look though the pain of k stone is possible with such description .u always need to get it confirmed that it is due to stone or du to other reasons becoz the size of stons is small...or it has descended down in the narrow parts ahead like ureter ...in that case pain is excruciating.........if thats ur case u need to consult a urologist or a surgeon or even a physician may treat u medically

Just got my ultrasound results back and it says. Left upper ureter shows a calculus of size 14 mm which is seen approx. 61 mm distal from the PUJ region causing mild hydroureteronephrosis . I know it means I have a kidney stone. I wan to know is it serious or will it pass through urine and if I do have to go through treatment which one would be good.

I am 56 and have had scyatic pain and lower groin pain and pain on my left side at my waist in the back. I have all my female parts, (till two days from now) I went to Family Dr with symptoms. Oh yeah I am post menopausal also. He sent me for X rays, and an MRi. I have deteriorating arthritis/ The pain is more intense than childbirth (with no pain meds, I had for deliveries) . I asked him about fibroids because a year earlier while in the hospital with kidney stones, they found a fibroid that measured about a 4cm. could it be growing? he said prob not because I m post menopause and they usually don t grow then. At this time I was into my 3rd month of pain with no help yet. My FP said we can have a CT scan with contrast, which I did, It showed that the fibroid had grown to 5cm. So he sent me to GYN and he gave me several options , and because of other health issues I decided that the first two were to risky and have decided to have the hysterectomy, in a couple days. No one can tell me is the fibroid is causing the severe pain I am having so I have no idea if this is going to help my main concern. *the pain* . All of this brings me to several questions. Is this thing really growing or did someone just miss measure? (I have never been diagnosed wih fibroids before.. If it ( hyste) dosen t work will it cause me any other problems that I don t need. This pain has been at a pain level of 8 to 10 for 6 months now. pain meds aren t really touching it and I ve tried a steriod shot, steriod pack, muscle relaxer and pain pils (norco 7.5) do you have any comments?
