Bladder (Definition)

The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding.

6 weeks: It is always in your best interested to pass a stone on your own, but it is not good for your kidney to struggle to pass the stone for more than about 6 weeks. With the bladder symptoms it is probably all the way down to the bladder, but sometimes the last part can be the hardest for the stone.

They said my kidney stone is close to my bladder how long will it take for me to urinate it out? & is it normal for urine to burn at end?

Kidney stones: A majority of kidney stones will pass on their own. If you were told that it is close to your bladder, it means it has already traveled most of the way out. So it should be just another day or two. In the meantime to have some burning with urination is normal. If the stone does not pass after 2 weeks, you may need to see a specialist for assistance. ...Read more

Trble urinating.Get feeling of bladder fullness, & wen I go it trickles out slow & takes long time to empty.Causes for this?Child birth?Kidney stones?

Many possibilities: For a lady of 21, possibilities include urinary tract infection that feels like retention but the frequency & slow trickle are due to irritation when the bladder is actually empty. Of course recent childbirth could cause this due to local trauma caused by birthing procedure. Stones of bladder, not kidney, are possible though less likely.Meds used to decrease urine frequency&decongestants can do it. ...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 (tamsulosin)

Here are some...: If the degree of hydronephrosis - kidney dilation - is acceptable, you may wait and see with Flomax (tamsulosin) 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 more

Likely: It is likely just too big to pass but maybe with some Flomax (tamsulosin) or tamolusin and lots of fluids it may. Strain all urine and watch for any debris. Other options would be basket extraction and maybe lithotripsy. I hope it will pass. ...Read more

If i had my gall bladder out a year ago, is it possible to still produce and pass gall stones?

Unfortunately: Yes. In a small minority, stones can re-form in the common duct. Another even less likely possibility is that you had a small stone in the cystic duct or in the common duct at time of original surgery but was not recognized. If you currently have stone in the common duct, you need to have an endoscopic procedure called ERCP and sphincterotomy. Consult a GI specialist to see if you needit. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Known to urologists, some 85% of stone less than 4 mm may pass through ureter in 2 weeks, but not always. If a stone is stuck at a spot > 2 weeks without further moving, the odd to pass becomes less & less over time. But, if stone-related hydronephrosis is mild, renal function is fine, you're relatively symptom-free & willing to cope, watching up to 1-3 m is ok; few stone of 4-5 mm may still pass ...Read more

Ureteral stone: The size of the stone does not correlate well to the intensity of the pain. The nearly unbearable pain of "ureteral colic" is from spasm of the muscular ureter. Although 50% probability to pass on its own within a few days, a 6mm stone sometimes will get stuck and fail to progress. Usually after 5 days, i recommend having the stone extracted with a ureteroscope as an outpatient. ...Read more
