My 6 year old has been diagnosed w/ kidney stones, we go in monday for more tests. Now she has a 102.4 temp. Is this the kidney stones?

Maybe: Insufficient information to give a solid answer. Kidney stones by themselves do not cause fevers. But a urinary tract infection combined with an obstructing ureteral stone is a real medical emergency due to the risk of severe sepsis. Flank pain and fever together are a good reason to go to the E.R. Other symptoms? Flu? Seen a pediatric urologist yet? Call them for advice. ...Read more

Not really...: There is no perfectly proven means to facilitate stone passage from kidney through ureter into bladder although the combination of increasing fluid intake so to make more urine and taking alpha-blocker (with tamsulosin as most studied) with more upright positioning + pain control still remains the key regimen. For 4-mm stone, the odd for spontaneous pass in 2 wks is 75-85%. More? Ask urologist. ...Read more
