KIDNEY STONE MID POLE

I have an 11mm stone in my right kidney that they found in sept. of 07 with a really bad bladder infection. At that time it was 2cm I was on cipro for 6 weeks. So I had eswl in October of 07 which only fragmented the stone it hurt so badly and the doc wanted to do it again and that is all he wanted to do so I went to a new dr. He did the Uro-scope in Dec of 07 and found nothing he said you must have past it. Two week latter in the ER it was still there and still causing pain. Its up in the mid pole of the kidney and it hurts. Every doctor said it should not hurt if it is in the kidney. My Dr is now say it could be stuck in a duct, can they do this? They analyzed the small fragment I passed after the lithotripsy and it was calcium oxalate and carbanite apatite.

THey should be able to see evidence of the stone using ultrasound or a CT scan.  The stone can be in one of just a few places. In the kidney, in the ureter (the tube connecting kidney to bladder), the bladder itself, or the urethra (the tube that you urinate out of). The place that it can really hurt is when it is in the ureter. See fi your urologist can locate it and help disloge it perhaps with another round of lithotrypsy.
