I just had an appointment with my urologist. I had a CAT scan done would show that I had three kidney stones in my left kidney. He felt that he wouldn't be able to get everything with lithotripsy. He thought that they would be okay because where they were located in the kidney (not near the ureter). I've been having increased left flank pain, intermittent incontinence, and passing stones. Wouldn't it be a normal thing to have the stones removed?
