Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones treatment free information


Avatar m tn As far as I know, these are the only treatments - "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 n tn When they found the staghorn in your kidney, what was the treatment? Why did it get so bad that your kidney had to be removed? I guess my question is what happened from age 43 to 45 as far as treating the condition when they found the staghorn? Thanks so much for your comments...they are very helpful!
Avatar m tn Hello and Welcome all the way from Denmark! I, too, have MSK but am doing ok right now with it and apparenlty "free of stones" .. I don't believe we are ever "stone free" but "free of stones that show up on tests" . I know another MedHelp member who lives in Denmark, too! How nice to have you on our community .... I'm sure many can offer you some great advice here ..
Avatar m tn It was found that my stone was calcium based and I was told to avoid all dairy products as well as some fruit and veg. There are 4 different types of kidney stones. Unfortunately, once you have had kidney stones the chances of getting another one are much higher.
1444601 tn?1305305623 The CT indicated at least 3 stones in lower pole calyx of left kidney and 4 small stones in lower pole calyx of right kidney. No obstruction in Kidneys or ureters. My urologist said we can't get those, pain meds are your only option. Does anyone out there know of other treatments?
757137 tn?1347200053 Magnesium will get rid of kidney stones, and cranberry juice will prevent them.
519976 tn?1250508565 I had my first calcium oxalate stone at age 35 in my right kidney. The KUB done for the kidney stone and right kidney pain revealed a large tumor encapsulated in a membrane in my left kidney, so in that respect I was glad to have the stone. I underwent a left nephrectomy with no other follow-up treatment for the cancer and have been cancer-free since then. In the ensuing years, I have had a chronic problem with calcium oxalate stones.
Avatar f tn Hello MSKers! I am new to this support group! I have had surgeries, stints, numerous CT scans, ultrasounds, KUBs & more! I go to my doc every 6months or yearly, depending on my status of stones! I recently had my check up, July 2011, & there are several small stones in both of my kidneys. I know the drill...water, water & more water!!! I am an excellent water drinker, however, I sweat a lot & I rarely have to go to the bathroom! Therefore, my stones do not get flushed out...
Avatar n tn Cancer treatment results are normally expressed in terms of cancer-free status or survival over periods of years. Five-year survival rates are a common measure. Clark claims she can tell that patients are cured as soon as their ortho-phospho-tyrosine test is negative -- within days or even a few hours after her treatment is begun. This claim is preposterous.
Avatar f tn I'm a 23 year old female and have been dealing with constant kidney stones for the past 2 1/2 years. In June of 2013, I took a trip to the ER due to excruciating side pain. A CT scan revealed a 6mm stone was beginning to drop into my ureter. They sent me home with pain meds and told me (nonchalantly) to go to a different hospital if it gets worse due to their hospital lacking an on-call Urologist.
624160 tn?1224086080 I am a 24 year old woman. Over the past several weeks I've had a bad kidney infection that will not go away. The doctor did a pap smear and took urine sample and I am scheduled for an ultra sound this thursday. Can anyone tell me what he may be checking me for? Kind of getting scared b/c antibiotics are not working at all. I am getting a little scared here. Thanks for any information.
Avatar f tn It is usually reserved for kidney stones, gunshots, cancer and normally it is given in the hospital. If your son has gotten hold of some 24mg hydromorphone he really needs to be careful. That amount could very well be fatal. I would call poison control and speak with them about it.
Avatar n tn I am a 22 year old female.I am having reoccurent UTI'S and now I have a Kidney infection. In fact I have had 10 UTI's in the past 12 months.

661200 tn?1225486613 -) I know I just bombarded you with a whole lot of information, and I hope you'll speak to your vet about how to balance treatment for the CHF and kidney failure as best you can. Comfort measures are the best that can be offered now, and you'll need to know exactly what those are. God bless you. The next weeks and/or months aren't going to be easy, so enjoy the time you have left.
Avatar f tn This is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with. My beloved Gypsy is dying of kidney failure. Gypsy is a Jack Russell Terrier and she turned 18...yes 18...on Christmas Day. It's just so hard to know when it is "time." I prayed and prayed that she would give us one final parting gift and die on her own in her sleep...but she is SUCH a fighter and refused to surrender to this thing.
1522652 tn?1291241954 I know that there is a link beginning with my chronic uti's as a child, to my severe pms as an adolecent into adulthood, and then on to my chronic kidney stones and infections as an adult, and then the loss of my kidney, as well as the problems I'm experiencing now. My question is what specific tests do I need to request to accurately check my thyroid, parathyroid, and my calcium levels? Also, are there any specific questions that I need to ask.
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.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn I thought that the urinalysis showed kidney stones, but the primary doctor said that I was just dehydrated. The ultrasound showed a small varicocele on one of my testicles. Varicoceles are similar to varicose veins in the leg. There has been a significant change in my diet in the last few months. I've been eating shrimp from time to time. I noticed that the shrimp contains calcium (60 mg, 6%), and I know that calcium interferes with thyroid hormone.

2361255 tn?1339611918 The management of kidney failure can be quite intensive early on, but maintenance involves administering the right foods and treats and keeping a close eye on his blood levels. There's so much information on here about managing kidney failure, I won't repeat it, but just search and scan - or ask questions and I or others will certainly attempt to answer them for you. As Max is so young.
Avatar m tn I had lythotripsy laser surgery 2 years ago due to several kidney stones, one of them being about 13mm.
Avatar n tn A copy of a your stone analysis (hopefully by x-ray diffraction) would be helpful as well as a two day log of your intake (food and fluid). The tendency to form kidney stones does run in families and thus could be transmitted to your daughters. Hope this helps. This information is provided for general medical information purposes only.

489228 tn?1291535054 There are some doctors who don't believe it works mainly because they don't believe you can have pain from stones in the kidney. Dr Wolf performed the surgery on me personally last Aug. He will perform it on those that he thinks medically qualify for needing it if you are willing to go to Michigan. Several others have had their doctors do the procedure within the last year as well. AFTER MUCH PERSONAL RESEARCH I WOULD HAVE TO RECOMMEND DR WOLF'S PROCEDURE OVER LITHO...
Avatar f tn I know I've flushed out kidney stones. I've figured out that the cause of my kidney stones is high fructose corn syrup in some of my favorite foods like fig bars which I've given up. I would not be surprised if that had something to do with my gall stones.

Avatar n tn I have seen a lot of information on various treatments for a broken tailbone, I would just like to set a few things straight for people. There is no treatment really, you just have to wait it out. Use a donut or other type cusion, you can alos use a phone book and just hang your tailbone off the back.
Avatar f tn I have not had a pain free day in the last two years and worse, kidney stones! I am already prone to them, but I can't get over the suspicion that Viread has ensured I have a stone that needs to be taken out each year. I've read that viread is one of the best treatment there is (hardly any side effects, probability of virus resistance low) so my latest blood test is worrying me no end. I am not due for another DNA test until 6 months later.
