Common Questions and Answers about Kidney stones what to do


Avatar m tn im a 26 year old male 5'11 185 lbs lean with a pudgy belly...recently i have been getting pains in my left lower back and it travels to my groin this time on the right side and feels now like a dull ache in my right testicle. no fever or nausea with these conditions but a "warm" sensation when urinating, stream is weak and color is mildy yellow. Could this be a kidney stone stuck in my bladder or is there another cause.

Avatar f tn what can i do to ensure this doesnt happen again? how can i avoid these stones and how do i know what type of stones i have. what diet should i be on, foods and drinks to have and to avoid. excercise and lifestyle ect.
Avatar m tn I know it is difficult to do, but try to drink a whole lot of fluid and wait quite awhile before going to the bathroom. Use force when you do go to the bathroom. If you let your bladder get full and then push when you go, you have a better chance of getting the stone to leave your bladder and get into the urethra. Once it is in the urethra, it comes out pretty easily. Hope you are able to pass it quickly.

Avatar f tn When I got the kidney stones, they can test them or analyze them to see what type they are and what causes them. I believe there are 3 types of stones. My stones are caused from too much calcium in my diet so I am suppose to watch that! They say once you get kidney stones you are prone to them. I know in my family history my dad had kidney stones, then me, my two brothers and my sister ended up getting them. Then my niece and nephew had a bout with them also..
Avatar f tn Hi, How is your husband? What other symptoms are present?If a stone that is blocking urine flow is left untreated it can cause damage to the kidney or ureter. If the stone is relatively small (5 mm or less) pain medications and increased oral fluid intake may allow the stone to pass on its own.
Avatar f tn Anyone else have kidney stones..? If so what do you do about it. It is SO painful..
500419 tn?1220128343 Hey I was wondering Im 10 wks Pregnant and I have lower back pain REALLY BAD it feels as if i was in labor being i know how it feels i have 3 kids already What happends is all of a sudden i will have sharp stabbing pain and it will last about a min and if i have to pee it is very little or i can't. The doctor said that is what it sounds like to her but i dont have the money to have all these other test done on top of going to my obgyn.
Avatar n tn He should analyze the stone to see what it's made of, and do a 24 hour urine collection to see what components of your urine could contribute to stone formation. Depending on the results, you may need diet modification, medication to prevent stones, of just need to drink a lot more water.
Avatar n tn I have a history of kidney stones dating back to 1981(approximately 8 visits to the hospital). However, on my urinalysis somethings are very disturbing to me. Listed is Leuk Esterase, POC *trace. It also shows Squamous, Epith,POC (normal range 0-3,3-5) my range is listed as 3-5. The report also states there is a 5mm stone to the proximal right ureter with some mild to moderate hydronephrosis. Could you tell me what the Leuk Esterase, Squamous Epith and hydronephosis are.
Avatar m tn I do know that I had a procedure to break up a large stone that I had and my urologist instructed me to drink lemonade. He told me that it would keep the stone fragments from bonding to each other and forming into another stone or reattaching to anything left of the original stone. I would guess that it would have some effect and certainly couldn't hurt. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with a kidney stone 3mm big. Is there any advise as to how I can flush out the stone?

Avatar n tn Hello, This pain can be related to the kidney stones. Kidney stones are of four types: calcium oxalate stones, struvite stones, uric acid stones or cystine stones. Potassium citrate is used for the treatment of stones. I would suggest you to get an evaluation done from a urologist to determine the type of stone. Treatment modes include Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithrotripsy (ESWL), uteroscopic stone removal and percutaneoud nephrolithotomy. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn I was released and thy have a drain tube on my kidney. I am to return in one week. What procedures might they be considering to remove the stone.
Avatar f tn I am at my wits end and have no idea what else to do. I had my first kidney stones when i was 19. They first put a stent inside to help with the passing but later found out that they weren't going anywheres caue they were sitting in a pocket in my kidneys. they did Lipo and they i was sent on my way. Well for the past 12 years i had more stones returned and nothing really done expect given meds to help the pain.(which most times didn't help).
Avatar f tn I have a male friend who's been dealin w/ kidney stones for about a year quite now. He's on medi-cal in CA & he's not gettin anywhere w/ doctor's. He's been waitin for 1 mo. now for a referral to see a specialist & in the mean time his symptoms seems to be gettin more serious. He's continuin to lose weight, fevers, chills, dizziness, severe pain, there's a smell when he urinates at times, cloudy urine (reddish), stones are not passin as he feels the stones in his penis.
Avatar m tn When your cat scan was done, was it read by a radiologist and then given to your Urologist or ER doctor? It should have been as that is the normal procedure. Your Urologist or ER doc should have told you what you should be doing, etc. In case someone missed a beat and you weren't told anything, a 3mm stone can cause you a lot of pain, as most stones can, but can usually pass on its own without the definite need for surgery to remove it.
Avatar n tn i have a low grade fever after just having kidney stone surgery what should i take
Avatar f tn I guess my question is who ever has been through this, what are your recommendations to ease this process, because I'm am starting to feel very discouraged and depressed having to rely on people to even get off the couch.
Avatar m tn If you went to the ER, how many stones did they tell you that they saw in the cat scan that you had TOTAL?. I notice that you said they found 3 X 3 stones (plural), indicating more than one 3 X 3 stone. Am I correct in assuming that from what you wrote? If you had more than one stone, then yes, it's very possible that you could continue to have pain and discomfort until all the stones you have completely pass.
540521 tn?1221703306 The stones seem to bother me the most when i am standing and being active, Can kidney stones lead to kidney Failure? How much worse can this get? I don't know what else to do , I am at a loss, any help would be Greatly Appreciated. Thank You..
Avatar f tn I have had kidney pain from infection in the past and while different I think this pain may be kidney related too. I am trying to find some way to get comfortable enough to sleep since it is the middle of the night and I don't want to wake two sleeping babies and drag them to the ER. I tried calling the nurse helpline provided by my insurance company, but he just told me to try a heating pad and some Tylenol.
Avatar f tn Usually, your doctor will give you a strainer and have you strain all your urine. YOu then save the stones and they can be tested to determine what type of stones they are (for example if they are related to diet or not). IF you have not done this yet, you may want to ask your doctor about it. The allergy I am not as sure about. By allergy do you mean you can't tolerate milk and egg products (they disagree with you, cause you abdominal pain,etc) or do you develop a rash/hives/swelling.
