Brief Answer:
Consult urologist for intervention and evaluation.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

I went through the reports you sent along with this query.

The report is showing two stones on left side one is in kidney and the another is in lower ureter.

And there is enlargement of left kidney due to obstruction of that side ureter because of obstruction.

The stones has to be removed or destroyed to relive the obstruction so that the further damage to kidney function can be prevented.

And ask the child to drink plenty of water to maintain a good urine output.

And child should be investigated for metabolic problems with tests to look for any underlying metabolic problem which will predispose for stone formation such as high calcium, high uric acid, and abnormal phosphorous in the blood.

Therefore I suggest you to consult the urologist for further management.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.

I went to the ER a couple of days ago thinking I had a kidney stone. My back was killing me and I as vomiting. The kidney area was tender. After they determined that either there was no stone or it had passed they sent me home. I still cannot eat and I found a tender spot on my right front about 2 1/2 inches along the rib line from my sternum that has a little bump and if I press on it the pain goes all the way to my back where I first was experiencing severe pain symptoms. I still have no appetite although I am no longer vomiting. I drink water chamomile tea and have a piece of toast to eat. that is about it since Saturday at 1am. Any clue to what I am touching that is so painful all the way to my back. Is this a virus? or something else?

My daughter has a kidney infection, but it is now going on the second round of antibiotics and it is not going away. She has severe pains in your lower left back and her stomach and last night it was up in her upper left back also. They did a CT scan this morning. But, she also has a bruise on her leg that is not going away, and this morning she has three more and headaches. I am just worried that this is more than a kidney infection or kidney stone like they looked for this morning.

My daughter is 18, 5"9" around 190lbs and has had only one medical issue that the doctor in the ER told her was a kidney stone, that was about a year ago. She just told me she has headaches every other day, nausea when she eats, gets dizzy later in the day and blood in the toilet with her bowel movements. This has been happening for the past two weeks.
