I have kidney stones, and use a urinary catheter. I'm plagued with uti's and I'm only urinating 200ml per day. Could this be caused by the stones?

I have kidney stones, and use a urinary catheter. I'm plagued with uti's and I'm only urinating 200ml per day. Could this be caused by the stones?

Low urine: Low urine flow per day will enable and promote stones. A stone may be blocking a ureter and limit urine flow. UTI can enable stones, particularly mixed ammonia-calcium-phosphate stones and staghorn stones. Nephrocalcinosis can develop in this setting too. If you drink more, will you make more urine? This will help. ...Read more

What to do if I have an kidney stone & a double-j stent. directly after peeing, the kidney hurts some. is it stone or stent?

Here is ...: This phenomenon usually results from the presence of stent, which induces a jeking-effect to kidney while its lower end may touch the bladder neck & sequentially transmit such irritation at the end of each urination. Such undesirable effect may ease by changing to a stent of more suitable length, but clinically maybe unnecessary because the timing for such change and a following procedures is same ...Read more

I had a kidney stone and a double-j stent. after some work on the car I pee blood. is that normal?

Blood in urine: Any blood in the urine is not normal. However, after stone removal and double stent, some blood in the urine may simply reflect bruising and trauma. I think a look to see if a stone remnant might still be lingering is a good thing to do. Ultrasound can be a sufficient test. Be sure you drink 3 liters of fluid per day. Be sure you drink lots of lemonade and lemon extract. ...Read more

Possibly: Lithotripsy's results depend on the size and location of the stones along the urinary tract. However, equally importantly, you need to be investigated to figure out why you are having recurrent stones, and take appropriate measures like increased water intake (and, possibly other medications) that should reduce your risk of future stones. ...Read more
