Diagnosed with kidney stones, but now having really weird urine

I've been sick since June 17th, with varying symptoms.  Long story short, I ultimately had an ultrasound and CT scan done.  They found a 4.5 cm cyst and 6 mm stone in my right kidney.  Two days ago, even with hydrocodone in my system, I was feeling stabbing pains in my right side.  Yesterday I woke up at 4 am with severe pain in my groin and it felt as though the pain was moving down my side.  I thought my stone was passing and was so happy to be done with it!  At about 3:30 in the afternoon, I felt something pass during urination and luckily it was caught in the strainer.  It was an oblong piece of what looked like a whitish-yellow mucus with some blood on one end.  I put it in a small bag to bring to my doctor in case there's sediment in it.  Since then every time I urinate I pass at least a small amount of this mucus, either in specks or a more liquid form.  My urine is cloudy, where before passing the initial mucus it was clear.  I have a small amount of occasional stabbing pain still, but feel significantly better since passing the initial mucus.  Have I passed the stone without realizing it and am now just passing what's left from infection?

I've never experienced anything like you are at the present time in over 30 years of having these stones. That includes times when I had multiple stones in both kidneys at the same time too. I've never had any mucus situations as you've described so I can't comment from experience on that in any way. I will tell you that when I've passed a stone, or stones, I've felt it most of the time (about 95%) and there was no mucus involved for me. The stone passed and it was over for me. The only exceptions were when I had to have surgical intervention, or I had a large stone pass on it's own, and in those cases I had what I call, "after shocks" or basically a kidney stone attack like pain that lasted no more than one day and the episodes of pain themselves were not as great as a real stone pain nor did they last near as long.

I would strongly suggest that you consult your physician and apprise him/her of this situation and get their professional opinion. Good Luck and please let us know what you find out.

I plan on calling my doctor today about it.  I've pretty much stopped passing anything, but my urine is still cloudy.  Thank you for your information!
