Welcome to Health care magic forum.

There are few things I would like to know.
1) When were you diagnosed as diabetic.
2) Are your blood sugar levels under control.
3) When were you injured.
4) Any other health problems.
5) To grade your pain between 1 - 10.
6) Any discoloration in that area.

Your rash is reducing but as pain is still persisting I would recommend you to be examined by a Surgeon to rule out any internal injuries.

I have 1 stone in my left kidney in the lower pole that is 10mm. and 1 stone in the left ureter that is 11mm. I have passed around 12 stones in the past 10 years with little or no problem. The largest was 6mm. Can I pass the one in my ureter? I have consulted 2 urologist. One told me to wait 3 weeks to see if it would pass The other told me my kidney would be dead in 4 weeks so I should not wait. He also said I less than a 20% chance of passing the stone in my ureter. Both doctors have good rating on line but I am not sold on either one. They lack compassion and both think I am a high risk patient because I am heavy and have diabetes. I am on Vic oden and Flomax. My body mass is 17 so the electro shock treatment will not work. They want to use a laser and go up through the bladder. I am thinking I should do it sooner than later. How evasive is the procedure and how much pain will I experience? Thank you
