Pain appeared around prostate area few days after kidney stone came out. No fever. Blood was present right now clear. What could be causing this?
X-ray or CT scan: Stones are of different chemical composition. Whether a stone can be seen on a plain x-ray of the abdomen depends on the size of the stone as well as it's composition. A ct scan without IV contrast is more sensitive for smaller or less dense stones. Even a large stone in the kidney that has not moved into the tube that drains the kidney ( known as the ureter) usually does not cause pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have a fever of 99.7. Along with kidney stone signs and pain with urination. Have not had CT scan. What temperature is considered worrisome?
No specific temperat: Having a kidney stone or a stone in the ureter does not have to lead to an elevated temperature. If you have an obstructing stone moderate to severe pain in the flank or abdominal region with associated nausea or vomiting is common. Fevers will occur if there is infected urine present with an obstructing stone. Fevers may be low-grade 99 to 100.5 or high-grade 100.5 - 102. Suggest being evaluate. ...Read more

The blockage of urine flow out of that kidney would have allowed bacteria within the urine to set up shop and cause an infection. But the removal of that stone should help eradicate that infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Could I have picked up the bacteria causing my sepsis over a year ago? Kidney stone last week, its stuck, admitted after second er visit for fever,

Mostly they are entirely normal in the intestine, and it is likely you have carried the one that caused your sepsis in your intestinal tract for many years, perhaps your entire life. You'll probably never know for sure, and it probably doesn't matter. ...Read more
