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.

Trble urinating. Get feeling of bladder fullness, & wen I go it trickles out slow & takes long time to empty. Causes for this? Child birth? Kidney stones?

Many possibilities: For a lady of 21, possibilities include urinary tract infection that feels like retention but the frequency & slow trickle are due to irritation when the bladder is actually empty. Of course recent childbirth could cause this due to local trauma caused by birthing procedure. Stones of bladder, not kidney, are possible though less likely.

Hello I a 44 yo male that had a stent (kidney to bladder for kidney stones) a week ago... It burns and itches constantly. And temp is 96.3. Is this no?

Hello I a 44 yo male that had a stent (kidney to bladder for kidney stones) a week ago... It burns and itches constantly. And temp is 96.3. Is this no?

It might be "forgotten"unless you ask. Then ask again. Your symptoms are probably skin irritation. But that's a set-up for an infection, so watch it closely. If on the outside, a little bit of steroid cream might help; on the inside? Try Benadryl (diphenhydramine). ...Read more
