Ureteroscopy : This treatment for many stones involves using a small scope to look into the ureter (kidney tube). The stone can be either removed or broken up with a laser. After surgery there may or may not be a stent. This is a thin, soft plastic tube to keep the ureter from closing. Either way, you can expect some burning with peeing, urgency/frequency to peeing, mild pain in the side or blood in the urine. ...Read more

Could be: Kidney stones are certainly painful, and can cause inflammatory reactions and possible infections as they pass along the urogenital tract, thus causing discomfort and swelling, even after they pass.

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

Have pots. Today swollen painful abdomen and vibrating feelings. Doc didn't think aorta. Had normal post-viral echo 5 months ago but should I be concerned about heart failure? Or just kidney infection

Have pots. Today swollen painful abdomen and vibrating feelings. Doc didn't think aorta. Had normal post-viral echo 5 months ago but should I be concerned about heart failure? Or just kidney infection

Unlikely : Unlikely heart failure if recent echo "completely" normal, though sometimes diastolic function is either missed or not appropriately interpreted on echoes. In rare cases, hf presents with isolated abdominal swelling, ascites, though most often with concomitant symptoms of dyspnea wih exertion and lower extremity edema...Unclear about the " vibrating feelings". ...Read more
