Question: Hi. It was found that I have a 1.3cm (oval shaped) uric acid kidney stone trying to come down the urinary tract and that caused severe pain and bleeding with urine. Since it was considered too big to bring down naturally, the Urologist then pushed the stone back closer to the kidney and put a stent between the kidney and the bladder to stop the stone from coming down. And I was asked to rest for a week and come back after three weeks to remove the stent and burst the stone using laser technology after the bleeding and kidney is settled. I was given Augmentin to prevent any infections.

Now 3 days after the procedure, I do not have any abdominal pain but,

1. urination is infrequent and blood still passes with the urine.
2. Also I feel the need to urinate all the time even though there is no urine to pass out which is a very uncomfortable feeling to have all the time.
3. Also I feel my stomach is feeling stuffed and constipated.

Please recommend any possible remedies and medicine to overcome the above symptoms.

Brief Answer:
Medication like solifenacin will help

Detailed Answer:
What your doctor has done is what most Urologists would do across the world.
Presence of minor amounts of blood should not be worrisome, but if your urine is very thick and bloody, you should see your urologist.
The presence of stent in the bladder is often a source of irritation and your symptoms are likely to come down with Alkalinization of urine.This is easily accomplished by means of taking Syrup of Citrosoda or its equivalent 3 times daily preferably diluted with water after meals.
Medicines like Flomax at 0.4 mg once daily after dinner will reduce the urgency and frequency, but if the pain or frequency persists, you can try Tab. Solifenacin 5 mg once daily (available as Vesicare). This should take care of the issue till your stone is fragmented.
You can use a mild stool softener like Lactulose syrup to ensure the digestive apparatus is back on track as well. Take plenty of fluids and avoid high calorie food for the next 2-3 weeks.
I am sure you will do well with these solutions. Let me know your progress.

Thank you for your detailed reply.

I also wish to point out that the urgent sensation to urinate and the pain that is felt during urination is not felt in the abdomen area. It is felt inside the penis (feels like somewhere in the urethra, underside). If it is the case will Solifenacin 5mg once daily or something like Roliten 2mg twice a day take care of the issue?

Brief Answer:
Stent in position will cause discomfort

Detailed Answer:
Flomax or Urimax once daily will help reduce the pain in the urethra. That is due to the stent, and will be gone usually after the stent is removed. Roliten will be of help for the bladder spasms and urgency.
Please let me know if you have other queries.

Hello, my name is Michael Boswell. I am a 22 year old part-time student living with my mother. I am writing because I have been to one gastroenterologist before, and they couldn t quite seem to find the answers I m looking for. At the age of 16, I started taking a weight lifting supplement ( creatine pill form) and the day I took 4 of them like what was told on the back of the bottle, I could already tell I wasn t able to hold in my urine, I couldn t even sit down for my football meeting because I had to go to the bathroom to urinate. I then struggled for 2 years through the remainder of High School with severe chronic pain , I went and saw my family doctor who then told me to go see a specialist, and I had two colonscopies and endoscopy done. The gastroenterologist agreed there was something causing my irritation, but couldn t figure out what it was. I had blood work done, and everything came back for Crohns Disease , and they then labeled me with IBS. I m asking for help because I m at a dead end, I still suffer EVERY day with some sort of symptom, whether it be irritation and pain in my stomach, or when I feel a Bowel Movement coming on the urgency that I have because I know I will not be able to hold it in...the medication they had given me worked, but with other symptoms arising. I was prescribed Hyosyamine ER 0.375 MG, and Paroxetine HCL 20 MG. I took them as told on the bottle, and I would RARELY have a BM through the week, but instead I would have one full day (Saturday) of me having to sit on the toilet. I have read that there are no cures, which is very discouraging, this disease or whatever you want to call it, has taken the happiness and normality out of my life, and has replaced it with anger and no hope. I am hoping there is someone that can please help me...
