4mm kidney stone xray showed it at L4. I've had a lot more pain & haematuria & now buttock/hip pain. Does that indicate the stone has moved to bladder?

Moved somewhat: It is known that these stones will hurt when they move. Bleeding will also occur. Can't always tell where it is by the pain. The closer to the bladder, the more likely you will feel it in the groin area or back. The best way to know where it is, is with an X-ray . Hope it passes quickly ...Read more

I have concretion (sand like particles) not kidney stone, can it cause pain in the back, side, hip, urinary blader and penis area? How long it heals up

I have concretion (sand like particles) not kidney stone, can it cause pain in the back, side, hip, urinary blader and penis area? How long it heals up

Yes: "stones" in the kidney are not usually the large "staghorn" type people think of. You usually have to use a strainer or tea bag to filter your urine in order to capture the "stones." therefore, you certainly may have kidney stones. Until they pass, the pain may be there. There are other things which may cause pain in addition to stones, so make sure that is what you have. ...Read more

Kidney/hip/back pain 5 weeks after stent inserted due to kidney stone, am I passing it? (Stent still in)

See answer: Patients with ureteral stents should be informed that they can expect a "variable" degree of urinary urgency, frequency, discomfort/pain, and visible blood in urine. Younger pts tend to experience these symptoms more often. Urinary tract infection, migration or obstruction of the stent, or problems related to residual stones or surgery need to be ruled out for fever or persistent, bothersome pain. ...Read more

Diet matters. ...Read more
