I have a 5mm kidney stone. I'd like to know when, during elimination, will it be the most painful? Ureteter, bladder or urethra? I'm a male.

I have a 5mm kidney stone. I'd like to know when, during elimination, will it be the most painful? Ureteter, bladder or urethra? I'm a male.

Here are some...: If a 5-mm stone is inside kidney and not moving, you unlikely have pain. A stone of such size poses low odd for spontaneous passage, prior stone passage will help decide if worthwhile to act or wait. If act and it is visible with x-ray, shock wave may disintegrate it; if not visible or in ureter or still in kidney, holmium laser through urehtra and ureter is the choice, Remember nothing is free...

I have a kidney stone stuck at the very tip of my urethra about a quarter inch from the head it's been stuck there now for three days cannot pass it t?

See a urologist: You need to be evaluated. If you can not pass it, it can lead to not passing urine, which can lead to hydronephrosis. Not to mention pain and infection. In the mean time, drink plenty of water and if you aren't able to urinate at all, or pain is too severe, go to ER.

I saw something weird come out near my clitoral area. It looked like a kidney stone but was soft & nowhere near urethra. I had a kidney stone 1yr ago.

I saw something weird come out near my clitoral area. It looked like a kidney stone but was soft & nowhere near urethra. I had a kidney stone 1yr ago.

May be just smegma..: What described strongly suggests the presence of so-call smegma which is the "concrete" of solidifying the shed-ed skin keratin like that in the men with tight long foreskin. In females, its appearance is more prominent if the hood of clitoris is more pronounced. Just gently flush and clean it. And note: its unique smell is normally expected. More on life? To www.

Can you have sex with a kidney stone stuck in urethra?

Can you have sex with a kidney stone stuck in urethra?

If you can: If the stone is in the urethra the ejaculate might help lubricate things and get the stone to move. I assume that there is not complete obstruction? If there were I'm sure you wouldn't be thinking about having sex!

Yes: You are a very brave person to bare the pain of a stone without pain meds. If you have a stone and are having colic then seeking help is best option. Pain meds, IV fluids all will help. Feel better, best of luck.

Can kidney stone with 8mmx4mm in urethral (between bladder and kidney) dissolve with medicines.? Or any procedure is required. I don't have much pa

Can kidney stone with 8mmx4mm in urethral (between bladder and kidney) dissolve with medicines.? Or any procedure is required. I don't have much pa

No: If it is uric acid it can be dissolved. Uric acid stone does not show on plain xray but if you have history of uric acid stones, sodium bicarbonate to raise pH may dissolve stone. Most stones are calcium oxalate and cannot be dissolved. A stone that is 8X4mm is unlikely to pass on its own. Endoscopic procedure is advisable. Make sure you follow with your urologist. Best wishes.

I had kidney stone surgery Tuesday basket removal bladder and uretha exploration and lazer done still bleeding lightly now still clotting and in a lot?

Notify urologist: Some urinary bleeding is not unusual and is not worrisome if it's light and clots don't interfere with urination. Drinking lots of fluids is helpful in this regard. Avoid aspirin or antiinflammatories like Aleve, Advil which can increase bleeding tendency. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is ok. However if bleeding persists, becomes heavy and there are large clots, you must notify your urologist.

I have been suffering from urethral pain, urgency since I had a kidney stone pass 9/20/13. I fell & had a bad hip injury in october and had a cystoscope it was normal. Lots of back & hip pain. Causes

Medication: First rule out a urinary tract infection or bladder inflammation. If no infection, treatment with a medication for overactive bladder may relieve your urgency. Pyridium (phenazopyridine) is sometimes given to relieve painful urination. An orthopedic surgeon should investigate your ongoing back and hip pain looking for hairline fracture, etc. And, if indicated, ordering bone scan, ct scan, mri, etc.

I have a tiny kidney stone. I am experiencing a sharp, moderate pain in the pelvis and pain with urination. Could the kidney stone be causing this?

Yes: Hello, You don't say what "tiny" measures, but a small kidney stone may have passed down the ureter and giving you pelvic pain and pain on urination if it is stuck at the uretero-vesical junction (ureter-bladder connection point).A plain Xray will help. Make sure you strain your urine and follow your doctor's advice. Hope this helps and get well soon.
