Having very bad kidney pain. I had a cystoscopy left retrograde. What can I do besides taking percocets. It's hurts so bad?

Ureteral Colic: If you only had a retrograde without a stent, your pain can be related to some swelling where the ureter enters the bladder. This can cause delayed pain after the procedure. Increasing water intake and taking aleve (naproxen) twice a day with food is what I recommend to my patients with similar symptoms.
If there is a stent present then medications (?-blockers +/- bladder spasm medications) help a bunch. ...Read more

Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure.

Would marijuana help with kidney pain I'm having from a. Cystoscopy left retrograde?

Would marijuana help with kidney pain I'm having from a. Cystoscopy left retrograde?

Marijuana: Each state specifies different conditions as indications for medical marijuana use. However, I know of no states that would consider acute discomfort from a medical procedure to be an indication. It does have some chronic pain indications. So — would not recommend its use for this specific purpose. Please talk to your physician if your pain is inadequately controlled. Take care. ...Read more

I'm having very immense kidney pain from a cystoscopy with left retrograde. The percocets aren't working. If I go to the ER what would they do?

I'm having very immense kidney pain from a cystoscopy with left retrograde. The percocets aren't working. If I go to the ER what would they do?

See below: They will probably check for UTI (urinalysis) and check blood work, as well as a renal us or possibly ct to see if your kidney is swollen (aka hydronephrosis). Transient ureteral obstruction related to internal swelling can occur from time to time after procedures such as the one you had. It typically improves within 24-48 hours with hydration and pain control. Good luck! ...Read more

What procedures can examine the left ureter to see if there's a problem. I've had a cystoscopy done and also an ultrasound and CT done on the kidney.

What procedures can examine the left ureter to see if there's a problem. I've had a cystoscopy done and also an ultrasound and CT done on the kidney.

Retrograde pyelogram: A retrograde pyelogram involves a cystoscopy where dye is squirted up the into the ureter which becomes well outlined. However, with a normal u/s and ct scan there doesn't seem any need for this to be done. I would abide by the urologist' s advice in this case. ...Read more

Blood in urine on and off for a month. Had blood tests, 3 urinalysis, cystoscopy, 2 kidney and bladder ultrasounds. Still, haven't found cause.

CT: Some small calculi may not be visualized with ultrasound. They may not obstruct the kidney, but any movement may turn urine positive for blood. So before everyone throws their hands up and says " I don't know ", try CT. Best wishes ...Read more

Kidney fluid filled cyst stage 2 on CT could this be the reason for abd burning and continual URI since january will be having cystoscopy 2 weeks?

Class 2 cysts have no enhancement on ct. Small calcifications or septa(tissue dividing the cyst) are found. Cancer is uncommon as is pain.
Cysts do not cause utis, as they don't communicate with the urine stream. ...Read more

Can menopause cause traces of blood in urine and recurrent UTIs. Had cystoscopy and kidney ultrasound — both ok. Also, have stage 3 prolapse. I am 68?

No, but...: Menopause would not be related with trace blood in urine. To know more on blood in urine, go to http://formefirst.com/hematuria.html for more realistic detail. Recurrent UTI is commonly associated with a poorly emptying bladder, catheter insertion, coitus, etc. Pelvic floor prolapse is relatively common and may affect urine flow and bladder emptying. More?

I had a CT for my abdomen ache. A 5 mm calculus was found in the lower pole calyx of my right kidney. The doctor says I should get a lithotripsy done- doing cystoscopy in a few days. I have to travel Europe in few weeks. Second opinion?

Kidney stone: A 5mm stone in a lower pole calyx is hardly an urgent matter. These stones rarely cause symptoms. Cystoscopy is likely being done for an unrelated issue. (hematuria?). Still, eswl is the preferred treatment for renal stones in a non-obstructing position. ...Read more

I get hemorraghic cystitis when I get an uti. Had cytoscopy — red and inflamed. Dr. Also wants MRI of kidneys. Always have blood in urine. Clue why?

Other causes: When you had acute hemorrhagic cystitis it was documented by cystoscopy & you were symptomatic. But you say you "always"have blood in urine. Whether it is microscopic or visible to the eye it is still blood. This is why your doctor wants radiographic study because there are many causes of hematuria above the bladder which will not show at cystoscopy. Go ahead with doctor's advice. Good luck ...Read more

Hematuria: Although blood in the urine is never "normal", there are many possible causes that are relatively benign. Sounds like the lower urinary tract has been adequately evaluated. I would recommend a renal evaluation at this point. A nephrologist would be a good start. ...Read more
