Kidney stone. : Mm or cm? A stone 5mm in size or smaller should pass, albeit with some degree of pain and with drinking lots of water. Bigger stones have a very good chance of getting stuck, which can lead to crazy pains and infections, too. At that size, it should pass, and when it does you need to catch it (urinate into coffee filter) and have it sent to lab for metabolic analysis. ...Read more

Docs, could 0.2mm kidney stone cause issues?

Docs, could 0.2mm kidney stone cause issues?

Yes, occasionally...: I assumed you meant a stone of <2 mm, not <0.2 mm. Largely, a stone <4 mm has an 80% of chance to pass spontaneously in 2 weeks with expected coping with pain, but it doesn't mean a stone of 2 mm will always pass; in fact, occasionally, a stone of 2 mm may still require intervention. So, it's said: despite medical advance, all care is still based on indirect evidence from past experience... ...Read more

I have a 2mm kidney stone found in my kidney Lasthey week. When can I expect it to start moving and will it be painful?

Cannot tell when: Cannot tell when it will move, but it is likely to be painful. You may help your cause by drinking enough water everyday so that your urine is mostly colorless. It will help the stone move and prevent formation of more stones.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Ureteroscopy : This treatment for many stones involves using a small scope to look into the ureter (kidney tube). The stone can be either removed or broken up with a laser.
After surgery there may or may not be a stent. This is a thin, soft plastic tube to keep the ureter from closing. Either way, you can expect some burning with peeing, urgency/frequency to peeing, mild pain in the side or blood in the urine. ...Read more
