Lower back pain and abdominal pressure in groin area. Found few blood spots. Are these signs of passing a kidney stone?

Hello my husband has lower back pain yesterday all day & lower abdominal pressure in the groin area. he woke up today w/ a couple of tiny blood spots in the front of his underwear. Plus it hurt from his lower back across his chest & rib cage. Are these signs of passing a kidney stone , because he was told at the hospital last year that he has a few small stones. Thanks

hi there, there is a possiblity that he may have passed the stone out in his urine. The abdominal pain along with the low backache also favours the passing of the stone down the ureter. You can get a urine exam along with an x-ray KUB done for your husband and check with his previous x-ruy as to the position of the stone or you can also ask him to get an ultrasound done to see the position of the stone and whether it is causing any obstruction. Take care.
