Brief Answer:
maybe the stone had passed out

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Severe pain moving to the front with nausea, with history of kidney stones, is usually seen in stone moving down into the ureter.

So chances are there that the stone might had passed out. Thats why it didn't showed up on the CT.

So assuming the stone is out, with a normal CT, there isn't anything left to be worried about. As other causes of pain in that area like appendicitis, ovarian cyst or tube conditions, are all ruled out with a normal ct.

You may see the urologist, but i believe there is nothing left for him to do.

Hope i have been helpful.

Regards,
Dr. Ashish Verma

I am on bio-identical hormones and my testosterone level has gone from 62 to 247 in the last 8mos. My GYN has finally told me to stop the testosterone for a while. I ve been having abdominal pain and now lower/upper back pain for the past 3mos. Had ultrasound last wk and it came back showing uterus is anteverted, small hypoechoic foci likely respresents fibroids measuring 8mm. As well as a 1.5cm right ovarian cyst containing some internal debris and a 1.3cm simple left ovarian cyst. Can this be a result of the high testosterone? And is this something to be concerned about? And will these go away on their own?
