I had surgery to remove 2 stones in ureter after surgery developed urinoma from ruptured ureter, stent in place for 19 days will rupture heal itself?

Injured Ureter: The ureter has an excellent blood supply thus much more often than not it completely heals. The greater concern is the development of a narrowing (stricture) . Usually a month or so after the stent is removed an imaging study should be performed. ...Read more

7.5*9.9mm stone is stucked in ureter. Can it pass without surgery?

7.5*9.9mm stone is stucked in ureter. Can it pass without surgery?

Not likely.: This is a relatively big stone. I have seen stones like this pass but it is very painful. Urologists are using lasers or ultrasound to help break up the stones to make them smaller so they pass without difficulty. I suggest you talk to a urologist and see what they have to offer. ...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

Echogenic calculus of size 3mm noted in lower calyx. echogenic calculus of size 5mm noted in the mid ureter. Taking drotin DS now. Is surgery required?

Echogenic calculus of size 3mm noted in lower calyx. echogenic calculus of size 5mm noted in the mid ureter.
Taking drotin DS now. Is surgery required?

Not necessarily: Surgery, usually endoscopic (using "scopes"), is only needed if stone is causing pain, too big to pass (usually >or= to 5 mm), or associated with blockage of ureter(blocking flow of urine) or associated urine infection. Most likely if stone is free in calyx it will pass on its own. If attached it may or may not cause symptoms. If no sxs may watch. Follow up with primary MD and/ or urologist. ...Read more
