Dear Dr, I had a recent surgery for a kidney stone (laser) my pre op list said possible mitral stenosis, would I be operated on or sedated undiagnosed?
"possible MS": The devil's in the details! If your preop list says "possible mitral stenosis", I presume you don't have severe MS. If you don't have severe MS, there's no serious risk of anesthesia or elective surgery. (If you do have severe MS, it should be corrected regardless of whether you have kidney stones and/or need elective surgery).
M south indian. During my kidney stone surgery though my penis I could hear that tik tik stone crushing sound. How do they do it? Laser technology?
Probably yes...: Today, most of stones in the ureters or inside kidneys can be pulverized, removed or passed through long scope with holmium laser effectively and safely. The sound you might hear most likely is such laser, but its volume is low so hardly heard with other machine going on around in operating room.

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've had 4 laser surgeries & 2 parathyroid (found nothing wrong w/parathyroid either time) and I produce kidney stones non stop in both kidneys. Wh?
Smaller is better: In one large study the passage rate was 78% for stones measuring 1 to 4 mm, 60% for those 5 to7 mm, and 39% for those 8 mm or larger.
Lithotripsy: Quite often stone can be broken up by sound waves applied externally and the small fragments then pass through the urine. Do discuss this option with your doctor. See this site for more info. Http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/007113.htm.
It depends: To make a generalization, it depends primarily on the size of the stone as well as the location. Anatomic factors may also play a role. Most stone procedures are not complicated; some may be if stones are large and/or multiple, infection is present, etc.
Size Matters.: If it is larger than 7mm usually either lithotripsy or surgical removal is indicated, depending on severity. If there is swelling of the kidneys the chance is higher.
Usually: Most stone procedures are fairly straightforward, but some can be very complex. If yours seems like a complicated case, do not hesitate to get a second opinion if possible.
Varies: Stone fragments may begin passing immediately. In some cases, depending on the location of the stone within the kidney, the fragments may pass up to several months after the treatment.
It depends: It depends on what you mean. If you truly mean no surgery then it is almost by definition cheaper. However, the hidden costs of observation are in the amount of lost productivity due to being unable to work or go to school, the costs of er visits to treat pain, nausea, and vomiting, and the costs of the medications which help facilitate passage and control pain.See 3 more doctor answers
