Re: how can you tell if a kidney stone has moved
I will explain my situation and let me know what you think. This past Wed(Nov. 14) I dropped my husband off at work, and was driving home when out of the blue I got this pain OMG I wanted to die!!! It was to the point that I had a hard time driving. By the time that I had gotten home it had subsided, so the first thing that came to my mind was a kidney infection. Well I ended up getting that pain 2 more times that day. The next day I was fine, but I had a little discomfort and the same thing on Fri. Well Sat rolled around and I woke up and I felt that discomfort again, but this time it began to build and I was in that pain again(The kind that makes you want to throw yourself in front of a bus). I finally decided to go to the emergency room because by this time I was really scared and I had know idea what was wrong with me. Well 5 hours later another bout with that pain and they finall diagnosed me with a 6mm kidney stone in my right kidney. It is now Tues. and I have not passed it. The Dr. at the ER said to make an appointment with a doctor because she was not sure if I would be able to pass it. My main question is does every bout with the renal colic have to be as painful or can the pain range? Also, How can you tell if it has moved( I am still getting anykind of pain in the same spot). Will it be hard to pass a 6mm stone or will I have to go through one of those procedures( some people say yes and some say it might be a little to big to pass) Any info would help.
