    quad's with kidney stone?

    seen my urologist a couple weeks ago, he found a small kidney stone but said it was not large enough to cause any problems.

    what type of problems did your stone cause?


    not sure if these problems are caused by the stone but i have increased spasms & sweating, feeling tired sleeping more than normal, cant feel lower back near kidneys but when i wake up my upper back is usually hurting real bad.

    what is the best way to get rid of a stone?

    ?

    My stone was perfectly shaped to plug the ureter so the kidney leaked like a basket into my abdomen. I had little abdominal ripple spasms initially. A couple of days later a raging fever.

    The stone couldn't be coaxed out so they went in surgically. 30 days in hospital, the last 10 I've forced them to let me go to work and come back to the ward at bedtime. But I had missed so many classes ( teaching CAD ) my contract wasn't renewed next term. It cost me the best job I'd ever had.
