Need further evaluat: Sorry for your fall and the very uncomfortable symptoms that you are having. With a history of stones, a kub x-ray and at least a renal bladder ultrasound would be important. A voiding diary will help quantify your frequency. Perhaps temporary relief from an anti-cholinergic and or bladder analgesic medication ( uribel) until your urologist reviews the diary and has other suggestions would be help.

Medication: First rule out a urinary tract infection or bladder inflammation. If no infection, treatment with a medication for overactive bladder may relieve your urgency. Pyridium (phenazopyridine) is sometimes given to relieve painful urination. An orthopedic surgeon should investigate your ongoing back and hip pain looking for hairline fracture, etc. And , if indicated, ordering bone scan, ct scan, mri, etc.

Possible causes: The back and hip pain may be related to the fall, and may have caused some inflammation and residual injury with pain. And the urethral pain and urgency (if your urologist doesn't think it is due to the stone-) can come from many things, like overactive bladder, or interstitial cystitis. You may need some physical therapy for the hip and back, and a follow up visit with urology.
