User :   Hello, I'm male, 30 and I've had a history of kidney stones from the age of 21. They are calcium based. I passed one very small (about the size of my first one that caused extreme pain) that I did not even feel about a month ago. I drink about 1500-3000ml of water and about 2000ml avg. Yesterday I was in heavy traffic and I was holding my urine longer than I normally would witch I think has helped in the past to pass them because I think it has increased the size of my ureturs and I've passed much larger & sharper stones. So yesterday, my urine was brown indicating blood (not my first time, I had it once before about a year ago with the worst stone) and today it was more pink. I've noticed that my fequency of urination seems to increase either before I pass one. The concentration is only about brown to pink. Could I have passed it already because the last time when this happend, it quickly followed up with pain?
Doctor :   HI,
User :   thank you for your time
Doctor :   Please give me a couple of minutes to read your post
User :   One other thing I forgot to mention
User :   sure
Doctor :   ya please proceed
User :   I have been taking maybe once a week an multi ammino-acid gel cap.... not sure if this triggered it?
Doctor :   ok,
User :   also, this is about my 7-9 stone
Doctor :   its the bladder not the uterus
User :   did i miss spell ureturs?
User :   I'm a male, so uterus here
User :   so no uterus here
Doctor :   uterus is the womb
User :   yup
Doctor :   its, expected to present like this when a stone goes off by itself
Doctor :   there might be a small scratch in the urethra which is bleeding
Doctor :   it will surely subside by its own
Doctor :   but drinking more water is a must
User :   blood in the urine from the traveling from the kidney or down the ureturs or both?
User :   definately more water
User :   I really hope it is not tumbling around the opening of my ureturs
Doctor :   about the pain fallowing i could not comment because it depends on whether there is any injury in the inner wall of the bladder
User :   not sure exactly what side it is coming from
Doctor :   I am sorry its not uterus its the urine bladder
User :   I've also been having much more sex
Doctor :   uterus is the organ also named as womb where baby grows
Doctor :   Having more sex do not harm
User :   not uterus, I said uretur, the small tube that connects my kideny to my bladder
Doctor :   it may cause irritation of the scratch since the semen have salt in them
Doctor :   ok, sorry
Doctor :   i get it now,
User :   okay, with your best educated guess, do you think it may still be in the kidney or the bladder because I have not had any pain, just minor sensitivity in the kidney area
User :   no problem
Doctor :   yes,
User :   yes to what?
User :   my question or it being in my bladder?
Doctor :   you not had pain cause i do not expect any injury to the bladder
User :   so what I'm asking is if you think it may have already travelled into the bladder from the kidney, because if so, I don't have to worry about the pain it it's already made it's way into the bladder
Doctor :   yes, thats right
Doctor :   if it was in the uretes you would have had pain for sure
User :   that's what I was thinking
Doctor :   and the ureters in long standing stones would have enlarged
User :   I really hope it is in the bladder and not still tumbling up in the kidney
Doctor :   bringing down the chances of pain
Doctor :   yes, i do think same
User :   thank you so much, where you from?
