what does phlebolith mean?
what does phlebolith mean? my mother was in very bad pain and my sister took her to the doctors, ended up in emergency. short of the long of it. stayed in hosp for a few days. the spot on x-ray was 7mm. the urol guy disagreed with other drs. he had my mom do another dye test and his final word is that this spot is still there and he said my mother should be happy because it is just a phlebolith. she is not having any pain at the moment. could she have passed the stones and it was just a coincidence that this phlebolith shows up on the x-ray?
