Pain in lower left pelvic area, having kidney stone, basket removal done, still having the pain. Renal colic or ureter?

I hurt in my lower left pelvic area for four years before finally being diagnosed with a 2 cm kidney stone. (had exploratory surgery as well as partial and final hysterectomy , colonoscopy , etc before finally the kidney stone was found. ) Dr. Initially thought pain was not matching up with kidney stones because i hurt in my lower left pelvic area and not in the upper area where kidney stone was at. Dr blasted then removed via basket. Left a ureter stint with string for a week which was removed today. Now I am having extreme pain in that same lower pelvic area. could this be renal colic or my ureter or???????

Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you had Kidney stone and has under gone Extra Corporeal Shock wave Lithotripsy.(ESWL) followed by removal of stone fragments and D.J stent was puting renal unit.

You have pain in abdomen at the same site.

This is either due to urethritis that develops after ESWL and stenting the ureter.

Please take broad spectrum antibiotics like Cefotaxime along with urinary antiseptic like Nitrofurantoin twice daily and urine alkaliser thrice daily.and later on switch on to appropriate antibiotics as per culture report.

Ensure to drink more water to help to pass residual fragments of the stone if left in ureter.
