Bladder stone. Can it be seen and removed by cystoscopy?

Bladder stone. Can it be seen and removed by cystoscopy?

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?

Not better....: 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.
Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health. Many people do either option ...Read more

I have all the symptoms of a kidney but i haven't seen any blood in my urine. Could it be something else or can I have a kidney stone still?

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. If you have fever, the problem could be more serious as infection may be present. ...Read more

I've seen tea listed as a drink to avoid as it might contribute to kidney stones. Does this include green tea?

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. I am assuming you are not currently passing a 7 mm stone. You would be in to much pain to write the question. 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

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

Cryptic tonsillitis: 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.
