I just happened upon your post today .. wow .. how are you now? It's been about a week. I've had stones that have taken up to 6 weeks to pass. The blood usually is from movement .. they cut along their right of passage :( But always speak to your doctor because it can be a UTI or other things, too. You may have micro hematuria going on all the ...

Are they considering doing uterolithotripsy maybe to retrieve the rest of the 8mm stone. I agree with the doctor's post above .. do ask your doctor .. Anything taken w/o his/her permission may not be good especially if the stone is infectious type. 8.0 mm could also pose a risk if it gets stuck and that type of stone is generally very painful with the ...

May I ask how they determined you don't have MSK? It doesn't always show up on a CT Scan from what I understand. I feel really bad for you .. I, too, have had many stones and some show up and others don't on the CT Scans and some are missed on ultrasound and pass 24hrs later. Ask your new doc about diet for the oxalate ones and maybe par...

I had similar but was with lithotripsy because my stone was embedded in my ureter. Am assuming yours is a basket retrieval? If you have to have a stent, that's when it stings I believe. I actually had my stent before the surgery, and had the stinging, etc. with the stent in place. However, you may have some pain in the ER depending on how the pro...

Did you take your med the day of the blood work on each test date? -- not skip any doses? Just a thought. Did your doctor use the same lab each time? They redid mine twice, not believing I became so hyper after an infection I had last year. I understand how scary the hyper symptoms can be when your doc changes around doses ... I had a hyperthyroid...

Please, consult with your local ER if you are in medical distress as Barb135 mentioned above !!! The symptoms one experiences from long-term hypothyroidism, as I understand, are quite severe and can be life threatening. We all need thryoid hormones to live .. if you aren't getting it from your med, then it can cause eventual death. C~ Synthroid 1...
