I have a 22yo daughter who has been experiencing problems with multiple kidney stones. She has had at least 5 in the last year and 1/2, all but one required surgical intervention, although the stones were quite small and expected to pass. When the 2nd stone was removed, my daughter was found to have "double ureters" on the right. These ureters do not come together to form one going into the bladder, they are two completely separate functioning ureters. The problem: She has been experiencing almost constant right sided discomfort for close to two years. Her last episode was approximately two weeks ago, and she now has developed difficulty urinating. The stream is slow to start, and she feels as though her bladder does not completely empty. She also experiences a great deal of right sided pain while urinating. Her urinary frequecy has also increased. She has seen 3 separate urologists (due to moving) and yet we have no definate answers. There is also a chance that she has endometriosis. I am wondering if her duplicated ureters are exacerbating the problem, and if anyone has any suggestions as to the best way to proceed?
