Hematuria and 4 small kidney stones     still having a lot of pain even though stones are not blocjin anything    had CT scan to confirm this    tips?

Pain should resolve: Your pain should resolve if you increase your fluid intake and continue with pain meds as prescribed. You could have had a small stone that passed before the ct scan was done. At 26 yrs old, you should not already have 4 kidney stones. I recommend visiting a urologist for a possible metabolic evaluation to reduce or delay future stone episodes. ...Read more

Recent CT scan: non-obstr kidney stone, diverticulitis, thickening of bladder.  Have to wait 2wks for followup, despite blood in urine/pain. Is ths ok?

IF this is: Diverticulitis with secondary inflammation of your bladder or possible fistula to your bladder from the diverticulitis, you need to be on 2 weeks of antibiotics and a no fiber diet and you need follow up with a colorectal surgeon 2 weeks into the process. The diet above is critical if this has a chance to resolve without surgery. ...Read more

Blood in urine reoccuing UTI CT scan 3mm kidney stone bladder ultra sound scan shows bladder not emptying proper what could this be?

Cystitis.: Gross hematuria probably as a result of cystitis caused by the bladder outlet narrowing or stenosis and not because of the kidney stone. By drinking more water like 8 cups a day you can pass the kidney stone. For the cystitis you need urine culture . Until the culture result comes back you can be put on an antibiotic such as cipro (ciprofloxacin) to stop the gross hematuria. ...Read more

Infection or tumor: The most likely reason is infection of the kidney...Your doctor will check the urine and prescribe antibiotics. A less likely reason is a tumor in the kidney or nearby. This may need a urologists help. It could still be a kidney stone that was not seen on the ct, which also needs a urologists help. ...Read more

See answer: Though symptoms and u/a may be suggestive, one cannot reliably make the diagnosis of a kidney stone without some type of an imaging study (kub, ultrasound, ct) with a non-contrast ct scan being the most accurate and reliable imaging study to determine the presence, location, and size approximation of a stone as well as to potentially rule out other causes of pain and hematuria. ...Read more

Ct Scan (Definition)

Ct scan uses data from a beam of xrays and reconstructs a cross sectional image of your body. It is a high dose of xrays and used only when the benefits outweigh the risk. Cancer risk is 1 in 500 in children. Also using iodinated contrast might cause transient renal failure in about 5% of patients. (contrast induced nepropathy) most do not explain this to the patient as ...Read more
