A 44-year-old female asked:

Is it safe to have massage when you have a kidney stone?

Yes : Yes. I know of no validated data that shows that any type of body massage is either contraindicated, unsafe, or dislodges/promotes passage of a kidney stone into the ureter potentially causing pain and/or obstruction. The same answer (no restrictions) would basically apply to physical and sport activities as well. Kidney stones actually more common with a sedentary lifestyle.

Kidney stone ?: A kidney stone lodged in the ureter is very painful, but if one has a stone in the renal pelvis and not in the ureter, masturbation should not affect in that location.
