In apr of last yr i was dx bya CT in the ER w/ kindey infection, hydronephrosis and 2 small stones at ureterpelvic juction. Tx w/antibiotics for a couple weeks. f/u w/pmd and he rec f/u CT in 3-6 mos otherwise no other tx needed.
Over summer i had on again off again side pain and I saw new pmd(moved state,militaryfam) a couples times for same side pain, hip under rib area and aches more with exercise and some pain with urniation.They tx'd as UTI with antiobioitics both times, July and Sept.
In Oct it got more bothersome, sharper pains so I went to ER, the f/u CT confirmed 5mm stone in upper rt ureter. Ref to urologist. The first one i saw f/u'd with KUBS for placement and said it was passable.In Dec i was back at ER for excruciating pain,right lower contraction like pain...of course same CT results, stone in same place...f/u with another urologist at same office in 2 weeks. In the meantime I have had all my records forwarded to the urologist. When I finally went in Jan 11, he said i needed surgery because it looks likes it's been in almost the same spot since last april and was 6mm+.
On Jan 23rd I had uteroscopy and they were able to break it up with laser and remove it, and they placed a stent. The 2 weeks I had the stent it hurt to urinate and any physcial activity made me cramp and lots of blood in urine. I had it removed 2 days ago. Doc said I would have continued blood and irritation for a few days. Here's the thing, I have no urinary pain and no blood since he took it out but i have the ongoing achey side pain again. I am so frustrated. I will give it few more days before I bug him again but you think it could still be just irritated? he showed on the cystocopy during removal the swelling of the ureter around the stent, could the ureter still be too swollen to pass fluids, could it be backing up agian in the kidney causing my achiness? How long should I wait to bug him again.
