Bruised Kidney Symptoms After Lithotripsy
Use Laser: Some types of stones do not fracture well with shockwave lithotripsy. If the stone needs to be treated then either ureteroscopy (scope from bladder up ureter) with laser can be used or a scope through the back directly into the kidney can be used. The latter procedure is for larger stones, usually over 2cm, and is called percutaneous nephrolithotomy (pcnl). ...Read more

Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure.

Kidney stone: Your chances of making another stone are greater then someone who has never had a stone but it is by no means assured.

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

Second lithotripsy done 2-14. Toilet water sometimes clear to a tint of various shades. Is this normal? Does litho do damage to kidney cells?
More likely. ...: .. that the pink-tinged water is evidence of microscopic bleeding from residual or recurrent kidney stones. It's been a year and a half since you had the lithotripsy. Any injury to the kidney is almost always acute, i.e. immediately after the procedure and transient. I suggest you see your nephrologist/urologist for follow-up tests to check on the status of your kidney stones and kidney functon. ...Read more

ESWL: Depends-if your stone is radiolucent (eg uric acid/cysteine) you could manage it medically and dissolve it. If radio-opaque/calcium in composition, while unlikely to "pass" intact, would be best managed with eswl as a minimally-invasive mono-therapy. (pcnl would be too invasive, except with significant anatomic variation (eg calyceal diverticulum/infundibular stenosis). Possible ureterorenoscopy? ...Read more
LITHOTRIPSY: This is a treatment to break up the stones. The stones have to pass afterward and that is when the pain comes if they're not small enough to go right through. ...Read more

Anatomic abnormalities (eg, ureteral stricture or horseshoe kidney) must be taken into account. ...Read more

2nd time kidney stones w/in 10mos. 1x: 3mm-stuck in l distal ureter & 6mm-l kidney. 2x: 5mm & 2mm-l kidney & 5mm-r kidney. Do I get lithotripsy again?
Possibly: Lithotripsy's results depend on the size and location of the stones along the urinary tract. However, equally importantly, you need to be investigated to figure out why you are having recurrent stones, and take appropriate measures like increased water intake (and, possibly other medications) that should reduce your risk of future stones. ...Read more
I had lithotripsy laser surgery about 2 weeks ago I still have stones in my kidney today I tried doing zumba &hurt is this bc of the surgery or stones?
Not typically: There is nothing inherent to this procedure which would lower a persons threshold for seizure. Individuals at risk for seizure should know that these procedures often require anesthesia and the use of those medications may change the effectiveness of anti-seizure medications. This can be discussed with the anesthesia team prior to scheduling a procedure. ...Read more

5 mm. Kidney stone that has been sitting at the top of the ureter for 9 days. Urologist recommends Lithotripsy. Reasonable or useless to tough it out?
Should pass without: Need for intervention. Also depends upon symptoms. You have had multiple stones in past & presumably passed most or all.
