Passing kidney stones in males

Common Questions and Answers about Passing kidney stones in males


Avatar m tn The only places you should feel any pain at all from the kidney stones, is in the ureters, if you're female. (the ureters are the tubes that carry your urine from the kidneys to the bladder). In Females, once the stone(s) reach the bladder, it should be no pain at all, and it doesn't take long at all for the stones to pass when you urinate, the stones will be carried out of the bladder, through the urethra.
Avatar f tn Aside from infection or stone, hematuria or blood in the urine may be attributed to enlarged prostate in males, kidney disease such as glomerulonephritis, possible cancer, inherited disorders such as sickle cell anemia, kidney injury, medication side effect or even from strenuous exercise. Further evaluation or diagnostic tests may need to be done to determine the underlying cause. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn I am not sure if I should keep waiting around in hopes of passing this stone taking into consideration that stones of this size are rarely passed, especially in males. I have heard reports of medical costs ranging anywhere from 1,000-10,000 dollars (U.S. Currency), for ranging removal practices. I can not afford these prices. Any advice or comments are welcome, just hoping to hear from someone with similar circumstances for possible insight.
Avatar m tn Be careful with the vitamin c suppliments. They can cause kidney stones in males. You do not want this.
Avatar n tn It really takes the fun out of sex knowing that I might ejac blood and urinate clots. First I thought I was passing stones or something but now I just don't know and I'm a little scared. Please come back to this forum if anyone with this problem has answers.
Avatar n tn Im 15-20 pounds over weight had hernia surgery at 2 and 12 and have had a few run ins with kidney stones so I had no idea where to begin with what might bew the cause. I feel it standing or sitting when it starts and the last few days it has been pretty constant. Wish there was a clear cut reason or two to ease my mind.
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar n tn It can be due to urinary tract infection,STD’s(sexually transmitted disease),prostates and kidney stones. Although yeast infections are common in females but males can also have it .
Avatar n tn I don't have any symptoms yet, except for my period being early once in a while. I am 44 years old, and have gone, in 2 weeks, from having 44 year old skin to skin of a 60 year old. Could someone please help? I'm very distressed.
12980073 tn?1429819661 The extra fluids given during the anaesthetic is proper protocol in unwell dogs w/kidney issues, but NOT used in young, healthy dogs!! So, why did they do this if the bloodwork was fine???? The specific blood test for the spay surgery is designed for Kidney & Liver function before a surgery, but it was stated that that bloodwork was good at this point.....Yet, fluids were given during the spay!! Why????
1408746 tn?1283678948 [1][2] The name derives from the fact that, in the sagittal view, the SMA and AA (with some imagination) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein). I was originally Diagnosed with Pelvic Congestion after complaining for many years of Chronic pelvic pain, left sided flank pain, lower back, and lower limbs. My husband and I were also trying to conceive for 6 years and all the doctors could tell me was that I had a great looking uterus.
Avatar f tn I believe I've read that some get a kind of de-nervation with dysautonomia. Have they checked you for usual culprits of neuropathy? No diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), MGUS or multiple myeloma for example? Was the mass cancerous? I'm sorry your husband was not willing to stand by you in sickness and not just in health. The blood pressure and pulse in the heat & passing out sound like they could be dysautonomia, unless you were dehydrated at the time?
Avatar n tn In early August I had an abdominal ultrasound, everything was ok but I have another kidney stone in my left kidney. Now later this week I go for a chest CT scan, which will show heart, lungs, blood vessels, lymph nodes, spleen, pancreas and liver. I have a feeling now it has more with my colon, as I am getting this feeling on the right side too (but not as bad), and sometimes burning pain sensations as well, also back pains. If the CT scan comes back normal, I'm going to tell my dr.
Avatar m tn Then i went back to doctor and found blood in my urine (not visible) so this may indicate something going on with my kidney. Might be kidney stones. I am no longer have terrible anxiety over herpes as I am hoping that I have a kidney issue couple with some sort of irritation or non-major issue (molloscum or follucilitis or whatever) although I am not entirely convinced i did not contract herpes.
Avatar n tn I collapsed with severe pain in middle of right side 2 and half years ago, and initially was diagnosed with kidney stones, but urologist did not think stones were big enough to cause pain I was in. (They were smaller than grain of rice.) I am now awaiting endoscopy with gastroentorologist to see if I may have adhesions. My scar is definately pulling upwards towards my right ribs and I am rather unhappy that I have had to suffer for this long to get any answers!
