The VA (W. Roxbury SCI Ctr.) has told me that I have had kidney stones for the last 2 yearly checkups, but I haven't had any obvious problems. I went through 10 days of cipro 3 weeks ago, and had crystal clear urine for 2 weeks. Then I started getting a bit of white sludge at the very beginning and a *lot* (3 to 4" in the catheter) at the very end of flow. The bulk of the urine looks clear, and not skunky but anything greater than 200 - 300 ml in the bladder makes me leak - especially at night (I usually cath at 300 - 400 ml). I also have no temp or other systemic symptoms. I don't depend on them, but Rapid Response strips show no readings far out of normal parameters.
I've been reading quite a lot of the posts on stones, and though I don't have any pain, I can sleep 12 to 14 hours a night. It does not bother me to get only 8 hours, but it's easy to fall back asleep if I don't have to get up.
Is it possible that the stones are the cause of the sediment and leakage?
Forgot to mention that I had a urodynamic study done 3 weeks ago, and everything looks good. Also, I'm T3/4 complete and 17+ years post injury.
