Avatar f tn How unusual is it for the stones to be in this meaty part of my kidney and since they are still in my kidney aren’t they just going to continue to grow larger? Are these stones causing damage to my kidneys? They don’t seem to be causing any blockages based on the ultrasounds that have been done, but I still have had frequent flank pain and blood visible in my urine prior to the surgery. Is there any hope that I will be able to be stone free and prevent more stones?

Avatar n tn From your history of gynecological cancer in the past, this may represent recurrence of the cancer with invasion into the urinary bladder. It does not sound like kidney stones which, as you stated, can be quite painful. You have painless gross hematuria with clots which makes me suspect the bladder as the source. Did you have a follow-up CT scan? What did it show? Do you pass air when you urinate? Do you leak urine? How long ago was your surgery?
Avatar m tn These substances can create small crystals that become stones. The biggest risk factor for kidney stones is dehydration. Kidney stones may not produce symptoms until they begin to move down the tubes (ureters) through which urine empties into the bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys. This causes swelling of the kidney or kidneys, causing pain. The pain is usually severe. Kidney stones are common.
Avatar f tn I was always told how uncommon it was for a girl my age (first stones were at age 19,I am now 27) to have kidney stones and also plus because I am a woman and women don't tend to get them. I was never ever offered any help even after asking for advice from many doctors on what should I do?? I have had kidney stones at least 3-4 Times a year. But this past month I have passed 10 stones so far and counting. Each time at the ER I am prescribed pain meds and anti nausea pills and sent home.

Avatar n tn People can have urinary abnormalities which predispose them to kidney stones. The risk of stone recurrence is greater than 70%. It is important to get his stone treated then encourage him and his doctor to have a work-up to see what abnormality is causing his stones. No matter what the cause of his stones, the most important treatment is hydration. He should continually drink water/ to keep his urine colorless (very clear) and dilute. The testicle position is normal. You need not worry.
Avatar f tn They can be caused by any type of thing that blocks the flow of urine in the urinary tract which can be in your urethra, bladder or kidney. Kidney stones, for example. Kidney disease. Anatomy that is unusually shaped. You could have a genetic predisposition. Men should also have their prostate checked if they have chronic UTI's as that is a common cause of this recurrence. Not sure why anyone would opt to not treat a UTI since they are uncomfortable.
Avatar m tn Thanks for the response, 33 years, bloody hell, a few years has destroyed me, I had a double hernia op that felt way less painful than kidney stones for me, I have noticed chest pains all across the top of the chest that sometimes spread down both forearms, on the front of my throat and the top of my head, I'm starting to wonder if that's all connected to the kidney stones since I just happen to have had the kidney stone pain not long after the onset of these symptoms.
618766 tn?1221321332 2 34 male weight 100kilos was 90 and very active before this, Jan 08 this year I was rushed to hospital from work with pain in the back side and stomach, to keep a very very long story short under an xray and IVU they missed the stone but managed to spot it 3 weeks later. I had a 7mm son of bicth just out side the kidney.
110491 tn?1274485537 For the past month now I have been having intermittent dull, sometimes burning pain in my right kidney - nothing really bad that sends me to the ER, but bothersome nonetheless. At the same time I started noticing foam in my urine and started feeling really rundown, tired, with loss of appetite. Dipstick urinalysis, urine culture came back negative. Was put on Macrobid for 7 days and I started feeling better overall except for foam and appetite.
Avatar f tn He says it might be reflux, but he's more inclined to think kidney stones. We shall see! Thanks to all for the concern and I will update when I know something more.
1892056 tn?1321160164 This is a side effect of the stents which are expected to go away in a few days. If they persist then it can be due to recurrence of stones, stricture in the ureter or inflammation. I would suggest that you get a ultrasound done to check the possibilities. In case of stricture immediate action needs to be taken to prevent scarring. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar m tn i went back about a month later with same pain, and they finally told me i had 2 kidney stones in my ureter that were blocking my ureter, so my kidney would swell, and thats what caused the pain. the dr sent me to a specialist. i went to see specialist, and he said easy fix, they were gonna put me out, do a lithotripsy and it will be done, quick and easy..... a little while later we find out i'm pregnant! (YAY!
Avatar f tn Also get an ultrasound lower abdomen to rule out any kidney or ureteric stones. I sincerely suggest you to consult a urologist and get it evaluated. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar f tn Tests found that I was severely anaemic and dehydrated, but couldn't find a reason for the pain. I eventually had a C.T scan which showed that I had several kidney stones in both kidneys and one in my tube. I had a stent fitted to help the stone move, but that gave me a lot of pain too. Anyway, to cut a long story short I have been in severe pain for two and half years now, so bad that I can't work (I used to run a pub).
Avatar n tn I have been treated for kidney/ureteral stones 3 times in 4 years by cystoscopic removal and ESWL. Two stones have been sent for analysis. They were composed of calcium oxalate and calcium carbonate. I am not a big dairy product eater. In fact I get far less than the recommended calcium intake for women. I am a 34 year old female. My urologist seems to not be very interested in further testing.
2081455 tn?1332179587 I have been passing kidney stones since 2006. I recently saw a Urologist in November of 2011. I was told I had 2 large stones in my left kidney and a few small ones in my right kidney. I went to the Urologist because I had been experiencing terrible pain in my left kidney. In December I had my left kidney cleaned out by laser through the urethra. It took over 3 weeks to recover and it was the most terrible pain I have ever felt. They did not put a stent in.

Avatar n tn _ Dear AJ, The goals of treating kidney stones are to relieve pain, remove the stone, preserve kidney function and prevent recurrence of stones. The majority of calculi less than 4 to 5 mm in size pass spontaneously. Obstruction from a stone, whether partial or complete, causes a progressive decrease in renal function. Detectable renal damage usually does not occur in previously normal kidneys until complete obstruction has been present for over 4 weeks or more.
Avatar n tn I had a stent placed then removed in my vagina for kidney stones. Now I have alot of pain, itching and pressure in my vagina and pelvis area. Why?
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Kidney stones at times dislodge by themselves and the pain disappears. There are numerous speculations in alternative medicines which say that the stones disappear on medication, but Allopathy does not have any such treatment. Drink plenty of fluids, try apple cider and cranberry juice. These tips may help to flush out the stone if it breaks (but less likely).
Avatar n tn You need to be further evaluted by your urologist to look for any secondary stones or a recurrence of the stones. Get an ultrasound done.
Avatar n tn 60yrs old woman already menopause, history of kidney stones 10 yrs ago no operation was needed because the stones eventually melted with the medicine taken. now had symptom of what looks like light trace of blood in the urine. what is wrong?
