Large Stones - How They Can Be Treated?

Large Stones - How They Can Be Treated?

A kidney stone may not be as big as the stones in your garden, but can be quite a pain. Kidney stones are actually mineral crystals that are usually a combination of calcium and phosphates. The size of a kidney stone ranges from the size of a sugar crystal to a ping pong ball.

Following are treatment options for kidney stones:

  1. Pain relievers - There might be a considerable amount of pain and discomfort associated with passing the stone through urine. Your doctor may recommend pain killers like Ibuprofen, Naproxen sodium or acetaminophen.
  2. Drinking water - Drinking around 3 liters of water a day will regulate your urinary system and can effectively eliminate small stones. Unless your doctor advices otherwise, drinking ample amount of fluids, usually water, is one of the commonest way to get rid of small kidney stones.
  3. Medical therapy - In order to eliminate the kidney stone, your doctor may administer medical therapy. Medication like alpha blocker helps in passing the kidney stone with least pain and more quickly. It relaxes the muscles in the ureter and makes the process relatively easy.

Large stones with severe symptoms:

  1. Surgical removal of kidney stones Surgical removal of stones is done with the help of a procedure called nephrolithotomy. It uses small telescopes and other instruments which are inserted in your back through a small incision. It is generally done in case of large stones and when ESWL fails.
  2. Using sound waves to break up stones In this technique, a procedure called Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL), is employed. ESWL uses the help of sound waves to create vibrations which breaks the stones in smaller pieces. This procedure takes about an hour and can cause mild pain and discomfort. Your doctor may administer sedatives to reduce your sensitivity. ESWL has side effects like blood in urine or bruising in the abdomen.

Respected sir You have not mentioned your age. I assume you to be over 50 years of age. Your symptoms suggest you might be having a benign enlargement of the prostate gland. Its a physiological condition in males over 40 years of age. Kindly get yourself evaluated by a Urologist, who will examine you and advise you investigations to corroborate the diagnosis and prescribe medication. Many advanced drugs are available now a days which can be used in the management of BPH. Its a treatable condition. Please do not worry Hope this helps Thanks.

Hi. Enuresis is also called as bed wetting. This is commonly seen in young children. When adults have this problem, they need to be evaluated in detail as many causes such as stress, anxiety, family isaues, depression can cause such problems. Avoid drinking excess water after 8 pm. Follow sleep hydeine techniques. We can consult online or offline privately so that I can assess you properly and give you treatment. You may also need to consult a urologist if problem persists.

Hello dear lybrate-user, Warm welcome to Lybrate.com I have evaluated your query thoroughly.* This is condition of septicemia from variety of reasons. 1. Kidney removal is only necessary when it goes in total failure not responding to medical treatment. Previously normal functioning kidney needs removal only due to complications of the surgery itself. 2. Intestines are different issues, need to be addressed pertaining to the case only. 3. To detect pus CT or ultrasound are both excellent tools, it does not require laparotomy for detection of pus, yes removal of pus requires laparotomy for sure. Hope this clears your query. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards dear take care.

Your report is normal .In general, however, normal creatinine levels range from 0.7 to 1.3 mg/dL in men and 0.6 to 1.1 mg/dL in women. High serum creatinine levels in the blood indicate that the kidneys aren't functioning properly. Your serum creatinine levels may be slightly elevated or higher than normal due to: a blocked urinary tract.

Drinking water is related with urination so if you do not drink water the waste or metabolized product will not come out of body normally 6 to 7 times urine normal but not yard stick it depends on intake of water and loss of water other means such as sweat excercise etc. My advice drink water daily as per need and do not put load on body system.

Kidney stones as well as ureter stones can be cured with medicines which are combination of herbal and homeo. We have specialized medicines for pain attacks named as emergency drops.

You need to take medicines that can help in removing them naturally such as our medicines combination of herbal and homeo that will help in removing stones. Kidney gets diseased due to an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. A kidney stone is a hard mass developed from crystals that separate from the urine within the urinary tract. Normally, urine contains chemicals that prevent or inhibit the crystals from forming. If the crystals remain tiny enough, they will travel through the urinary tract and pass out of the body in the urine without being noticed. You can connect with me and I will provide you with treatment by which you will be getting cured with kidney stones naturally. The medicines are combination of herbal and homeopathic only.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user. Your mother's operation 8 years back has very less chances of causing this urinary bleeding. Mostly it is a completely different issue and you will have to get this tested immediately. Please get a test called as Urine Routine and check for her Blood Sugar Profile. After which her condition can be further evaluated. Delaying is not advised. Kindly get these tests done as soon as possible and consult me privately for management.

Ultra sound scan report shows a calculus at mid pile of left kidney measuring 4.2 mm. Suggested medicine is contiflo. What should we do? Is this medicine used or not?

Well. Contiflo contains tamsulosin an alpha blocker. It is used routinely for benign hyperplasia of prostate. It has a role in lower ureteric stones and ureterovesical junction stones as it helps to evacuate them. However in a kidney stone it does not have much role. Your stone size is very small. Take lots of fluids and exercise. You can try cystone tabs. However I don't think contiflo has much role in kidney stones as such. Regards.

Hi It is not necessary that you have any disease due to which you are facing increased output of urination. You may be drinking increased quantity of water due to which urination does increase, as past three months have been the time of change in weather as well. But at this age there is no specific cause more prfound except diabetes mellitus. Kindly get your blood glucose level, HbA1c checked to rule out diabetes. Tc.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. While flying towards India, (going east words), take your oral antidiabetic tablets just before the food is being served or with it. If you are only on oral anti-diabetics then it is not so difficult. But if on Insulin then scheduling the dose becomes more critical. You may need comparatively a lesser dose (by a few units. Take the injection only when food is being served around, not too early. With oral tablets it is not so difficult. Since flying east words make the day shorter, dosage may have to be adjusted based on food intake. Thanks.
