I had a Kidney stone a year and a half ago and lithotripsy was used to break up that 7mm stone. Then in March od 2012, I had a bladder stone and they hauled it out through my penis.
They ultrasound me regularly and keep track of my vitamin D level and calcium level and tell me I have smaller stones still in my kidney be small enough to pass.
I was peeing last week and thought I felt something go through me penis. For a couple days I had some shards of pain in my penis but not too serious and no blood or off color. It was the same kind of pain I experienced after they removed the bladder stone. Not sure if this is common for a male when he passes a stone?
It is a legitimate question. While I have never passed a kidney stone, I did have one lodged in my right ureter and caused pooling in my kidney...and infection. I had lithotripsy to break it up and a stent placed between my kidney and bladder. I have passed several small bladder stones and although I could feel them, they didn't cause any pain or discomfort.
Normally, when you pass a kidney stone, you will almost be screaming and sometimes vomit from the pain. (My father and a friend experienced this.) If the stone was passed out the penis, then the spurs on it could have scraped the urethra. It may be tender for a few days but should heal with no other symptoms.
OK, it happened. A day or two of a weak urine stream and slight stinging sensation while urinating...then today a short burst of blood then a clean urine stream.
Could it be I passed a kidney or bladder stone?
