Re: can a kidney stone cause a bladder backup?
mine had my kidney 100% blocked . yes they can cause kidney damage my UR said if he did not get mine out that I would lose my kidney. I still am in pain I had litho done Dec. 6th and that was 3 months ago. I only passed 2 tiny peices of mine so I am facing more surgery. My dr. said it was the size of a golf ball. I don't know he did show it to me on the scan though and it was huge.
In my experiance with it, My urine backed up in my kidney and I could not pee. then after the surgery I went like 20 times when I got home I started having problems . I ended up in the er 2 days later in so much pain I wish I could die. I had to pull my own stent out which was horriable. anyway at the er they had to put a cath in and I started peeing and could not quit, I almost peed the bag full. The stent had caused to swell so I could not go. the ur said that my stent was blocked and it was with tiny blood clots so that is why the urine could not get through.
anyway to make long story short, even after litho I still have severe kidney pain, I have lost 40 pounds since dec. I lost 26 within two weeks but a total of 40 now. some of which was fluid buid up the rest where I could not eat. Still have trouble with that, the only thing I want is v8 juice , everything has started swelling again so I don't know if I will ever get any better. DH does not understand, I have no strength no energy I am just so weak all of the time and so tired. I often wonder if it has caused more damage to my kidney than they thought
