I guess I'm prone to bladder and kidney stones. A year ago I had one blasted and just found out at my annual physical this year that I have two in my left kidney. They aren't blocking the flow of urine and the larger of the two I'm told is 11mm in size.

A consult has been sent to my urologist who I assume will schedule me to come in and have them removed. My question is, if they were causing me pain, would it be a constant pain or could it be something that is killing me one day and barely noticeable the next?

I've been having pain in my lower back that comes and goes for whatever reason and wonder if it could be the result of those kidney stones? Or (I ask myself), is it more like the constant pain I have from my butt to my feet that varies in intensity and doesn't seem to have an origin?
