What is the difference in pain intensity between liver damage and kidney stones?

What is the difference in pain intensity between liver damage and kidney stones?

Considerable: Kidney stones can cause significant pain as they either block (obstruct) the urine flow and cause pressure to build up, or simply by moving down the ureter (they are often very sharp). On the other hand, "liver damage" (and I don't know what you mean by that) should not cause any pain. Gallstones might cause pain in your right upper quadrant but this is not liver damage. ...Read more

Found out a year ago I had an 8'7mm kidney stone, but I never passed it. What does that mean? What happened to the stone is this good or bad?

Depends on position: A 7-8 mm stone may or may not pass. If it travels along the pathway of urine it may block the urine damaging the kidney and may also place you at risk for infection.

I've had the Same, pretty small kidney stone for over a year and it will not come out. What should I do? Tried everything besides surgery

Stone removal?: It depends on where the stone is. If the stone is asymptomatic, you need not do anything at this point. Speak to a urologist to see if you can have lithotripsy (L) to break up the stone, using sound waves to do so. This will spear you surgery. If you can have L, and its presence bothers you, go for it. If not, there is no reason for worry. Good luck. ...Read more
