Was told I had UTI , taking Cipro, my descending and ascending colon is distended, my stools are small little bits, the doctor that prescribe told me I might have kidney stones , but need ct scan to confirm.

i would suggest you to visit a urologist.
you need to get your urine tested for microscopy and culture/sensitivity.A ultrasonography of abdomen and pelvis needed to check on upper urinary tract as well.
your constipation might be due to pyelonephritis leading on to some amount of ileus.
