Other than water, are there other fluids that could aid in reducing stones or assisting in passing them?

Had this done and talked to a radiologist on here but I just got this full report on the CD.

CT ABDOMEN & PELVIS, WITHOUT CONTRAST:

Clinical history: Left flank pain

Axial scans the abdomen and pelvis were obtained in helical CT
scanner utilizing the urinary tract stone protocol. 5 mm
contiguous scan images were obtained beginning above the level of
the hemidiaphragms and continuing inferiorly below the symphysis
pubis. From source data, coronal reformations were also obtained.
No oral or intravenous contrast was utilized.

There is no CT evidence of urolithiasis or obstructive uropathy.
No discrete renal cortical abnormalities are noted in this
unenhanced examination.

No acute appearing bowel related abnormalities are noted. The
appendix is retrocecal and extends cephalad along the medial
aspect of the ascending colon. There is a radiopaque density in
the small bowel lumen on the right side of the abdomen presumably
radiopaque medication or other ingested material.

Liver, spleen, and pancreas are are normal appearing. No biliary
obstructive findings are present; the gallbladder is normal
appearing.

No mesenteric or pericolic soft tissue abnormalities are
appreciated. No free fluid is seen in the abdomen or pelvis.

Wet read report submitted through the PACs system at 1312 hours.

IMPRESSION:
1. No urolithiasis or obstructive uropathy.
2. No intra-abdominal, retroperitoneal, or pelvic mass
abnormality or abnormal fluid collection.
3. No acute appearing bowel related abnormality.



My question is , is the scan good and not to worry because I read this "There is a radiopaque density in the small bowel lumen on the right side of the abdomen presumably radiopaque medication or other ingested material"


doctor1 MD

Hi,

Thanks for the query.

I have gone through your report. The radioopaque density in your bowel is most likely a foreign body - a medication. More importantly its inside the bowel and will either get digested or pass off eventually. So you need not worry about it.

These kind of radio opaque...

Dr, I am lax from india. My cousin is 50 years old male and he has been taking tablet for blood pressure for last 10 years and he is doing light duty job only. Six month before he was taken treatment for urinary stone in the hospital and with iv medicine it was cleared off. Then some time he was feeling pain and that was tollerable. so he was taking tablet and its gone.

Recenetly 5 days before my cousin was having pain in the back side and he was not able to pass urine. So he was admitted in the hospital nearby his home. Then there they took scan for checking any stone and tested the urea level. They they said urea level is very high. He was given medicine thro iv to reduce the uric acid level. but it was not reducing and become high. So he was shifted to another hospital to check with nephrologist. There they took scan,other test and they found no stones. They said one kidney is seems in shrinkage condition. after went this hospital he can able to pass urine. They gave medicine thro' iv to reduce the uric level for the last 2days, but the level of the uric become increase around 160 and the creatine leve they found around 10. So yesterday they said, first to reduce the high amount of uric level , he has to go for dialysis . Then they made dialysis (hemo) for him 2 cycle ( 2 hrs + 4 hrs) . Now he has been moved to ward from ICU and Dr. asked to give him light food like liquid type.

My question is , whether this decesion taken for dialysis is correct or not ?

Also this dialysis process is required for him upto when and whether it is required to continue further also or not. pl. reply in detail.



Thanks

Today when I thought I needed to pee a blood clot dropped in the toilet. I didn t pee, though. It was just the clot. I have done this twice since the first time today. Its like a burning urge and then when I go to use the bathroom the urge passes and the clot comes through. I also feel nauseated with pain in my right lower abdomen. I have body aches all over me and I feel weak. I have been sexually active for the past four days. I have had a past of cysts on my left ovary. What is this?
