Post twin ureters and stones

Hi all

Over the years I have had UTI's and from one IVP it was discovered I have twin ureters. Does anyone else have this abnormality and do you suffer from repeated infections and/or stones.

I have never had a urology consultation to investigate it even though the problems I have are always in my right side.

Hi Fudge !

I just had to add a little post on here to say I was found to have 2 Ureters in a Scan and my GP said it was quite a common occurence and nothing to worry about. Also I had a bout of back pain about 1 year ago , blood in urine, but a Cystoscopy?? was done and didn't show up any kidney stone, so not to worry .
If you are really concerned though Fudge, go and put it to your GP and ask Exactly the ?????? You want to know!!!
Put your mind at rest , it's not fair if you are worrying !!
I know of no one else having the " Twin Ureters" but these are just things we don't usually discuss or actually know about , eh?
Good Luck !. Belle xxx

Hello. I also have a duplicated ureter. It is on my left side. I had a problem in my late teens with it "kinking off" and had a really bad kidney infection. I am now in my late 30's and again having problems with it. I am having chronic infection and also have a huge ureterocele and ureteral stones. The only symptoms I was having was that I was feeling ill(no fever) and I had very slightpain in my lower abdomen and back. After several years of not feeling well, I finally got the most recent situation diagnosed. I would definetly recommend that you see a urologist. If you are having pain and think it is related to your dual ureter, you are probably right. I live in a large city and am at a major medical center with a specialist that deals with duplicated systems. I did not have much luck with a regular urologist. Good luck to you.
