The biggest worry is not that "more holes are clogged", but that the outflow tube of the kidney, called the ureter is blocked, preventing urine to pass. The fragments of very large stones can block the ureter, a condition called 'steinstrasse' after shockwave lithotripsy, limiting its use in very large stones. ...Read more

Can a dr break a kidney stone that's stuck in the tissue lose by hitting on your back? My left kidney hurts really bad after she hit it I have a stone

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
