Info needed

I have been suffering from kidney stones for 8 weeks now. I did have an ultrasound and CT scan done. My results are as followed:

EXAM: CT ABDOMEN AND PELVIS WITH AND WITHOUT CONTRAST 1/9/2008
INDICATION: Right-sided hydronephrosis
COMPARISON: None
In accordance with Clarian Radiology policies and procedures, a
standard medication reconciliation was performed by the radiology
technologist, GR, CW, HM prior to the examination. No
contraindications were identified. The examination was performed in
accordance with the standard protocol.
102 ml of Isovue 370 was administered via intravenous access. No
significant adverse events occurred.
Serial axial CT images of the abdomen and pelvis were obtained.
FINDINGS:
Precontrast images show a tiny focus of calcification in the upper
pole of the right kidney measures 3 mm likely nonobstructing stone.
There are tiny punctate calcifications in the lower pole right kidney
seen best in the coronal images may represent small renal stones as
well. There is a small parenchymal calcification in the left kidney
measuring 2 mm image 41.
The lung bases are clear. The heart size is normal. There is no
pericardial effusion.
The liver is unremarkable. Gallbladder within normal limits. Spleen
unremarkable. Both adrenals are within normal limits. The pancreas
shows no abnormality.
Both kidneys show tiny low attenuation lesions too small to
characterize but may represent cysts. There is no hydronephrosis
identified. The ureters are normal caliber. Bladder is unremarkable.
There is no evidence of bowel obstruction. The appendix is not
clearly seen but there are no secondary signs of appendicitis.
Patient status post hysterectomy. There is pars defects at left L5.
Spina bifida occulta is noted.
IMPRESSION:
CT ABDOMEN AND PELVIS WITH AND WITHOUT CONTRAST
No hydronephrosis. Punctate nonobstructing right renal stones and
questionable punctate nonobstructing left upper pole renal stone.
This examination and reported findings have been reviewed and
confirmed by the undersigned.


RADIOLOGY REPORT

FINDINGS:

Right upper quadrant ultrasound dated January 7, 2008
Indication: Right upper quadrant abdominal pain
Comparison: None
Findings:
There is right-sided hydronephrosis, etiology not determined. The
gallbladder is normal in appearance with wall thickness 2 mm and no
intraluminal stone demonstrated. The liver appears homogeneous. The
right renal parenchyma is thin measuring 5 mm. The extrahepatic
common duct caliber is normal at 2 mm. There is no ascites in
Morrison's pouch. Images of the pancreas are unremarkable.

IMPRESSIONS:

1. No cholelithiasis.
2. Slight thinning of the renal cortex on the right with fullness of
the collecting system. Dedicated renal bladder ultrasound or
abdominal pelvic CT for further evaluation is recommended

I did go see an Urologist and he said that my stones were small and way up in my kidneys, which they could lay there for 10-20 years. He said there was nothing that he could about it. I told him that I was having a lot of pain and he said that I shouldn’t be I pain. So, he ordered an IVP. When I had this done the tech said that for some reason the dye wasn’t passing from my kidney to my bladder like it should. I go see my Urologist tomorrow for my results. I was just wondering if anybody else has had this experience and if so what was the treatment besides drinking plenty of water? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
