Can You See Kidney Stones On An Ivp
Does an ivp X-ray show kidney stones when they don't show up on a kub X-ray and can someone still have a stone if none is seen on a kub x-ray?
Seriously- renal stones are the result of postive and negatively charged particles in urine binding together and precipitating as solids- most frequently as calcium- oxalate. This happens most often when the urine is concentrated- ie when you are dehydrated. And trying to pass these stones from the kidney to the bladder is incredibly painful. ...Read more

I was told that I may have a 6.5 mm kidney stone in a kidney pole . What is that? Also Dr. recommended I see a Urologist . I'm not in pain , why go?
Thought I had a UTI about a week ago, but I think I actually passed a kidney stone. I feel great 2 days later. Do I still have to see the Dr? (19, F)
Not unless recurs: Symptoms of UTI include burning with urination, increased frequency & urgency, lower abdominal discomfort. Kidney stones can cause similar sx but more often with blood in urine & more severe pain that can be localized to unilateral mid/lower back or groin. If you are not having any ongoing sx and no fever, it is unnecessary to see MD now. But if persistently recurrent sx, see MD for evaluation. ...Read more
I was in so much pain from a kidney stone now the pain is gone but I didn't see a stone pass is the stone gone should I stop taking flomax (tamsulosin)?
Pain gone: The stone is likely passed if your pain is gone, you have likely passed the kidney stone. I would not stop a medication that has been given to you by your primary or urologist until you have discussed it with them unless you are having bad side effects to the medications. There is no significant harm in taking it for an additional night and discussing it with your doctor in the AM. Be well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Passed kidney stone about 3 weeks ago and still having mild discomfort in side. How long can this go on? or should I see a doctor?
Need a reevaluation: I'm concerned you may have an additional stone that hasn't passed yet as you shouldn't be continuing to have pain 3 weeks after passing a stone. You should see your physician for evaluation and a referral to a urologist if not already seeing one.
