Yes.: Bladder stones can be visualized by cystoscopy. Stone removal, however, is more involved, requiring a procedure called cystolithalopaxy. It is similar to a cystoscopy, but requires general or spinal anesthesia since a larger rigid scope is required, and instruments to break up the stone may be needed. Very large stone may not be amenable to cystolithalopaxy, and require surgery. ...Read more

Have u ever seen a GB EF of 21%, nausea, occas minor pain & no stones or wall thickening improve with diet, liver support & discontinuing BHRT?
but often this is a chronic condition that will stay the same without removing the gall bladder. It is kind of borderline for removing it.....not perfect and not totally broken.

Still could be stone: The most common symptom of a kidney stone is pain, often coming in waves ("colicky"). Sometimes pain or burning or difficulty urinating, and as you note, blood in the urine. However, even if not seen, you can still have blood called microscopic, which is detected by checking the urine.

I've seen tea listed as a drink to avoid as it might contribute to kidney stones. Does this include green tea?
Controvertial: Tea traditionally has shown to be high in oxalate that can cause kidney stones. Green tea's oxalate content is much lower. But the medical evidence has been conflicting with some recent studies actually suggesting a reduction in the stone risk from even non-green teas! until the jury is out, stick to drinking water..No rx required and cheap! ...Read more
What organs can be seen by having CT without contrast of the kidneys to look for stones?Just curious what all organs were deemed ok...
All of the abdominal: organs that can be seen with a contrast CT are visible on a noncontrast CT: liver, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, etc... Contrast helps detect certain abnormalities within the various structures, sometimes the abnormalities can be seen only with contrast. So, the noncontrast CT visualizes all the organs, but the sensitivity is decreased relative to the C+ exam for detecting some abnormalities. ...Read more
When do I seek medical attention for tea colored urine lasting 3 days. No fever. I had a kub and cystology a week ago. No stones seen then.
Are you a runner?: Are you a heavy exerciser or runner? If so, when skeletal muscle breaks down it releases a substance called myoglobin. This is excreted in the urine and is called myoglobinuria. It colors the urine a pinkish color. There is a simple test to detect whether or not you are excreting myoglobin. There are many other causes of myoglobinuria, many are serious. I recommend you be tested for this. ...Read more
I am suffering kidney stone problem. It is seen in usg kub report that A 7.2mm right renal calculus with minimal prostatomegaly .What should I do.
Renal stones: are you currently having symptoms? If the 7mm stone is in the kidney you can have Lithotripsey to break up the stone into smaller pieces that will pass.

Stones are made in a specific PH environment if you change the PH of the urine you can change the formation of certain stones . ...Read more

Right tonsil swollen and a stone fell out. How long will it be swollen from the tonsil stone still? I've seen a doctor it's not infected, doesn't hurt
Even though there is no strep infection in the tonsils, it is likely that a short course of antibiotics and perhaps an anti-inflammatory such as prednisone may help with tonsil swelling. Alternatively, using mouthwash and ibuprofen may help.

3 months ago had kidney stone lefy side removed now I have soreness not painful on both sides of upper ribs would cat scan not have seen some else too?
Yes, but...: Pain somewhere is a body signaling something not right, which is caused by some sort of undefined chemical or mechanical irritation to the local nerve-endings of fibers. Kidney-stone-related pain is one, but not all. To figure any soreness or ache or pain needs to review the their feature, degree, and progress as well as their detailed sequence of events by doctor after history and physicals. ...Read more
Mild chronic pancreatits, not coused by gallstones or alcohol abuse. I do not drink and no stones seen in an ultrasound. What could be the couse?
I have a CT scan with a 3mm kidney stone, unobstructive causing considerable pain for over 3 weeks and have not seen a urologist. What should I do?
Stones: A few pertinent facts about kidney stones: 1. Stones 5mm or less have a 66 to 85% chance of spontaneous passage. 2. Non-obstructing calculi do not cause pain. 3. Stones can move in and out of obstructing positions. 4. A urologist can be helpful even if the stone is likely to pass spontaneously, by appropriately medicating pain and prescribing a medication that may help some stones to pass. ...Read more

...2cm shadowing stone in the fundus. No pericholecystic fluid seen. No biliary ductal dilation seen, the common bile duct measures 5 mm. Meaning?
Gallstone: It seems like you have a gallstone sitting in there, not really doing anything. It’s not causing an infection. It’s not blocking the passage of bile. But it could. If it decides to move, that 20mm stone won’t pass out through that 5mm common bile duct. You may want to at least have a general surgeon aware of this. ...Read more
