Thread: Bladder stones

  1. #11
    My urologist suspects that I have uric acid stones because they show up on CT-scans but not X-rays and ultrasound. I asked if uric acid stones harbor E. choli. The answer was no. That has me puzzled because the last few UTIs have been E. choli. Removing the stones should help in general. But it still doesn't explain recurring E. choli. Comments?

    They didn't have any opening. It's now four days away.

    I know that 4 days can seem like an eternity, but it is getting closer. Hang in there.

    The procedure was done on Thursday. It went well. Had dysreflexia during it, of course. The stones were bigger than the doctor thought they were, but he got them all smashed, and removed from my bladder.

    The original plan was to do the procedure under anesthesia. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon the day before it was supposed to be done, I got a call from the urologist's office. The anesthesiologist said she wouldn't use anesthesia on me in a non-hospital setting, because of my injury level. Why she didn't check upcoming cases more than one day ahead, I have no idea. Anyway, after speaking with the anesthesiologist again and still getting a no, my urologist called me at 830 Thursday morning to give me options. I could wait another month, and he'd do it in the hospital, or we could do it under local that day as scheduled. I chose the doing it under local option, and that's how he did it. Case closed.
