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:

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.
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
The liver is unremarkable. Gallbladder within normal limits. Spleen

Morrison's pouch. Images of the pancreas are unremarkable.
1. No cholelithiasis.
2. Slight thinning of the renal cortex on the right with fullness of

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.
