Have pain right side under my ribs, radiates to the back. Comes and goes. Interupts my day life. Trace blood in urine. Hist stones dr say muscles skel?

Possible renal stone: Intermittent pain in the side, radiating to the back, and associated with blood in the urine, can be due to a urinary tract stone. This can be very uncomfortable. There are certainly other possible causes, but an x-ray to look for a stone would be worthwhile. A CT scan without contrast is the best way to find a small stone. ...Read more

It is not a good thing and should be evaluated. I cannot link this to the removal of the G tube. (unrelated, not causative) ...Read more

Quadratus lumborum?: Assuming that your MRI was a normal lumbar mri, that you do not have a rash over the area (shingles), and that workup for a kidney stone was negative, then I would consider the possibility of quadratus lumborum pain. It starts deep in the flank between the hip and ribs, and can radiate to the back or groin. Consider seeing a physiatrist or pain physician to verify. ...Read more

Blood in urine I am a 48 yr old male and this just happened this morning.

Blood in urine I am a 48 yr old male and this just happened this morning.

Blood: Blood that is visible in the urine (rather than just under the microscope) almost always warrants a thorough evaluation, especially if it is painless. Unless it is associated with an obvious cause, such as a catheter placement, or symptomatic bladder infection you should be seen by a urologist. This is one of the most common things that we see in our clinic. The evaluation will look for benign things such as kidney stones, bladder stones, or an enlarged prostate, as well as worrisome things such as kidney or bladder cancers - all of which can present with visible blood in the urine. Often a cause is not found, but the primary goal of the evaluation is to rule out worrisome things. ...Read more
