7mm Kidney Stone

2 weeks ago I was admitted into ICU for acute abdominal and flank pain, after blood tests and CT scans they told me i had a 7mm stone and gave me pain killers called "Arthrexin" which makes me so nauesous I throw up for the next 24 hrs so they gave me Pramin for the nausoua which means instead i have no warning when i throw up. They told me I would pass it by myself as at the time it was near the bladder> While the pain comes and goes its mostly the pressure down there that i can't stand it!

How long does this normally take, I've been putting up with the pain instead of taking the pain killers so i can still drive and go to work! Any advice?

Re: 7mm Kidney Stone

It takes as long as it takes, I'm sorry to say. Some of the stones I've had took anywhere from a day too 3 days to pass. Best advice is to drink plenty of water to help flush it out.

If the painkillers they gave you don't help and are making it worse, I would go to your family doctor and see if they can prescribe you something else for the pain.
