Iam having right renal calulai measuring 5mm in the lower pole. Can I able to flush out this stone by drinking 4 litres of water per day?

More importantly is where is the stone… If it is in the kidney, it may stay there forever without consequence. If it is in the ureter and it will not pass and continues to cause pain, a urologist will help you. Increasing fluids may help flush. ...Read more

What does it mean after passing kidney stones:" there is anterior rotation of the left renal access congenital? "

What does it mean after passing kidney stones:" there is anterior rotation of the left renal access congenital? "

Congenital anomaly: The fetal kidneys undergo a 90° rotation around their longitudinal axis during their ascent from the pelvis before they reach their final position by the end of the 8th week of fetal life. Abnormal rotation may partially obstruct the junction of the kidney & ureter, the tube that leads to the bladder, increasing the risk of having kidney stones & upper urinary tract infections. ...Read more

An X-ray showed a 6mm mid-left renal calculus stone in my 17 years old daughter. Is this in the kidney?

An X-ray showed a 6mm mid-left renal calculus stone in my 17 years old daughter. Is this in the kidney?

Yes.: The term renal indicates that the calculus is in the kidney. Mid refers to the midpole, or near the center of the kidney, as opposed to the upper or lower poles. If the stone were to pass into the ureter, it would be reported as a ureteral stone. A 6mm stone may pass on its own, but chances decrease above 5mm. If there are no symptoms it may not need treatment, but many options are available. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: Apparently, the condition of your right kidney has been chronic, most likely, inborn. From what you described, this kidney may be still salvageable by surgery – either open or laparoscopy with or without robotic assistance. I'm sure, before the procedure, a renal nuclear scan can be done to define the residual function of right kidney. For more detail, ask and talk with your doctor. Best wish. ...Read more

I am going in for a blockage on my right kidney I am stage 4 renal failure w/ coranary artery disease and am going in for a surgical procedure remove a 60% blockage on my right kidney and 2 large stones on my left how serious is this procedure

Very important: Most important is to understand that with stage 4 renal failure and coronary artery disease you are fairly likely to develop kidney failure in the future. The question is how long. Your job is to address factors in your control such as weight, blood sugar, blood pressure, medications, smoking. The procedure sounds like it is not "open", and will use balloons + lithotripsy.
