Discussions that mention pyridium

Kidney Disorders board


My son is 11 years old, had reconstructive surgery on his right ureter (narrow and wide) last September. He was healing great, then a week ago he developed almost same symptoms as pre surgery - pain in right ureter and lower back.

This pain is moving slooowly down the ureter. His CT scan was clear. Doctor is stumped. Small amt. of bacteria detected in urine.

First of all do ALL stones (even real small ones) show up on a CT scan?

Second, doesn't this sound like a stone ?

If it is moving, does that mean it will pass on its own?

What causes stones anyway?


Am giving pyridium, advil, and - per doctor keflex.

Thanks!

Hi there!

Stones are build in the kidneys smostly from food consumption, do not give your son any food with small seeds like tomatoes, eggplants, bananas nuts, pop sodas, and water from the faucet, give him a glass of green coconut water every hour pure no additives, if you can't afford the coconut water then you can give him distilled water one glass every hour for 13 days and get him to urinate in a white container so you can see the stone passing if he has stone.

Good luck to you and your son.
