Hot & irritated feeling in lower back for 2 months on and off. Been to dr, says its kidney stone. Would the pain last this long?

Hot & irritated feeling in lower back for 2 months on and off. Been to dr, says its kidney stone. Would the pain last this long?

Kidney stone: A kidney stone that hasn't started its descent down the ureter can cause months of pain. The pain is typically an aching pain and doesn't resemble the sharp and severe pain associated with passage down the ureter. After excluding other sources of pain, your urologist can discuss minimally invasive strategies to treat the stone.

I passed a kidney stone less then a week ago and am still having a dill ache in my side. How long should the ache last?

I passed a kidney stone less then a week ago and am still having a dill ache in my side. How long should the ache last?

Kidney stone: Post passage pain could be due to some irritation/inflammation of the ureter caused by trauma from the stone passing through it. Absence of blood in the urine or fever is reassuring, but if pain doesn't resolve or worsens, notify your physician or urologist.

How long after passing (a 10/10 pain ambulance kinda) kidney stone. Can intermittent microscopic haematuria last for? It's day 3. No frank blood

I would allow: The "healing" of the tube (ureter) which was "scraped" as the stone descended into your bladder...A week to ten days is not unusual. After that microscopic hematuria should be evaluated!
Hope this is helpful

How long can nausea last after passing a kidney stone into the bladder?

How long can nausea last after passing a kidney stone into the bladder?

Nausea: Nausea and vomiting usually occurs during the acute episode. If you still have nausea is probably not related to the stone. You could have gastritis from possible medications they may have given you for control of pain.

28yr old husband was on flomax (tamsulosin) for a kidney stone 3 weeks ago. Now he can't last very long in the bedroom. Normal side effect and will it go away soon?

28yr old husband was on flomax (tamsulosin) for a kidney stone 3 weeks ago. Now he can't last very long in the bedroom. Normal side effect and will it go away soon?

Drug effect unlikely: Use of Flomax (tamsulosin) may enhance kidney stone passage. Flomax (tamsulosin) should not be affecting ejaculation after 48 hours from the last dose. Flomax (tamsulosin) has the potential side effect of delaying ejaculation. If your husband had that experience and was unaware of the side effect, it may have created anxiety which can be affect ejaculation, particularly premature ejaculation. Communication and education may help.

How long does it take for a kidney stone to pass, mine was noticed in february this year and its still there, as of the last few days I've had to urinate more than usual?

How long does it take for a kidney stone to pass, mine was noticed in february this year and its still there, as of the last few days I've had to urinate more than usual?

It varies a lot: It may take days, weeks, month, years or never for a stone to pass. It really depends on the size of the stone. Ultrasound waves can be used to break up large stones to help them pass. You may want to check with a urologist and have an ultrasound image taken of the kidney, urether, and bladder to reevaluate the stone size. Ct scan can also give information on the stone.

My doctor put me on rapaflo (silodosin) for a kidney stone, I have had retrograde ejaculation. My question is how long will that last after I stop meds?

My doctor put me on rapaflo (silodosin) for a kidney stone, I have had retrograde ejaculation. My question is how long will that last after I stop meds?

Not very long: Rapaflo (silodosin) has a half-life of about 13 hours, so it will mostly be out of your system within a couple days. And things will then get back to normal.

Not long ago diagnosed with kidney stone need help?

Not long ago diagnosed with kidney stone need help?

Drink plenty fluids: If the stone is sitting there and was found by accident, the most you can do for yourself is to drink a lot of fluids per day, at least 2 liters. If you passed a stone, you should retrieve the stone and take it in to your doctor so they can do a stone analysis. That will guide specific therapy if it is available, and it is good practice to drink a lot of fluids to prevent a recurrence.
