As there are different types of kidney stones (asymptomatic, non-obstructing, obstructive, etc.), there are also different types of management for kidney stones.
If the kidney stone is not obstructive and is not causing any other pathology related to obstruction in the affected kidney, there will be no need for a ureteral stent.
If there is obstruction due to a larger obstructive stone resulting in hydronephrosis (increased pressure on the delicate kidney structures that may cause kidney damage), a ureteral stent would be put in until such time when the stone can be removed or broken up.
A non-obstructing stone associated with pain and hematuria will be managed with painkillers and antibiotics in the ER and may be followed up with diuretic (increased urine production) treatment to flush out a stone that is 5mm or less in size.
Additional measures include dietary and lifestyle changes to ensure that the stone is flushed out and that there are minimal chances of recurrence.
Do keep us posted for any additional clarifications in this regard.
at first you should avoid using Chocolate and any kind of artificial sugars.they worsen ovarian.
Common treatment would as the Doc.stated depend on the symptoms. Fluids would be administered, and some type of x-ray at the very least, if accompanied by pain. To find the size and location of the stone.
Stents are used to keep the kidney functioning and open if a stone is blocking or hydronephrosis is present. This will keep the ureter functioning. Have you had stents before?? Cara
