Is it safe to fly with a 1 cm kidney stone?

Kidney stone

Diabetic_kidney_problems
Yes, as long as you are not the pilot. A 1cm stone, if mobile, can cause colic and obstruction if it gets in the beginning portion of the ureter. Statistically very unlikely to successfully pass such a large stone into the bladder.

What is the best treatment for a 1 cm kidney stone? This is my first stone.

Fluids

Kidney_stone
24 hour urine collection for a snap shot of what goes on inside the kidney and then therapy can be tailored. Untill then drink enough water to make about 2.5 liters of urine or untill urine is white in color

Can a kidney stone be 7 cm?

Can happen-unlikely

Kidney_stone
Unlikely in developed countries but it is a diagnosis that is made in some developing nations where the kidney pelvis is filled with a stag horn type calculus.

2 cm kidney stone. what do i do?

See a urologist

Kidney
Stone is too big to pass sponaneousy & too large for shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL). Urologic stone expert will likely advise percutaneos nephro-lithopaxyy (PCNL). This involves temporary placement of a percutaneous neprostomy tube,through which a nephroscope is passed & stone is proken up by laser or tithoclst. Performed under general anesthesia or sedation. Open surgery should be avoided.

What can i do for 2x1 cm kidney stone?

Probable PNL

Kidney
2x1 cm stone is quite large and best managed by percuteous nephro-lithotripsy. This will involve having a tube placed in the kidney by urologist or interventional radiologist. Then nephroscope is passed thru tube and kidney is broken up by laser or lithoclst. Your stone is certainly to big for ureteroscopic lithotripsy and larger than recommendations for shockwave lithotripsy (most non-invasive)

What is the best thing to do if i have a 0.7 cm kidney stone? An operation or lithotripsy?

ESWL

Kidney
Depends-if your stone is radiolucent (eg uric acid/cysteine) you could manage it medically and dissolve it. If radio-opaque/calcium in composition, while unlikely to "pass" intact, would be best managed with ESWL as a minimally-invasive mono-therapy. (PCNL would be too invasive, except with significant anatomic variation (eg calyceal diverticulum/infundibular stenosis). Possible ureterorenoscopy?

I have a 0.7 cm non-obstructing kidney stone at the right side of my kidney. can it be carried through water therapy? its been almost a month.

Probably not..., but

Open-uri20140411-28726-1pavy34
The described 0.7-cm size is large than what professionally advised to wait and see. Generally speaking, some 85 % of stones of <0.4 cm would pass through ureter in 2 wks; but it doesn't mean the <0.4-cm ones would always pass and the >0.4-cm ones would never pass. Yet, if stone-related pain is tolerable and the dilation of ureter.kidney is not severe, few >0.4 cm stones may pass in 1-4 months.

Treatment for non obstructing 2.25 cm kidney stone in upper pole of right kidney ? Could the stone be causing abdominal & upper leg pain? Headache?

Probably not

Kidney
A non-obstructing stone may cause blood in the urine but should not be causing pain especially headache or thigh pain. Theoretically a large kidney stone that is not obstructing might cause some pain. Generally that would be back pain or flank pain rather than abdominal pain. I recommend you discuss with your physician the radiology report generated by the radiologist.

What causes a kidney stone and how can you prevent one?

Kidney stone

Open-uri20130830-29665-9y0bn1
The causes are dehydration, familial, gouty nephropathy, Inflammatory bowel disease, oral intake of calcium containing food or vitamin& parathyroid disease. This is accumulation of calcium,phosphate, urate, cysteine & oxalate minerals not excreted by kidney. Drink lot of water and treat the causes mentioned above. Thanks
