Kidney stone in ureter at bladder opening. 4x10mm long. What should I do too pass it? Taking flomax . Have pain in urethra. No side pain
I have a passing kidney stone, CT showed it in the lower part of the ureter. Its large 4x10mm long. How do I know if it has passed into my bladder?
Colic: 4x10 mm is a pretty big stone. The ureter tapers as it approaches the uvj. Only nerve endings are "stretch fibers, so obstruction causes the pain ("colic"). Even if the pain eases/resolves, the only way to know if it "passes" is to strain all urine/save the stone. A stone sitting in your bladder will not cause pain. Best to use a fine mesh aquarium fish net. You should be taking tamsulosin. ...Read more
My kidney stone is 4mm x 1cm long.Had it CT scanned & it has an inch of ureter to still pass thru. Is it going to pass to my bladder? Taking flomax
Here are some...: If the degree of hydronephrosis - kidney dilation - is acceptable, you may wait and see with Flomax since this stone has already worked its way down thus far although the very end of ureter is the most difficult point to pass through. However, generally speaking, a stone suck a the same spot for more than 2-3 weeks will become less likely to pass; then intervention to remove it is reasonable. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a stuck 3x7mm kidney stone in lower ureter(minimal/rare pain). Urine flows through. Can drinking lemon juice break up stone over time?
Depends on the stone: Depending on the chemical composition of the stone (such as calcium oxalate), lemon juice might help slightly, but probably not enough to dissolve the stone. If the stone is made of uric acid, lemon juice won't help. You may need lithotripsy (shock waves) or a cystoscopy to manually remove the stone if it doesn't eventually pass. If the stone is blocking the ureter, it could damage the kidney. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
