Wife had sharp pain on left flank, took her to a&e .Next day did scan to show she had a stone about 7mm on right side in ureter, but pain on left.

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

4 mm stone in ureter . Symptoms bladder pain and spasms since early oct. On vesicare (solifenacin). How long shd i wait before cystoscopy? Will it pass with water?

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

I have a 5mm stone that is stuck in the ureter, just outside the bladder. It has caused mild hydronephrosis and hydro-ureter. I have no pain at all, just a slight "awareness" in my lower back. 3 questions. 1. How swiftly must this be addressed" days?

No rush, may pass: Most 5 mm ureteral stones pass spontaneously. Your symptoms are mild and you have had either a ct or a renal ultrasound & are under care so there is no immediate need for intervention. Urine should be filtered in case stone is passed. Studies can be repeated in 2 weeks, or sooner if symptoms increase, risk of renal damage is minimal. Stone can be removed later as needed.Ureter. ...Read more

Is it possible for a kidney stone to be stuck in the lower portion of the ureter without inflicting any pain? Mine appears stuck(xray), w/ no symptoms?

Yes: Eagle it is possible if the stone is not obstructing the flow of the urine. Some stones do not obstruct and therefore do not cause symptoms, but they can eventually become obstructive or partially obstructive so they are often treated if they do not pass on their own. ...Read more
