Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones treatment pregnant

kidney-stones

Avatar f tn I have two kidney stones in one kidney and two stones in the other. They are two big to pass (6 and 7 mm) so the doctor is putting me on a medication for the next three months in the hopes of dissolving them. He did say they are non-dissolvable, so I am confused. I have blood in my urine, which triggered the ultrasounds of my kidneys and bladder. I don't understand why he didn't give me the option of a lithotrypsy. I am trying to get pregnant, so I don't know if that was a reason.
Avatar f tn I don't know if this is related, but I also am missing my period, I haven't had one in about 50 days, since before the stones. I know for a fact I am not pregnant, and I have never, ever been this late before. It makes sense that my period may be late from the stress my body went through with the stones last month, but with my last period being December 4th, should I be alarmed that it is THIS late?! I've read online that it could be a symptom of kidney disease.
Avatar m tn Hello, Since the kindey stone is 7 mm, so the symptoms seem unrelated to the kidney stones. Since you are having pedal or leg edema, hence your cardiac, liver and kidney functions need to be assessed for which I suggest you to consult a physician immediately. Abdominal causes like irritable bowel syndrome can also cause such symptoms. Common symptoms include abdominal cramping or pain, bloating and gassiness, and altered bowel habits(alternate constipation and loose stools).
Avatar f tn I am currently 5 months pregnant and was recently hospitalized for treatment of kidney stones. Well my stone(s) have yet to pass and it's been about a week. I went for an update with my urologist on today and he has signed me up for a procedure where he will input a stent into my ureter. I have 4 more months to go in the pregnancy and at this point I am really freaked out! I've read and heard negative things about the stent. Did these work for anyone without causing more pain and problems?
Avatar n tn I've had cysteine kidney stones since I was 16, am now 23. I am also 9 weeks pregnant and I know while pregnant they can't do surgery. But, I have like 5-6 stones in my left side and my right side has some obstruction here lately I've been having a lot of pain, had worse, but still hurts. What options do I have to get rid of the pain while being pregnant? If anybody can help, please do.

342647 tn?1291111533 I suffer from kidney stones... they suck, but I have a high pain tolerance and opt not to take anything. Yes, they hurt... but if you think about how the pain won't last forever, it helps. And, the stones would have to be pretty large for them to cause kidney damage. Just so you know, most of the time kidney stones resolve themselves. They will break down in the kidneys and most of the time you won't even know you are passing them.
Avatar f tn It took a few hours but finally (after a CT scan) they figured out that i've got 2 kidney stones. One was still in my kidney and the other blocked my kidney from releasing into the bladder I was told...which I guess is where all the pain was coming from. They gave me dilaudid for pretty much the entire first day and then the pain went away on my right side so they stopped giving it to me. I left the next afternoon but was horribly cranky that entire night.
Avatar n tn Hi, What treatment was done previously? Most kidney stones pass out of the body without any intervention. However, when stones are big and cause lasting symptoms or other complications, management is different. This will require medical treatment or possible surgery. Talk to her doctor about her pregnancy and have her evaluated further for proper management. I also recommend that she rest and drink plenty of fluids. Take care and keep us posted.
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 f tn Has anyone had kidney stones while pregnant? I'm freaking out. Idk if they have any effect on my baby and what treatment will have to be done!!
Avatar f tn MY husband took me to the ER, and it turned out I had a deformed kidney that was blocked, full of stones, and I had a stone trapped in my urethra. A kidney specialist actually told my it was the "funkiest" kidney he had ever seen. They put a stint in me for 3 months, and then they blasted the stones with a laser. My left kidney is now about 30% functional. (My right is normal.) I'm now 4 months pregnant, and having pain on my left side.
Avatar n tn When a kidney is not in its position, there are possible complications such as infection, stones, kidney failure, and increased risk of injury from blunt trauma. If your urinary function is normal and the doctor finds no blockage, no treatment for ectopic kidney is needed. However, regular follow-up for monitoring is recommended in case a change occurs. If you are feeling kidney symptoms, have this checked for further evaluation and management. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn Kidney ultrasound scan. When you have got all these results,we can evaluate and decide if a kidney biopsy and treatment will be needed. It's shocking how many people have kidney diseases/ glomerulonephritis without knowing until their kidney functions start decreasing. In the country where I came from originally - china, routine urinalysis is checked among all ages every year.
Avatar f tn Also, I do not believe I have Kidney stones as the flank pain is the only pain I have. My kingdom for anyone who can figure out what 2 ER's could not.
Avatar f tn I am a 27 year old pregnant female with a history of kidney stones since the age of 16. I normally get a kidney stone every 3 - 4 months but now that I am pregnant it has gotten to the point where I am getting them every week. This past weekend I rushed to the ER because I thought I was in labor. Instead of being in labor I found out that I had passed yet another stone this time it was an 8mm stone with no pain medication except 2 tylenol that my husband gave me before we went to the hospital.
Avatar n tn and what is a usual size the should pass by itself? my father was diagnosed with kidney stones of a size of 4 mm is this called big?
Avatar f tn Not a big deal, lot of preggo ladies have it at the beginning. Just make sure you get it treated now before it turn into a kidney infection. And drink pently of water. Cranberry juice help too.
Avatar n tn i am seven weeks pregnant and also have kidney stones in my right kidney and i was wondwring if this would pose any threats to my pregnancy. i was told to avoid calcium but being pregnant you are supposed to increase calcium maybe you can ease my mind till i see my dr. which isnt till dec. 4 Dear Brandy: Kidney stones are more common in men than women. When they occur in women, most have no explanation for their occurrence.
757137 tn?1347200053 Magnesium will get rid of kidney stones, and cranberry juice will prevent them.
Avatar f tn I am 24, a mother of one, pregnant with number 2, and I currently have 7 stones in my left kidney, and 5 in my right (and it could be more, those were just the ones they could see with an ultrasound, because I obviously cant have a CT or anything better) I also have had chronic pain since 2004 when I had my first stone.
Avatar f tn As you are complaining of discomfort in the kidney area for a couple of months and have to urinate more often and feel that you haven't emptied your bladder, could be a sign of a Urinary Tract Infection. If you have kidney stones moving - they can take months to come down if they are moving; you would experience pain in the kidney area, or have renal colic (like wind pains in the belly). As they come down they can scratch and aggravate the tubes and hence cause infections.
Avatar n tn Kidney stones are hereditary for sure. It's unfortunate but that's what I've been told by all my doctors. And in my family, all have had them but interesting to note -- different types!
481119 tn?1208276891 My uncle is having cortical cyst in his right kidney measuring 10.7x11.6mm. Please inform me about the treatment and measures to be taken.
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 n tn Hello, My daughter-in-law has a large kidney stone in one kidney and she is 30 weeks pregnant. Currently the Dr. is treating her with a nephrostomy tube. The tube has had to be replaced 2 times I wondered if there is a different treatment for this large stone (approximately the size of a dime) and if they can use an epidural for placement of the nephrosomy tube?
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 f tn I am about five months pregnant and have had one bladder infection that was treated wih antibiotics. Now I have calcium crystals in my urine. Does this mean kidney stones? And if so, how is this treated during pregnancy?
Avatar f tn Hi, Kidney infections are caused by bacterial organisms and can occur repetitively in cases where there are kidney stones, some obstruction to outflow of urine, frequent urinary tract infections, etc. As the problem is on only one side and is recurrent at that side only, the possibility of a kidney stone is high especially as a stent was required for effective treatment when you had your last infection.
