What Is The Incision Of The Renal Pelvis To Remove A Stone
I've got a stone in the renal pelvis , but i'm in agony with it after having a fall could it have moved?
For yrs I've had a fasting glucose in the 90s.not diabetic. what would make it to drop to 69 after eating? Also 1 renal pelvis enlarged no stones
Post meal glucose: After a meal, insulin increases, and brings the blood glucose down, sometimes even lower than the fasting level. This is a common pattern in normal people. Also, a typical glucometer is only accurate +- 20%, so that 69 could be higher. Your glucose levels appear to be quite normal. Why are you testing? ...Read more
I had a CT and it showed i had numerous puncate stones in my renal pelvis and that my common bile duct was dilated by 12mm what do these represent?
Depends: Punctuate stones in pelvis are phleboliths and basically meaningless. Your cbd is a diff issue. The cbd can get distended with age but at your age that's to big. Also, if your gallbladder has been removed it's not uncommon to see the cbd get dilated. If not, you should have this finding further evaluated. A GI doctor can certainly help with that. ...Read more
My 61 year old friend discovered papillary cells in his ureter and renal pelvis. Should he take afinotib after the kidney and ureter are removed?

Surgery is the main treatment unless there is already spread of the tumor in which case some of the drugs like you mentioned(axitinib/afinitor) may be useful. ...Read more

Pyelonephritis: Although pyelonephritis may affect all areas of the renal parenchyma, the question addresses the pelvis. One can get papillary necrosis with some of the necrotic papillae breaking off and either obstructing the pelvis, or fragments (micro or macro) of material may appear in the urine. Radiologically there may be classic calyceal deformities seen. This usually involves both kidneys. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Bleeding: Cancer in these areas usually causes microscopic or visible blood in the urine. It can also cause obstruction to the outflow of urine from the kidney and cause kidney swelling (hydronephrosis). This then can also cause kidney pain in the flank area when the kidney becomes obstructed, similar to the pain from a kidney stone. If left untreated, these tumors tend to grow and metastasize. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually nothing!: They may represent PRIOR infection or tiny stones. They have no significance unless they are small stones in which case they could block (obstruct) the kidney involved. Knowing they are there is the important thing. Your Primary Care Provider will determine if a consultation with a UROLOGIST is necessary Hope this helps Dr Z ...Read more
