Need more info: What size and where was the stone?(how many mm diameter,in the upper,mid or lower ureter,at UVJ:ureterovesical junction?).What imaging test was done? how much pain? How long ago did you first present. Usually you need something stronger than tylenol (acetaminophen) if the stone is trying to pass.Are you on flomax? get me this info an I can answer you question better. Good luck.

A member asked:

What are the differences between ibuprofen and acetaminophen?

Length of effect: Both treat fever and pain. Ibuprofen lasts 6-8 hours while Acetaminophen lasts about 4 hours. Sometimes, one seems to work better than the other, either for certain symptoms or for certain children. (for instance, i find Ibuprofen more helpful for sore throats, usually.) pick the one that helps the most for your child, for their symptoms. (the "alternating" idea isn't recommended.).

No: Once you have had kidney stones it does raise your risk but that does not mean that you you will get them again. Drinking plenty of water and staying hydrated can help prevent kidney stones.
A member asked:

What should I do if my babys had a fever for five days, and tylenol (acetaminophen) isnt making it better?

Call your doctor: When your baby has had fever for more than 3-5 days that does not seem to be resolving, they need to be examined to determine if the cause is serious and what treatment is required. Don't forget that a baby can be sick without a fever, and as a parent, you know your child best. Fever is just a symptom, and by itself is not harmful and is part of the bodies natural immune response to illness.

Possible, Not Top 4: Top 4 complications from gonorrhea [gc]: sterility, infectious arthritis, diseased heart valves, meningitis. Gc can spread into your blood and cause septic shock, which can lead to kidney failure & other systemwide problems. Thankfully this doesn't happen often. Also, remember if you get gc, you can get other std's like hiv. Be safe and smart. Use condoms. No love without the glove.
