What can happen if i don't have a kidney stone removed from ureter?

What can happen if i don't have a kidney stone removed from ureter?

Work with your urologist for options. ...Read more

Should it still hurt to pee after the passing of a kidney stone?

Personally different: Stone-related symptoms should subside, fade, & disappear soon but with a widely variable pace depending how long, where, how the offending stone is passed. Most disappear almost instantly but few may linger over 2-5 days; so, it is ok as long as slowly but surely getting better day by day. If longer than usually expected, seek reevaluation for a true stone passage or something else still going on. ...Read more
