep the constant infections at bay which i can't imagine is good. Im assuming he refferred me to the pain mgmt dr because he's afraid of prescribing pain meds on such a regular basis. I can understand it but its still not easy for me because I'm uninsured and can't really afford to add another dr to the mix.
362387 tn?1207277719 I feel very lost and not included on this forum these days. I don't know if it is just me or not. My last post didn't get much response and I was hoping for some help. I know this is not the doctors office but you guys are wonderful. Sorry everyone don't mean to sound like a selfish butt. I'm going through a rough time. This thyroid thing has made me feel like my life is over. I can't even take care of my family. Like today I slept till 3pm and still don't feel like I've slept any.
Avatar f tn Saw my urologist who ordered KUB Xray this past Wed and nurse told me I have ether new kidney stones or fragments that remain in L kidney. The fragment analysis shows that the stone fragments are 95% Weddellite and 5% Whewellite. When I asked the nurse to explain what this means , she told me "it is a mess". My urologist is very busy and quite unapproachable. My appt was cancelled yesterday and rescheduled for next Fri. I do not feel good at all.
Avatar n tn I have a few questions - Been diagnosed with multiple kidney stones in both kidneys - left side largest is 5 mm. I have a 2.5 cm solid mass in right kidney. I also have constant microscopic hematuria. I have a lot of pain mainly on my left side, alot of time enough to make be bend over . Urologist said can't be from kidney stones since they are still in my kidney. I may have passed something but nothing big enough to see since I have been watching when I urinate and have symptons.

Avatar n tn My 15 year old daughter had a CT scan to check for kidney stones. The doctor told me the results showed stones in both kidneys...more in the right than in the left. Also showed a 4cm by 4cm cyst on the right ovary. She put her on birth control pills for a couple of cycles to see if the cyst goes away. So we are starting month 1 with the birth control pills, and waiting for an ultrasound in a month or two. As for the kidney stones...
Avatar n tn I also have kidney stones, I am looking to learn more about what kind of diet or foods are good and bad for the kidneys. I would like to eat healthier and avoid the foods that are not good for my kidneys. Does anyone know of a website or have information that could help me out. So far all I know is drink a lot of water, and spinach is not good for the kidneys... Thanks everyone!
Avatar m tn I went to sonographer and he told me I have two kidney stones in my kidneys (one 4 mm in each kidney). From that day, despite that the doctor prescribed me some drugs, I did nothing except drinking a huge amount of water (I hope you can imagine what I mean from the word “huge”). Just two days ago, I went to the same doctor to tell me about the (increase in the) size of the stones. Surprisingly, he told me there is nothing in my kidneys and they are clear.
Avatar f tn My 60 year old husband passed small uric acid type kidney stones in August (per lab analysis of stones), had a blood test that showed high uric acid and was put on Allopurinol 100mg (twice daily) about two weeks ago. He recently lost weight after having an angioplasty with stent in late July (blood work shows normal range for cholesterol- blood glucose elevated at 117, blood pressure is normal, pulse 50 to 60).
1028300 tn?1252093974 I am almost 18 weeks pregnant and have kidney stones! They are supposed to be putting a stint in next Wed. The Dr. said that I might have complications such as kidney failure or contractions if I DON'T put the stint in, but I have heard that the stint is VERY painful, sometimes more so than just having kidney stones! He will change the stint every month until the stone(s) pass or the end of the pregnancy.The Dr. gave me phenegren and demerol for the pain. I am scared!
Avatar n tn 6) Wheat bran can predispose you to forming calcium oxalate stones. If you have recurrent stones, then cutting back on bran can be discussed with your physician.
