Avatar n tn I have had numerous kidney infections and stones over the past few years. I had a stent recently put in because of a narrowing at the UPJ. I am having alot of pain from the stent. My Uro. said before he put the stent in that I would be able to resume a normal life while the stent is in place. I have frequency, I have to go about 30 times in a 24 hr. period and I am taking ditropan xl 5mg. I am also on pryidium plus 2x's a day.
Avatar f tn Hi, Kidney stones often do not cause any symptoms. Usually, there is extreme pain, which begins suddenly when a stone moves in the urinary tract and blocks the flow of urine.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.
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 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 I'm not a doctor, but do have too much experience with kidney stones. For me, I'd get pings and pangs in my kidney as well as microhematuria (blood you cannot see by eye) in my urine when I have stones. I've also had the flank pain you describe .. for me it's been in the lower back. I hope with lots of water your stones move out for you uneveventfully. Please keep in touch. From what I've read stones <5.0mm usually move out on their own with a high % of non-complications, etc.
Avatar f tn As you have had/still have calcium oxalate stones, your risk of getting more kidney stones is much increased. Avoid the foods mentioned and browse the web for more information on oxalate rich foods that you should avoid or eat less of. It is also very important to always stay well hydrated. Your urologist may have advised you to drink 2 litres of fluids (4 pints) during the day, more if you are doing exercises that make you sweat or perspiring in hot weather.
503291 tn?1229423121 I'm in a similar stage of things, myself (ultrasound results came back today -- "several" stones, but I've no clue of exact numbers nor size, and the gallbladder itself apparently is a wee bit tattered from the passage of earlier stones, but nothing terribly horrid; my GP is hooking me up with a specialist in the next few days/weeks for the next step) and as far as I can tell, there's four primary methods.
Avatar f tn Urologist performed cystocopy (normal), ultrasound (normal with R kidney hydronephrosis), CT scan showed no hydronephrosis but two 2mm non obstructing LEFT kidney stones. I keep having symptoms of what feels like uti that subsides with drinking a lot of water. Macrobid removes all symptoms while i'm on it but they return 2 days after I stop taking them. I don't have any other symptoms, the pain I usually feel is bladder discomfort and pain in urethra, some burning and urgency.

Avatar f tn definitely could be stones. i had 1 and mu hubby had them 2x.
Avatar m tn So i went to a eregular doc last tuesday and they did see the 'seeds'. They said it was either kidney or bladder stones(second most common kind). Meanwhile i starred to have pain in the lymph nodes in the groin region, some testicular pain, and minor nausea and light headiness off and on. I have an appy with a P.A at a urology clinic tuesday. I have not past any stones since wed. and they pain while urinating has gotten better, but I am still have all the other symptoms.
Avatar n tn You will need to take care to restrict certain foods in your diet, especially vitamin C, as it has been reported to aggravate signs and symptoms of both kidney stones and interstitial cystitis.
Avatar n tn I had a bladder exam by a urologist they got me into yesterday, who said I didn't appear to have bladder cancer & it just looks like it's an infection that hasn't yet responded. So he gave me a Rx for Macrodantin, which I filled but haven't taken. After the red spots appeared, I called the OnCall gynecologist, in tears, because I now think it could be genital herpes. I have never had an outbreak or anything even close to this ever before.
409451 tn?1206900232 I feel like I'm sitting sitting on glass before my period and a little into it so I always know when I am going to get my flow. Endo and kidney stones can cause bladder problems however endo doesn't produce blood in your urine not that I have heard of anyway but don't quote me on that. Most cases when there is blood in your urine is when you have a uti or kidney stones.
Avatar n tn but i sit here , on the toilet typing this , as for the last two days i have had horrific cramps and diahorra (sp) . Its heart warming to know that all my symptoms are of those relating to kidney stones .
Avatar m tn As far as I know, these are the only treatments - http://www.mayoclinic.org/kidney-stones/treatment.htm "Watchful waiting About 85 percent of the time, kidney stones are small enough to pass during urination. This occurs usually within 72 hours of the start of symptoms. The best treatment for these small stones is to drink plenty of water (as much as 2 to 3 quarts per day), stay physically active and wait to pass the stone.
Avatar m tn I just had a CT scan to check for kidney stones and I was told that I had none visible but that it did show that I had gallstones. All of my symptoms point to kidney stones, not gallstones. My pain is on the left side and severe nausea that is getting worse even though the pain has lessened in the last 24 hours. My doctor ordered the CT scan since I have a history of kidney stones. Can a CT scan miss the stones?
Avatar f tn The doctor can arrange for a blood test to check her kidney function and also send your daughter for a ultrasound scan and referral to a urologist if there is a problem still with the kidney or confirmation of a kidney stone. Stones can be extremely small like a grain of sand or much bigger. But they do cause pain and discomfort when they start to move and can cause recurrent kidney infections as they damage the inside of the urinary tubes as they move.
Avatar n tn Hi, This could be an infection in the kidneys or kidney stones too. UTI or urinary tract infection is due to undue growth of microbes in the urinary pathway. This may be caused by spread of infection from a nidus of infection in the tract, from blood or from some other adjacent infectious tissue. Bladder infection may result in symptoms of urination, frequency urgency etc with fever and lower abdominal pain.
Avatar n tn Hello, If the ultrasound scans have shown some problem with the kidney then you should get kidney function tests done to rule out kidney causes which seem to be responsible for all your symptoms. My sincere advice is to consult a nephrologist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn This refers to a kidney infection, usually from bacteria that have spread from the bladder. Your right kidney could be swollen due to pyelonephritis or hydronephrosis secondary to obstruction in the ureter. Hydronephrosis is a condition when the kidney swells up as there is an obstruction in the flow of urine.
Avatar n tn I feel physically better now, just the bleeding is concerning me mostly because my last menstrual cycle was very late December, so I'm not due anytime soon. I'm wondering if this is normal with bladder or kidney infections, or if maybe this is a possible miscarriage that I was unaware of? Looking back now, I had extreme soreness and sensitivity in my breasts for a good 3 weeks which I don't get as a PMS symptom, but when my period arrived, I figured I wasn't.
1301089 tn?1290670171 It very much sounds like the symptoms I get when I have a bad bladder infection. I feel the pain in my kidney and bladder area, all the way down. I was on 100mcg Fentanyl and could feel every bit of it. Definetly get it check out! It sounds like you have a lot worse symptoms than I did when I thought I had one last. They sound very much like how I feel when I know for sure I have one, though. I hope you get it check out and that you feel better soon!
Avatar f tn I went to a different dr this time and he gave me a urine test and they found the same thing, just a trace of blood, so he didn't want to put me on antibiotics again because he didn't know for sure what was wrong with me so he made me an appointment with a urologist and he also gave me a couple weeks of flomax for my symptoms just in case I had kidney stones.
