Hi: Did they give you an IV of anti-inflammatory medication (ibuprofen)? When I had my kidney stone (5mm) a few years back, they did a CT scan in the ER and was told that since the stone had moved out of the kidney and into the ureter, I was not a candidate for lithotripsy (another name for the shockwave therapy). I felt like I had to urinate but could not when they asked for a urine sample (just a little blood came out). The pain went away after a period of time while laying in the ER. I was then finally able to urinate quite a lot and felt much relief--no more pain. They let me go home and was to see a urologist on Monday morning. (This all happened in the middle of a Saturday night). Later I learned that the stone had passed into my bladder while laying in the ER. The super-duty IV reduced the swelling in the ureter enough so it could exit into my bladder. They had me use a strainer to catch it--3 weeks later. That was not painful at all, fortunately. My guess is that it is in your bladder now and it may come out on its own at some point. I wish you the best of luck.
I got a ureteroscopy and the doctor found NO STONE! crazy.he put a stent in place and said i mustve passed it.but i swear i didnt pass it! i was checking and they gave me a strainer.i didnt use the strainer all the time but i didnt see it or feel it whatsoever.tomorrow i have an appointment with the doctor to get the stent out.im having back pain that feels really hot at times.like theres a heating pad burning my back.thats about all the pain.but who knows if the stones still there or not:( ill see tomorrow i guess
