Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits. The muscular layer that contracts during voids ...Read more

Trble urinating. Get feeling of bladder fullness, & wen I go it trickles out slow & takes long time to empty. Causes for this? Child birth? Kidney stones?

Many possibilities: For a lady of 21, possibilities include urinary tract infection that feels like retention but the frequency & slow trickle are due to irritation when the bladder is actually empty. Of course recent childbirth could cause this due to local trauma caused by birthing procedure. Stones of bladder, not kidney, are possible though less likely. Meds used to decrease urine frequency&decongestants can do it. ...Read more

What will be the symptoms when my kidney stone travels from the UVJ into the bladder? Currently pain free. Stone 4.5 mm x 11 mm at UVJ.

Variable: Stones near the bladder can cause urinary frequency and urgency. As they travel down the ureter, pain is the most common symptom. This is a fairly large stone at the most narrow part of the ureter and has a low chance of passing into the bladder on it's own. You should see a Urologist. ...Read more

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. Finally, the pain from passing a stone can sometimes take a while to resolve after the stone has passed due to inflammation of the ureter. If the pain does not resolve, follow up with your doctor. ...Read more

I have a 5mm kidney stone. I'd like to know when, during elimination, will it be the most painful? Ureteter, bladder or urethra? I'm a male.

I have a 5mm kidney stone. I'd like to know when, during elimination, will it be the most painful? Ureteter, bladder or urethra? I'm a male.

Here are some...: If a 5-mm stone is inside kidney and not moving, you unlikely have pain. A stone of such size poses low odd for spontaneous passage, prior stone passage will help decide if worthwhile to act or wait. If act and it is visible with x-ray, shock wave may disintegrate it; if not visible or in ureter or still in kidney, holmium laser through urehtra and ureter is the choice, Remember nothing is free... ...Read more

Can kidney stone with 8mmx4mm in urethral (between bladder and kidney) dissolve with medicines.? Or any procedure is required. I don't have much pa

No: If it is uric acid it can be dissolved. Uric acid stone does not show on plain xray but if you have history of uric acid stones, sodium bicarbonate to raise pH may dissolve stone. Most stones are calcium oxalate and cannot be dissolved. A stone that is 8X4mm is unlikely to pass on its own. Endoscopic procedure is advisable. Make sure you follow with your urologist. Best wishes. ...Read more

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 hasn't 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

What can I do to help pass a kidney stone? I was at the ER last night and they said it was close to my bladder & it could pass anytime soon.

A few things: The likelyhood of passing a stone depends on certain factors. Larger stones and those higher up in the ureter are less likely to pass. Some medicines like tamsulosin or Nifedipine may help and analgesia is often important. Staying hydrated is usually recommended although overdoing this with an obstructing stone could cause problems. It's important to follow up to assure that the stone has passed. ...Read more

Kidney stones in between bladder/kidney why so long to be removed been a week stint inserted can ultra sound be used?

Depends: The stent was inserted to bypass the stone and so relieve your pain.

Is it normal sometimes (once a year) to have sharp bladder pain after urination? Or is it bcause of kidney stones? (2-3mm)
