Hello
Welcome to health care magic forum
ther eare variety of methods by which you can get rid of this stone. Lithotripsy in which stone is broken in to small pieces ,which comes through urine.uretrorenoscopy in which again a small instrument is passed through urethra ,bladder & ureters to break the stone. Than A PCNL in which a small hole is made in back & stone is removed in piecemeal . Open Surgery is the last choice.
Wish you good health

I am from Dhaka, Bangladesh, age 45. I was diagnosed with stones in both kidneys. I had undergone a ESWL procedure for my right kidney. But now the crushed stones are not clearing up. Recent x-ray report shows the following - calculi are seen in both renal region, calculi are also noted at the right side of the L2 & L3 vertebrae along the line of right ureter, phlebolith is seen at the right side of the pelvic cavity. I am suffering from bouts of severe pain in the lower back and abdomen. What should be my next course of treatment?

How long is if safe to take OxyContin before it could start affecting my internal organs! I m going on about 3 years fir chronic pain. I just wonder, while it s helping with my pain, what is it doing to the rest of my body. I m also quite sure that I am dependent on it by now, so that worries me as well.

I m a 39 yr old, anglo-saxon, female (a out 30 lbs over-weight), and I ve had chronic back pain for over a year (around the centre if my back and the area near the spine and shoulder blade). It aches and feels numb . For just as long, I ve had severe constipation and right upper abdominal pain. Worse when breathing in. Occasionally, I notice bright, red blood on tissue after wiping after BM. In the last 2 months or so I have noticed black/dark spots in my very narrow, pencil-thin, stools (stools have been narrow for over a yr, also) but, now these spots are present. Other symptoms/details are: I m tired all the time, blood work normal (aside from Egrf {renal function} of 56), ct normal of abdomin (found burst ovarian cyst on right side), spinal MRI normal (bulging discs-Dr not concerned), normal ultra-sound, and normal colonoscopy. All these tests were performed in the last 90-120 days. My Dr is at a loss. I am in chronic pain and no relief for a over a year. No change in diet, pills/meds, stress(ers), or anything worth mentioning. I also have difficulty emptying my bladder during this past yr. I ve added flax seed to cereal, increased water, decreased meats, and generally just been trying to eat healthier . No real relief or positive changes. I ve had diarrhea only a handful of times in the past yr.. It is generally bright-yellow, watery, contains a lot of mucous , and burns like I ve just sh*t tobacco sauce. What other direction can I insist my dr take? I live in CAN and switching drs is next to impossible! Thank you in advance!!!
