MaybeABladderStone: This question is best answered by a Urologist after he has spoken with and then examined you. Three months is just a little to long to have a problem like this, especially in a female. You say you don't think you have an infection. OK, But you sure are a set-up for one. Urine stagnating in the bladder is ripe for bacteria. You could have an anatomic problem or a neurologic problem. Who knows. See a doc ...Read more

Severe vaginal burning, ll quad pain, not uti, std, yeast, products or sex. Painful/difficult urination. Long endo history/ hysterectomy. Kidney stone?

Atrophy?: Atrophic vaginitis or desquamative vaginitis can cause the vaginal symptoms, as can other infections besides yeast, like bacteria and viruses. The treatments are all very different, so you'd need a gyn specialist to sort it out. As far as the llq pain, it may or may not be related, but it could be caused by a stone, or an ovarian cyst. But a kidney stone wouldn't cause vaginal burning. ...Read more

Some burning after urination & occasional flank pain 6+wks ago. Ultrasound revealed 5mm kidney stone. No urinary symptoms since. Considering radiation exposure is a CT scan necessary in your opinion?

No: If you are no longer having symptoms and your urinalysis is normal, then I think you already have the information you need. Sometimes a stone is not identified on an ultrasound, and persistent pain or blood in the urine needs to be investigated. Then a CT would be helpful. I am assuming that your ultrasound otherwise revealed normal kidneys, etc. ...Read more

What can happen if I don't have a kidney stone removed from ureter?

If the stone fails to pass, obstruction of urine can cause the kidney to swell in a process called hydronephrosis. Over time this can lead to increased risk of infection and kidney atrophy. Work with your urologist for options. ...Read more
