My husband started having pain in his abdomen Sunday afternoon

My husband started having pain in his abdomen Sunday afternoon about 4. Within a couple of hours we were pretty sure it was kidney stones. He has had them 2 times before. I took him to the emergency room because he was in severe pain. They gave him pain meds, checked his urine and did a Cat Scan. It took 2 doses of the pain meds to relieve his pain to a tolerable level. The Cat Scan showed a 2cm stone passing in the ureter up fairly high. Also there was blood in his urine. They gave him a Rx for pain and Flo Max. He was fairly comfortably most of the day Monday and on Tuesday I took him to see a Urologist. He checked all the tests from the hospital and said as did the ER Doctor that a stone that size should pass without any problems. He has been taking the pain med every 6 hours. He is now in severe pain again even after a pill at four and took another at 6:30 because of the pain. Is this normal or should I contact a doctor again?

I have Ostio Arth in both hands (have had the right thumb joint replaced and need the left one done -- too much pain involved so that will never happen, lol), both hands are in terrible pain 24/7. I have a reconstructed left ankle which is also pain 24/7. I have been diagnosed with arth pretty much in all joints and live in pain pretty much all the time. These things I have learned to live with and try not to complian. My question is this: for the past few months I have been having days where I have pain at a level of about 9 (of 10) in ALL my bones, often to the point where I can barely walk. For instance this past Friday I was in bearable shape and was able to do a little about the house. On Sat when I woke up I was stiff and felt as though I had been beaten, they by Sunday I was barely able to walk, pain which brought me to tears in all bones in my body but none extra in my joints. I joked with my husband and told him he must have beaten my during the night because even my ribs were hurting. By Mon afternoon I felt a little better and was able to get out of bed and was able to walk around. Today I feel better than the day before but this cycle has happened about 5 times in the past 2 months. I have started writing it all down to give my Dr at my next visit (2 weeks from now). In the meantime I have been trying to research it but haven t had much luck in which direction to look. I have no lesions, I do have swelling in my joints during this time when I usually don t have a lot of swelling just pain other days. If you can lead me in the right direction I would be so appreciative. Carol
