Restricted Ureter Kidney
Possibly: It depends on the degree of restriction.It takes only 10% of one kidney to maintain adequate kidney function, but its never a good idea to lose a kidney if you dont have to. ...Read more
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
?Reduce function: Narrowing of the ureter can be congenital at either end, ureterovesical or ureteropelvic junction obstructions. Narrowing can occur after passage or removal of a kidney or ureteral stone. Ureter can be constricted by retroperitoneal fibrosis or inflammation. Diuretic nuclear scan can quantify both relative function and degree of obstruction if present. Significant obstruction can destroy function. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
See below: Ureteral obstruction near the kidney can result from multiple things. Some are congenital, including upj obstruction, where an accessory artery to the kidney crosses the ureter and kinks it. Other obstructions can be caused by scarring (from stones, surgery, or infection) or from extrinsic compression from things like abdominal rumors. You should see a urologist. ...Read more
I have a pain in my kidney because of ureter stone which is 4 mm how can I fall this stone easily without pain?
Ureterolithiasis: Kidney and ureter stones can be extremely uncomfortable. The best way to start is to ensure you are drinking adequate amounts of water which will help you pass the stone.

HI, I have a 1CM Kidney Stone that's in my ureter. It's on my right side but I've not had any pain at all. How dangerous is this?
Dangerous: The ureter is blocked by the stone and it is causing back pressure into the kidney. If not relieved, the back pressure will destroy the kidney. You do not have pain because the stone is too big to move. Please see a urologist at your earliest. ...Read more
I have 4 "tiny" stones 2 in each kidney and a very small cyst. I get bad kidney pain sometimes. Can this be caused if stones aren't in ureter?
No: Non-obstructing stones or a small cyst will not cause pain in the kidney. Kidney pain typically results from distention of the renal capsule when the stones move into the ureter. Pain usually occurs during acute obstruction. Cysts in the kidney only cause pain when there is hemorrhage into a cyst or very rarely do they cause blockage of the drainage from the kidney. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have severe pain, but the stones are still in kidney? Is it ever possible to have pain w/ stones in the kidney? Narrowed ureter or randall's plaque?
I have a very narrow distal ureter and 30 years of chronic kidney stone disease. Recently I've been told I need a ureteral reconstruction is this safe?
Pass or obstruct.: A stone in the ureter may pass or it may obstruct the ureter. The likelihood that a stone will pass decreases significantly the larger it is, especially over 5mm. If the stone fails to pass, obstruction of urine can cause the kidney to swell in a process called hydronephrosis. Over time this can lead to increased risk of infection and kidney atrophy. Work with your urologist for options. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
