Is ureteroscopy a painful thing to go through. I have  a 2mm kidney stone. Its in my left kidney. Its moved a lot its lower down my back.

Ureteroscopy : This treatment for many stones involves using a small scope to look into the ureter (kidney tube). The stone can be either removed or broken up with a laser. After surgery there may or may not be a stent. This is a thin, soft plastic tube to keep the ureter from closing. Either way, you can expect some burning with peeing, urgency/frequency to peeing, mild pain in the side or blood in the urine. ...Read more

Here are some ...: The described tube is called stent to help ureteral healing and urine drainage, and usually kept in for 1-3 weeks for individual need for healing and safety. Its removal can be done easily and safely under local anesthesia with flexible cystoscope to pull it out. Most patients tolerates such procedures very well, and it's not worth to be done under sleep. Ask Doc for detail timely. ...Read more

I passed a kidney stone fri. I still have pain in the private area and an area in the low rght abdomen where it felt like the stone got stuck. This area has become swollen and painful, is this normal?

Could be: Kidney stones are certainly painful, and can cause inflammatory reactions and possible infections as they pass along the urogenital tract, thus causing discomfort and swelling, even after they pass. Plenty of fluids and meds if indicated by your treating dr. For the discomfort may help, but if the condition persists, you will need to see the doc for an exam. Best wishes. ...Read more

Severe vaginal burning , ll quad pain, not uti, std, yeast, products or sex. Painful/difficult urination.Long endo history/ hysterectomy. Kidney stone?

Atrophy?: Atrophic vaginitis or desquamative vaginitis can cause the vaginal symptoms, as can other infections besides yeast, like bacteria and viruses. The treatments are all very different, so you'd need a gyn specialist to sort it out. As far as the llq pain, it may or may not be related, but it could be caused by a stone, or an ovarian cyst. But a kidney stone wouldn't cause vaginal burning. ...Read more
