Dear XXXXXXX

Thanks for the query.

You shall need URS or PCNL for the stone in the ureter. It the stone is in lower ureter then the preferred treatment shall be URS and if it is upper ureter then it shall be URS or PCNL depending on the anatomy of the ureter. ESWL as an option does not exist for the stone in ureter. The treatment modality for kidney stone shall be decided by location of the stone and degree of hydronephrosis (swelling) on the kidney.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you

Regards

Thanks doctor for your reply . Stone is in the lower pole of the kidney with no hydronephrosis.

Dear XXXXXXX

You shall need probably PCNL for the kidney stone. However, for a definitive opinion you can send me your IVP films.

Sincerely

I had a stint put in my left ureter for a month to widen the ureter because I had a kidney stone block in that ureter. When the Doctor did that procedure they found a malignant polyp in my bladder and removed it. This was done in 2005. They never told me the polyp was malignant. I have to have surgery for a labrum hip tear and when I was filling out the paper work, the doctor asked about the kidney stones and procedures that I have had. They told me I had to be put on a strong anti-inflamatory and told me to contact my urorologist to make sure it would not damage my kidneys. When I called the urorologist, they pulled my file and asked me to schedlued an appointment immediately because the polyp in 2005 was malignant. No one told me this or called me for a follow-up in 2005. I am scheduled next week to have a cystoscopy. Since 2005, I have had over 20 UTIs, lack of energy, I have gone to the emergency room several times for abdominal pain, I have the feeling to urinate and then I only go a little, sometimes it hurts. I have had kidneys stones since 2005. Currently, my left kidney has two stones, but they are high in the kidney. My question is can a CAT scan detect the polyps in the bladder?

My Doughter has operated when she was just 8 months old "a reimplantation of ureters", her right ureter was dileted and opening of ureters ware on the neck of blider, now she is 3.5 yrs old. after operation she was not having a control on urine. Dr Harshad punjani is the uero pediatric surgen who operated the surgery he advice it will take long time to have control on urine, also he started Depsonil 25mg daily to have control. after that she has good control on urine, also we have visited one homeopethic Dorctor, she has also started a medicine on the same problem, but to find out how homeopeticn medicines are working we have reduced the dose of Depsonil to 1 tab after 2 days. but when she took depsonil, at that time she controls urine but 2nd and 3rd day her control is not that much as it is on the 1st day of having depsonil. My Question is how Depsonil is important to give her on daily basis or how we can keep a trust on Homeopetic medicines
