I have pain in area just below the ribcage on the left side that may be a Kidney stone that I had 2 months ago that I assume had passed back in early August. What is best treatment for stone and pain?

Here are some. ..: If the pain is indeed related with stone passing through left ureter, as suggested by clinical picture and confirmed with imaging study such as CT, the surest step to rid it is intervention through urethra, bladder, up to ureter & kidney. Nowadays, such procedures are very safe and tolerable. So, seek professional attention, evaluation, confirmation, Rx/care, etc. Timely. Best wish. ..

What type of treatment for kidney stone?

What type of treatment for kidney stone?

Three Main Kinds: The size of the stone, whether it is symptomatic, infected or located in the ureter help determine if treatment is needed, as well as what approach. Stones in the kidney >2.5 CM usually need surgery through a keyhole incision in the back (pcnl). Smaller stones (but >4 mm) in the kidney may need eswl (sound waves) or a direct look through the ureter (ureteroscopy) with laser break up. Ask your md.

Hoping you can tell me, is transplant ever an option for kidney stone treatment?

Hoping you can tell me, is transplant ever an option for kidney stone treatment?

Very, very rarely.: In patients with renal failure caused by some large kidney stone a transplant may be performed. During my fellowship, I saw a patient who had a large staghorn calculus (stone) in his solitary kidney that eventually led to renal failure. He eventually received a transplant.

Hi I am under treatment for kidney stone, can I take nutrilite daily suppliments?

Hi I am under treatment for kidney stone, can I take nutrilite daily suppliments?

Ask your doc. . .: Seriously, you need to ask your treating physician about what you want to take. Better yet, tell him/her everything you take, both prescription AND over-the-counter medications PLUS dietary supplements. Of note, Nutrilite is a brand, not a specific product, so it's impossible to give you more precise info. Worse, there's no product/ingredient list on their website, so no one can tell much about it

My child has 7mm kidney stone on right kidney. What is the possible treatment for this? Medicine that breaks the kidney stone or surgery?

Kidney stone: In a child, your doctor would direct you according to history, physical exam and imaging studies to detect the site of the stone in the urinary tract and whether there are any complications, e.g. Blockage of urine flow, check this link for more information http://www.

Could a 10 mm kidney stone be removed without any treatment from a doctor?

Could a 10 mm kidney stone be removed without any treatment from a doctor?

No way: Stone is much too large to pass ; can not be dissolved with medication. Best bet would be extra-corpral shock-wave lithotripsy (eswl) you need to see a urologist. Good luck.

I had pyeloplasty treatment for narrowing of the tube. Could I have a kidney stone?

Pyleoplasty: Repairing of a damaged or congenitally narrowed ureter that is causing or contributing to recurrent stones or urinary tract infections might be a good idea.

My 5 year old child has 7 mm kidney stones. Is it big? . any medicine to break down the stone? Can it pass naturally. What is the treatment

7mm stone: It is unusual for a 5 year old to have kidney stones. If the stone is positioned in a safe place, where it is not causing pain or blockage watching it may be the best option. A 7 mm stone would be impossible to pass. He should be seen by a Pediatric nephrologist and urologist. All the best.

Could 7mm kidney stone pass with meds and tons of water/lemonade w/o laser treatment/lithotripsy?

Could 7mm kidney stone pass with meds and tons of water/lemonade w/o laser treatment/lithotripsy?

Probably not.: Most stones 5mm or smaller will pass. A 7mm stone could pass, but may well not pass on its own. If you have flank pain, you may have an obstructed ureter and need to have the stone removed so you don't develop kidney damage or urinary tract infection.

My husband had his first kidney stone in 2009 and had a ct scan done that told him he had numerous smaller stones but after treatment with medication?

Dr. James Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:

Here are some. ..: Your Hubby's recurrent multiple urinary stones deserve a complete stone work-up with 24-hr study, electrolyte + Ca++, Ph +++, urine pH, etc. So to deduce possible underlying causes such as renal tubular acidosis, hyperparathyroidism, medullary sponge kidneys, etc. But, maintain daily U/O > 2500 cc & decrease oral intake of salt, red meat, & dairy...by 50%. So, seek pro-evaluation & counseling...

Left ovarian cyst hi, 4 weeks back I had pain on my left side. Initially, the doctors treated it as a kidney pain as I had a kidney stone (3mm) in my left kidney in june 2011. The doctors did the kidney treatment. I wasn't satisfied and decided to go for

I: I can definitely understand your concern. That is a long time to have pain, and it sounds like it has been a complicated situation. Initially you had the kidney stone that sounds like it was successfully treated, and you then had a negative ct scan. Now it is found that you have an ovarian cyst that is 3.5 cm. Ovarian cysts are painful. They can pop and rupture, leaking fluid into the peritoneal (abdomino-pelvic)space, which usually resolves on its own though it is quite painful. Most ovarian cysts resolve on their own. Please see a gynecologist in follow up to be sure that this is resolving. Some women need to be treated with medications such as hormonal treatments to resolve cysts (such as oral contraceptive tablets). If you have sudden increase in pain, fever, vomiting, or new symptoms then you would have to be seen as an emergency, but otherwise please make an appointment with a licensed gynecologist.
