For years Doctors have told me that I have a Kidney Stone. I know
that its been there for at least 40 years. It not blocking anything they
say. Why would I have the Kidney Stone Removed? Please have asked
why I don't.
Kidney stones are likely to cause blockage to flow and if large enough may compromise kidney function. But they are also likely to increase the chances of infections and can cause pain. Based on the clinical symptoms and the kidney functioning, therapy is planned.
This stone says its 11mmX9mmX11mm. Also says theres and a 1.4cm
cyst in the same kidney. What do you think? This was found during
a screen of my liver. Now that I read some of the posts... I think it might
be a good sized stone and should I address doing something about it?
