Suggest remedy for kidney stones which is causing back pain

I have a history of kidney stones. when i went to an urgent care the doctor saw a calcification in my bladder via xray. He also did an ultrasound which showed hydronephrosis. He put me on antibiotics incase I developed an infection. I saw my urologist and had another xray done which showed that the stone was gone. I am still having alot of pain on my right back/side and I am concerned about the hydonephorisis. I don t know if I need to go back to the doctor or if It s just sore because of everything it s been through.

Hello,

It may be due to Renal stone.

For stone, less than 4 mm get cleared by hydration therapy.

For that, you can take plenty of water and take soft diet.

In case of larger stones, you may require surgical removal or ESWL after Urologist consultation.

For pain, you can take tablet acetaminophen.

Take proper rest. You can take syp cital in case of burning micturition

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician

I have a history of kidney stones and I had lithotripsy for an 11mm stone on my right side ureter a few weeks ago. I had a stent in since August 3rd. After the surgery I removed the stent after a three day wait. I have had pain in my lower back and kidneys everyday since. It get worse when I go to bed. I have been waking up in the middle of the night with this pain. I do have additional stones that are still in the kidneys. I have not passed any blood, so I don t believe that I have an obstruction. After I am up for awhile the pain subsides. If I walk around in the morning the pain is also present. If I sit down for a bit the pain goes away. HELP.

I have a 4 year old daughter who has had problems for the past 2 1/2 years and know can figure out what is wrong with her. Her symptoms started when she was 2 years old and she would cry that her back hurt in her car seat, so we tried 5 different car seats and she still complained. Then it progressed to her back hurting when she would be runnin, playing and sleeping. Now that she is older she can describe her symptoms more detailed. She has a hot sensation in her back and feet, she has parasthesis of bilateral legs and incontinence of urine and stool and belly pain. She is followed by a Neurology, GI, Nephrology, Urology, Nuerosurgery, Orthopedics, Pain service, Pain Psychologist and know can figure out what is wrong. She has had 2 MRI (normal), 2 CT scans (normal), Lasix scan (normal), Nuclear bone scan (normal), VCUG (normal), ultrasounds (hydronephrosis), urodynamic studies ( abnormal- showed multiple bladder spasms), multiple blood test and urine studies ( 2 24 hour urine studies showed high protein and urea 3rd was normal but not 24 hour) and Upper GI showed gastritis. Any ideas??
