Nephrolithiasis: May have passed the stone on the left, may be having referred pain, the pain could be due to something other than stones, the stone could have been missed by the imaging study. This question should go to the urologist evaluating the situation. Hope they are better soon. ...Read more

I have non obstructive renal calculi between 3 to 4mm. Will i know if it blocks the ureter? I get pain around twice a day which last less than a min.

6 weeks: It is always in your best interested to pass a stone on your own, but it is not good for your kidney to struggle to pass the stone for more than about 6 weeks. With the bladder symptoms it is probably all the way down to the bladder, but sometimes the last part can be the hardest for the stone. Unfortunately, drinking lots of water does not help to push out the stone. ...Read more

I have a stuck 3x7mm kidney stone in lower ureter(minimal/rare pain). Urine flows through. Can drinking lemon juice break up stone over time?

I have a stuck 3x7mm kidney stone in lower ureter(minimal/rare pain). Urine flows through. Can drinking lemon juice break up stone over time?

Depends on the stone: Depending on the chemical composition of the stone (such as calcium oxalate), lemon juice might help slightly, but probably not enough to dissolve the stone. If the stone is made of uric acid, lemon juice won't help. You may need lithotripsy (shock waves) or a cystoscopy to manually remove the stone if it doesn't eventually pass. If the stone is blocking the ureter, it could damage the kidney. ...Read more

Would surgery to remove a ureter alleviate some flank pain due to double ureters that may be blocked?

Reconstructive surg.: Pain associated with a double ureter is due to obstruction or reflux (urine backing up from the bladder due to ureteral valve malfunction) or rarely a yo-yo effect within a y-shaped double ureter. Likely needs reconstruction. Repair + removal needed to bypass the double ureter could be part of the reconstruction. Ask urologist to draw diagram to explain procedure. Get second opinion if concerned. ...Read more
