Kidney Stone And Pelvis Pain
I have a tiny kidney stone. I am experiencing a sharp, moderate pain in the pelvis and pain with urination. Could the kidney stone be causing this?
Yes: Hello, You don't say what "tiny" measures, but a small kidney stone may have passed down the ureter and giving you pelvic pain and pain on urination if it is stuck at the uretero-vesical junction (ureter-bladder connection point).A plain Xray will help. Make sure you strain your urine and follow your doctor's advice. Hope this helps and get well soon. ...Read more

Calcified granulomas within my spleen, bilateral renal cysts, 4mm kidney stone and punctate calcifications in my pelvis, what would the underlying condition be?
Mostly normal: These are all trivial imaging findings. The old stuff in your spleen probably reflects a long-ago victory over an infection with histoplasmosis. Kidney cysts are trivial and very common. The calcium stuff in your pelvis is probably phleboliths which never cause trouble. I hope the kidney stone stays in place or can be managed. ...Read more

Have a spot in low left pelvic area on xray. Need for concern or normal? X ray was for kidney stones but see this spot elsewhere. Not a kidney stone
Need more info...: Without a direct scrutinizing look at the films, it is hard to tell for sure what this spot may be, but radiographically phlebolith or calcification on the venous valve of pelvic veins is most commonly confused as incidental finding with no clinical significance as long as being asymptomatic. If so, leave it alone with no need for care al all. More? Ask your doc or contact me, and I can help. ...Read more

I had a pelvic ultrasound today and the tech found a kidney stone, thickened uterine lining & possible polycystic ovaries. What will be the next step?
Back to dr: The doctor who ordered the scan will need to see you and consider referral for sampling of your endometrial (womb) lining and consideration of hormone panels to look into the question of poly cystic ovaries. May also need kidney function test and urinalysis to look into the stone but only if it is in the ureter. See your doctor for further assessment ...Read more
UTI symptoms, pain in my right pelvic area. Ultrasound from GYN: kidney stone at junction of ureter and reflux in kidneys. Cant see Uro for 1 mo. Bad?
Bad to the "stone": The pain is the kidney stone getting stuck and unstuck like a ball valve at the narrow juncture of the ureter entry into the bladder. The infected urine is "backing up" into the kidney and requires continuous antibiotics until you can get to the Urologist who has ways to either retrieve surgically the stone through the bladder or breaking it up with lithotripsy- so no "romancing the stone". ...Read more

If severe pain / vomiting / can't pee -- go to er. ...Read more

Fluids and pain meds: You need to drink plenty of fluids and take medication for the pain.

If you are still having pain tomorrow, then you need to go to your emergency room for an evaluation or sooner if you are not able to urinate. ...Read more

Could a kidney stone have passed and redeposited itself in my vagina my husband said he feels something small like sharp glass during intercoursel?
It is very unlikely for the urinary stone to get into your vagina let alone sit there. You may wish to see your gynecologist for an examination to ascertain the cause of your husbands feeling.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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. ...Read more
I saw something weird come out near my clitoral area. It looked like a kidney stone but was soft & nowhere near urethra. I had a kidney stone 1yr ago.
May be just smegma..:
What described strongly suggests the presence of so-call smegma which is the "concrete" of solidifying the shed-ed skin keratin like that in the men with tight long foreskin. In females, its appearance is more prominent if the hood of clitoris is more pronounced. Just gently flush and clean it. And note: its unique smell is normally expected.

Not likely.: Kidney stones may indeed be present for months before passing and may produce intermittent pain which is usually felt in the flank when the stone is retained in the kidney or in the anterior abdomen when the stone is retained in the bladder. Stones in the ureter cause pain which radiates into the groin but stones don't hang out there forever. Search for another cause of your pain. ...Read more
Moderate: Basically anything that can get down the ureter into the bladder, can easily pass through the penis tubes (urethra). If your stones are in the kidney, they may be in the pelvis of the kidney and can be quite large. A piece of this could break off and cause the famous, painfull kidney stone passage through the ureters. You should be evaluated by a urologist for kidney stones before this happens. ...Read more
I have a 5mm kidney stone. I'd like to know when, during elimination, will it be the most painful? Ureteter, bladder or urethra? I'm a male.
Here are some...: If a 5-mm stone is inside kidney and not moving, you unlikely have pain. A stone of such size poses low odd for spontaneous passage, prior stone passage will help decide if worthwhile to act or wait. If act and it is visible with x-ray, shock wave may disintegrate it; if not visible or in ureter or still in kidney, holmium laser through urehtra and ureter is the choice, Remember nothing is free... ...Read more

Not unusual: Unusual sensations (pain, tingling, numbness) in head of penis, often accompanied by a feeling of urinary urgency or burning, are quite common as a stone is passing through the lower part of the urinary tract from the opening of the ureter into the bladder and out through the urethra related to irritation and inflammation. These sensations usually resolve within 24-48 hrs after stone passage. ...Read more

Had stent removed 4 days ago after kidney stone. Everything is great except a mild pinching sensation periodically in my penis. Is this normal?
Here are some...: What you've felt with stent in place is normal and lucky because of being bearable. In fact, some patients just can not tolerate stent-related symptoms. Besides, a properly selected length of stent to suit the ureter help ease stent-related symptoms. So, your urologist might have done good job for you. Best... ...Read more
