Are you supposed to still have pain after a kidney stone drops into your bladder?

Are you supposed to still have pain after a kidney stone drops into your bladder?

Pain should resolve: You may have pain when the stone leaves the bladder (in the urethra). If the stone is in the bladder but still blocking the ureteral orifice, you will continue to have pain.

I have 4mm kidney stone but can't decide between ureteroscopic or trying to pass it myself for a bit.Its close to my bladder but hasnt moved since fri.?

Ureteral stone: The size of the stone does not correlate well to the intensity of the pain. The nearly unbearable pain of "ureteral colic" is from spasm of the muscular ureter. Although 50% probability to pass on its own within a few days, a 6mm stone sometimes will get stuck and fail to progress. Usually after 5 days, i recommend having the stone extracted with a ureteroscope as an outpatient. ...Read more
