I had my kidney stone removed by scope and stent removed 6 days after. Is it normal to still feel pain?

Just discharged w/Nephrostomy Tube. CT and scope both show mass/stone in L kidney, irregularly shaped, jagged edge and is 6.9mm. 2nd Sepsis treatment?

Antibiotics = sepsis: The antibiotics are used to treat sepsis or infections in the kidney; the nephrostomy tubes are used to relieve blockages, in this case probably caused by the masses or stones. The two problems may be related, but are treated separately; and u can get one (blockage) without the other (sepsis). TTYD and Urologist to see what shd be done. Good Luck, Thanks for your question. ...Read more

I had a kidney stone on christmas it was tested and it was bc of oxaltes I was put on special diet, is this serious? Is this hypoxaluria?

Many paths to CaOx: While your stones are made of calcium oxalate, the cause for why you make stones is best assessed by undergoing a 24 hour urine collection. This, paired with blood work, can help to show why you make stones. The answer could be elevated urinary oxalates....Or not. Other causes include low levels of citrate or magnesium in your diet (easily replaced), low urine output or high urinary calcium. ...Read more

Are they supposed to put you to sleep during a kidney stent? I hear yes but I only got a shot and was awake. It was torture.

Anesthesia varies: For placement of a ureteral stent, a variety of anesthetics can be used. If a kidney stone needs to be treated prior to stent placement then a general anesthetic is typically used. If a stent alone needs to be placed, sedation is often used. In your case, the stent may needed to have been placed emergently/urgently, necessitating less anesthesia. Talk to your urologist about this. ...Read more

Dr put me on Ciprofloxacin for kidney pain im scared to take it due to the side effects im a diabetic its alot of side effects. What can I take nstead?

Ciprofloxacin: The side-effect profile of cipro (ciprofloxacin) or the other fluorinated quinolones should not prevent you from taking it therapeutically. The benefits usually far outweigh the risks. Any medication will have an extensive list of possible side-effects attached, but that does not necessarily mean that they occur frequently. No idea what you can take alternatively since do not know what is causing the UTI. ...Read more

I get 2 to 3 kidney stones a months, what can I do? Urologist put me on uriocet k (sp) but still have the problems.

Hydrate: My guess is you are probably doing this, but 48-64 ounces of water daily is truly important in kidney stone prevention. Stay on the urocit. Make sure you've had your stones qualified - you need to know what type of stones you make so treatment can be guided. Uric acid stones are handled differently than calcium oxalate stones. Good luck. ...Read more
