User:actually sometime back in last week ..I was admitted to a hospital with a pain in the lower back radiating to abdomen
User:and after U/S scan and then fluroscopy....they diagnosed it as a kidney stone
User:around 10 mm
User:following day .....they did a Endoscopy
User:and told the stone was not seen during the procedure
User:either that wud have passed away
User:or it may be at a higher position in the duct
User:we have dilated the duct so...even if its there it will pass away
User:all this happened on monday and tuesday
User:wednesday i was discharged
User:and again friday i was feeling similar pain but very mild ..which i had on monday like in the lower back
User:so I went to the doctor asked him to do the fluroscpy again
User:the Radiologist claims that....there is still the stone seen at the SI Joint
User:...then I was worried and went to one other consultant ..
User:then he told first place endoscopy was not necessary they cud have done Lithotripsy
User:and then he also got the fluroscpy done.....there the radiologitst claims no calculi seen
User:then doctor himself did the scan on flusroscopy ...but no luck it was not seen
User:however ...I get such pain once in a while and have symptons like burning sensation while passing urinals
User:I am really confused ...
User:but I have a strong feeling that the calculi is there
Doctor:May I know your age ?
Doctor:And was a urine test done?
Doctor:When was it done?
User:last monday
User:I mean on 2nd july
Doctor:This was the first time you had the pain right?
Doctor:Let me brief you.
Doctor:Renal stones are managed as per the size of the stone and the location.
Doctor:A size of less than 10mm usually pass off harmlessly without any intervention. Your size of 10mm was bit concerning. However the second fluroscopy when you met Dr. XXXXXXX did not reveal the stones.
Doctor:This means, the stone has probably passed away.
Doctor:Though the stones have passed away, most often than not,
Doctor:renal stones is associated with urinary infections.
