How long after passing a kidney stone does it take for urine to clear any traces of blood associated with passing the stone?
Hematuria: It is variable. If the stone caused a good deal of irritation to the ureter, red blood cels may be detectable in the urine for days to weeks. Of course, there is always the possibility that there are more stones in the kidneys causing persistent blood in the urine. Have an x-ray or ct to assess for additional stones if not already done.

Kidney stone: A kidney stone that hasn't started its descent down the ureter can cause months of pain.

With kidney stones do you normally feel nothing until it hits you all at once or is there early signs. How long does it take for one to form?
All at once.: Stones may exist in kidney for long periods of time without symptoms. They form when urine is overly saturated with ions that form crystals. Crystals congregate and enlarge to form a stone. They cause symptoms when they scrape up against the lining of the urinary system or plug urine flow. Stones smaller than 4 mm usually pass without help, but pain can be severe and sudden. Read more

Will my 3mm kidney stone move faster since its in the upper right pole instead of lower? I have a UTI too. How long do you think it'll take to pass?
Not necessarily: The location of the stone with in the kidney in terms of whether it is in the substance of the kidney or the renal collecting system is more important than whether it is in the upper or lower pole. It is very hard to say when if ever it will pass. Uti may not be related to a 3 mm stone. I would consult a urologist for more of your questions. I can't say that your UTI is treated with antibiotics it may resolve hundred percent and for good. Read more
