I went to the hospital the evening of Dec 26 with severe pain in my lower back and side. I also had blood in my urine. The dr. did a ct scan. The scan showed a couple small stones in my kidney and several slots leaving the kidney. I went home that evening and had a lot of discomfort for about 6 hours and then the pain was intermittent for a couple days. My urine also cleared up in about 2 days. Today I had another spasm for about 20 minutes and more blood in my urine . Do you believe based on my description this is related to the kidney stones or is something else going on?
