Need urgent advice on small kidney stones, want to get rid of them without operation. Please reply in pain.

Need urgent advice on small kidney stones, want to get rid of them without operation. Please reply in pain.
Kidney stones are formed from mineral deposits in the kidneys and even in the urinary bladder. Stones are usually made from minerals and acid salts .The most common cause of kidney stone formation is an increased concentration of minerals in the urine, due to less fluid intake. These minerals settle along the walls of the kidneys or the bladder and stick together to form kidney stones. Increasing your water or fluid intake in a day could help dilute the kidneys and the urinary bladder. It could also prevent the formation of small stones and may also help dissolve smaller stones so these may be passed safely out of the body via the urine. Increasing your fluid intake from 10 to12 glasses of water or fluids in a day could help as well as eating foods that have high water content. Foods like fruits, soups and teas are perfect beverages to choose. On the other hand, drinks like carbonated drinks, sodas and caffeinated drinks must be totally avoided. Homeopathy offers the best alternative non-surgical treatment for kidney stones.In the homeopathic system of medicine, one can easily remove the kidney stones naturally with simple homeopathic medicines. The advantage of homeopathy is that you can avoid surgery and it also cures the tendency of the body to form stones. This means that the chances of the stones being formed again are next to nil. Made of natural substances and completely safe with no side effects, Homeopathic medicines are given after taking note of unique individual symptoms. You can consult me online via Lybrate for further evaluation and homeopathic medicines. Your feedback matters. Thank-you.

At your age and with the medical conditions you have, you should be happy with the erections you have, harmonal therapy in your case is contraindicated as you already have a prostatic problem. Your prostatic condition may worsen with harmonal treatment. My suggestion is that you have to accept aging gracefully and try to adopt to the natural changes that a person of your age faces. If you are not satisfied with my answer please visit a urologist for further advice.

I would rank can notharis as the number one homeopathic remedy for uti when the symptoms agree to it. Can notharis has been a very helpful homoeopathic medicine in treating cases of utis in people who have recently had an attack of streptococcal infections. This medicine can also be used in treating cases where there is recurrence, which means that people suffer from repeated attacks of these infections. It is indicated when the patient experiences a burning pain while passing urine. The patients get a feeling that they have to pass urine very often, but can pass very less urine at a time. Each time while passing urine, the patient experiences a very bad intense pain in the lower abdomen which extends upwards till the belly button. There is a feeling that the urine was not completely expelled and they feel that still more urine is yet to come out. The pain is more while walking and so the patients prefer to be in sitting posture just to avoid the unbearable pain. Another important symptom that indicates the use of can notharis is that there is pain in the back on both sides of the spine. This region is very sensitive touch, hardly allows the patient to move. At times, the pain radiates down the urinary tract. The patient passes urine mixed with blood and sometimes they may pass frank blood. The urine is turbid and full of fragments. The patient feels very restless and uneasy. They also have an itching sensation in the urethra after passing urine.

I believe you should not be excessively concerned about residual urine unless it is more than 300 ml. If you fee like there is only" some" urine that comes our if you apply pressure after voiding is completed, you do not need medical help. The fact that you have a h/o multiple sclerosis since 2009 has nothing to do with your current problem. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

I am just married. My hubby wants sex. He tried for anal sex also. I felt pain when he penetrates in my anus. I want to know the fact with anal sex.

Anal sex has its disadvantages, it is painful cause it hurts a tight muscle ring and in the long term may cause anal incontinence, fissures and other injuries. The chances of getting infection are also high. Ask your hubby to learn more about such sexual practices before indulging in them.

Ayurvedic medicines are very effective in case of kidney stones. Mostly allopathic doctors also prescribe alyurvedic medicine like gokshuradi guggul for kidney stones. You can take shool gaj kesari two times a day. Gokshuradi guggul and punarnavad mandoor 1-1 tab twice a day. Pranacharya you through capsule 1-1 twice a day. Avoid green vegetables like spinach and tomato. Ladyfinger. Take 8-10 glass of water par day.

Large Kidney Stones - 5 Treatment Methods

Large Kidney Stones - 5 Treatment Methods

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. While some kidney stones pass out of the body along with urine, others can block the urethra and become painful. 

In addition to being painful, a kidney stone can cause permanent damage to your kidneys. Since large kidney stones are usually painful, they rarely go undiagnosed. However, if a kidney stone is left untreated, it could cause the kidney to atrophy and lower the functionality of the kidney. Kidney stones that are related to an infection can also lead to chronic urinary tract infections and damage the kidney through scarring and inflammation. This could eventually lead to kidney failure.
 
Not all kidney stones need to be treated with surgery. If the kidney stone is very small, your doctor may prescribe plenty of water and medication to treat the pain. With plenty of water, you should be able to pass the stone in your urine. Ideally, you should take plenty of rest until the stone is passed. 

Larger kidney stones may need you to be hospitalized for treatment. These are:

  • Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL): To begin this of treatment, a painkiller is administered. Ultrasonic waves are used to determine the location of the kidney stone. Shock waves are then passed through the kidney stone to break it into smaller pieces, which can then pass out of the body through urine.
  • Ureteroscopy: This is also called retrograde intrarenal surgery and is performed when the kidney stone is stuck in the ureter. A ureteroscope is passed through the urethra and bladder into the ureter. Laser energy may then be used to break the stone into smaller pieces to unblock the ureter. 
  • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL): This surgery is performed under general anesthesia.  It involves a small incision being made in the back and a nephroscope passed into the kidney through it. Laser or pneumatic energy is then used to break up the stone into smaller pieces and pull them out. 
  • Open surgery: Open surgery is performed only in the case of an abnormally large stone or abnormal anatomy of the person. An incision is made in the back that allows the doctor to access the kidney and manually remove the stone.
  • Retrograde intrarenal surgery: In RIRS, the scope is placed through the urethra (the urinary opening) into the bladder and then through the ureter into the urine-collecting part of the kidney. The scope thus is moved retrograde (up the urinary tract system) to within the kidney (intrarenal). RIRS may be done to remove a stone. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

You should tell us whether the sperm like substance comes before or after passing urine. If afterwards then you will just have to dry yourself well before prayers.
