Just to preface this question I had kidney stones in 2010 two of which I passed myself about pea size and the pain was excruciating. The rest were removed by 2 surgeries in one they roved as many as they could and they placed a stent then I passed the stent and they went back in and removed the large stones they were unable to get. After all this the labs came back and they were calcium stones and I could of just had Lipo.
About 3months ago I started having that familiar pain in my side and back accompanied by nausea and a general feeling of fatigue and being unwell, I went to see a doctor who did a urine test (yes there was blood) ,some blood tests, and ordered an abdominal ultrasound. The results showed renal calcifications on both left and right and a 9mm cyst on the right kidney. I was sent back to the same urologist who had done my previous surgeries he asked where my pain was and I indicated my right side ribs and back and said yep that's your kidney,did a urine test and confirmed there was still blood in my urine,and ordered CT scan. That was in March to this day I have not heard back from that Doctor. When I finally called myself his assistant said the CT showed nothing and she didn't,t know where my pain was coming from but it was not my kidneys. When I asked about the blood,and the discrepancy between the CT and the ultrasound she was unwilling to discuss it. I asked for the Dr. To call me and clear this up she said he will not be calling you. I'm confused and still in pain and now it is uncomfortable when urinating, What should I do?
That is unacceptable. I had a urologist not follow up on a scan post surgery, and there was something quite wrong. Things like this make me so angry. If there is pain and blood, something is wrong and you need to squeak, whine, complain until you get answers (and unless you have to stay with him for some reason - fire this bozo)