Avatar n tn seriously, many of you sound like you're passing kidney stones. if you have blood in your urine but no signs of infection (negative for bacteria, no fever, etc) but you have abdominal or back pain and even nausea or vomiting, you probably have kidney stones. i'm 28, having my first, and it's no picnic. i was lucky and my dr. ordered a CT scan, which definitely showed a kidney stone. but some tests for some people will not show a stone (especially x-rays and ultrasounds).
Avatar n tn Over the past few years, I've also seen a correlation between gas in the bowel and from the vagina. I'm going in for a colonoscopy in 2 months, but it seems like ages, as this is very embarrassing in the corporate environment. It happens that when I'm sitting down, the gas collects in the uterus, and then when I stand up, the gas is expeled from the vagina. It is very disheartening that my gyn stated that if it's not due to a fistula, there may not really be a solution to the problem.
181575 tn?1250202386 Combination therapy (CT) using telbivudine plus lamivudine and monotherapy (MT) using telbivudine alone in a 2005 comparison of 104 patients did not show a difference in effectiveness. 5. Combination therapy (CT) using lamivudind plus adefovir and monotherapy (MT) using lamivudine alone in a 2003 comparison showed CT superiority: by week 52, CT group remained virally suppressed, HBV DNA levels increased in the MT group. 6.
Avatar f tn My family doctor thought that perhaps I had a kidney stone. But nothing showed up in cat scan. The same thing happened in Oct. I saw my gyn today and she said that she had been hearing about post ablation syndrome but that they had never had a patient exhibit this before so lucky me I am the first. She just flat out said to me that she believes the ablation failed. I have to go Thursday to have an ultrasound done.
429155 tn?1205676864 MY PERSONAL DIARY OF OXYCONTIN WITHDRAWAL. May I briefly fill in a little background.I am David aged 55 and employed as a postman/driver/sorter, well up until 38 months ago I had never been into hospital,well boy was that about to change.
Avatar n tn For me the retrograde ejectulation would be far more desired over the curent problem of a neurogenic bladder. In the US and Canada a lot of males get circumcised at birth withou their approval. Should they be pissed off with their parents and doctor who did the butchering. Males without a foreskin don't seem to complain about the situation as they have no idea as to what it is like to be circumcised.
Avatar n tn middle aged that is.. it could be kidney stones.. we are all in the same boat.. and our anatomy all works the same way.. so for now relax, masterbate, ****, and enjoy the freedom of taking stress of the daily human life off your mind. (it is proven psychologically that masterbation is good for the mind, and prevents anger, stress, tight muscle strains anywhere in the body, and helps you sleep) one more note to ramble on about. some people can masterbate more frequently then others.
Avatar n tn I have, had pain in my vagina and my anus too! but i just take 2 modrin and go to sleep because i can't deal with the pain. Hope we both can come up with a answer for this painful painful problem.
Avatar n tn WOW! I came to this blog in hopes of finding some answers or direction, and really feel that I have. I have been suffereing from the dizzy (light-headedness) spells, diahrea, cold sweats, weakness, shakes, etc. It's scarey. I have felt like I was going to die. I have not been able to get a difinitive diagnosis from any MD, and am not in CHICAGO, seeking specialists for all my multi-symptoms. I have been told I have Lupus (SLE), and am being treated for the pain of FIbromyalgia as well.
Avatar n tn I have studied the entire human body (in my profession), and have close friendships with several internists. However, I have no health insurance. Based on what I've studied and have been told, the most likely culprits are gastroparesis (very slow emptying of the stomach) OR gall bladder disease. It is true that when your stomach retains its food load an excessively long time, the contents can somewhat "ferment." I also have been told that bile typically tastes sulfuric.
Avatar n tn i'm a male in my early 20's with severe testicular pain on my right side following lower right abdominal pain. i went to the ER and they found blood in my urine but no sign of kidney stones. There was no hernia either. I am clean of all STD's and was put on anibiotics weeks ago by my doctor to treat epidymitis (totally spelled it wrong) but i still have no idea whats wrong. the pain continues and it seems to be unbarable even after using pain killers like vicadin! Anyone have any ideas?!?
