Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
The pain is not due to kidney stones (am assuming that your pain is in front) , usually kidney stones pain will occur in back & inguinal region. Since you are suffering from pneumonia & also injected with die, the pain may be one of these 2 or may be due to immobility (musculoskeletal pain) or due to gastritis. Mostly I suspect its musculoskeletal pain. You can talk with your doctor and can be relieved with muscle relaxants & mild analgesic.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon....
