Is ureteroscopy a painful thing to go through. I have a 2mm kidney stone. Its in my left kidney. Its moved a lot its lower down my back.
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

Kidney stone.: Kidney stones up to 5mm in size will predictably pass on their own. Just drink plenty of water so you produce a lot of urine, dilate those ureters and allow the stone to pass. It may hurt while it's on its way out, but it'll pass. Bigger stones will likely get stuck and will cause tremendous pain and will have to be removed by lithotripsy or cystoscopy. ...Read more

Plenty fluids and ..: Drink plenty of fluids , about 2 to 3 liters per day so you produce a lot of urine. You also can benefit from limiting your protein in the diet (meats and animal products).

Stone analysis can lead to more specific treatment for the type of stone you are prone to making. ...Read more

Been having pains in my left kidney over a week. Saw a dr. and was told it was a kidney stone. Have been hydrating the stone has still not passed. ?
Kidney stone pain: Most small kidney stones pass spontaneously, those larger than 5 - 6mm may not. Pain is related to obstruction. Such stones best managed by urologist.

LITHOTRIPSY: Lithotripsy simply fractures the stones after which they need to pass. It can take more than 1 treatment for this much stone. The pieces can also stack up in the ureter and cause pain. The skin often bruises with treatment and the tissue of the kidney can also bruise. Many reasons for pain after litho. ...Read more

I have a 1.5 cm stone at the bottom of the left kidney. Will it pass down through the tube?How far will it get before it gets stuck?
A stone that size:
is unlikely to enter the ureter ..stones of less than a mm
(1.5 cm=15 mm!!!!!!!!) are usually passed.....
The chances are your stone is "stuck" in the tubular tissue of the kidney.
Hope this is helpful

Hi, I have an 8mm kidney stone in my left kidney that has recently started giving me discomfort. Which procedure is best? SWL or Ureteroscopy?
Here are some...: Nowadays, transureteroscopic laser stone-breaking with/without post-procedural stent is what I prefer, but the practice in managing symptomatic renal stone has evolved & changed and professional proficiency may sway how kidney stone could be handled. So, ask your urologist although through ureteroscopy is what I prefer. More? Contact me and I can help you. ...Read more
Can a dr break a kidney stone thats stuck in the tissue lose by hitting on your back? My left kidney hurts really bad after she hit it I have a stone
Unlikely: it's highly unlikely that the doctor was able to "break a stone loose" by hitting your back. your doctor was probably checking for tenderness there, and the pain your feeling is from the same process that brought you to see her in the first place (stone, infection, etc). we have very expensive machines to break up kidney stones, if your doctor could do it with her hand we wouldn't need them. ...Read more
