How To Treat Kidney Stones?

How To Treat Kidney Stones?

Treatment for Kidney stones varies depending on the size and type of the stone or the symptoms caused by it. In case of small stones, medication and simple changes in lifestyle can be enough to treat it, but surgeries and extensive treatments are required if symptoms are severe. Following are treatment options for kidney stones: 

  1. Small stones with minimal symptoms: Drinking water: Drinking around 3 litres 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. 
  2. 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. 
  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. Extracorporeal Lithotripsy (ESWL): 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. More than one sessions of ESWL may be required depending upon the response. ESWL has side effects like blood in urine or bruising in the abdomen. 
  2. Surgical removal of kidney stones: Surgical removal of kidney stones is done with the help of a procedure called percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL). 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. 
  3. Ureterorenoscopy (URS): A thin illuminated tube called ureteroscope is used to remove a stones in the ureter (a tube leading from kidney to the urinary bladder). The ureteroscope is equipped with a tiny camera which determines the location of the stone which is then broken into pieces with the help of other instruments. It may require general or regional anesthesia
  4. Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery (RIRS): In this procedure a flexible endoscope is passed through the urethra into the ureter and the kidney. The stone is localised and is fragmented into small pieces with the help of laser. Fragments are then removed through the urethra. Usually a stent is placed after the surgery which is removed after a couple of weeks. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Urologist.

I am suffering with stone in my both kidney. Is it possible to treat both kidney in same time or these will be treated at a certain interval of days. Which is the latest technology you have at your centre to clear absolutely all stones frm kidney.

Usually both kidneys are not operated simultaneously. But in case the stone burden in minimal, rarely both kidneys can be cleared in a single sitting. Nowadays, we offer RIRS for kidney stones . It is a procedure where a flexible telescope is passed into the kidney through the urethra and the stones are broken with laser and removed, This technique helps avoid any cut on the body or on the kidney.

Your mother probably has kidney damage because of diabetes and Hypertension. Although the damage is progressive, it can be slowed down by strict diabetes and blood pressure control. Also avoid dehydration, excess salt and drugs which can cause damage to kidneys such as pain killers. Regular exercise and weight control are helpful too.

Know Everything About Overactive Bladder

Know Everything About Overactive Bladder

A problem pertaining to the storage function of the bladder that results in bouts of sudden, often uncontrollable urge to urinate is referred to as an overactive bladder. This condition which is marked by unconditioned or involuntary loss of urine can sometimes be quite difficult to stop. People who experience such a condition often feel humiliated and as such tend to limit their social and work life. Despite such, only a few are conscious that a brief evaluation can help them manage and overcome an overactive bladder. 

Mechanism of Urination 
During urination, the urine proceeds from the bladder and flows into the urethra which is located at the tip of the penis in men and above the vagina in women. As the bladder fills, the nerve signals in the brain prompts urination by coordinating the relaxation and contraction of the urinary sphincter muscles. 

Causes and Symptoms of an Overactive Bladder 
Primarily caused due to involuntary contraction of the bladder muscles and relaxation of sphincter muscles, several conditions can lead to overactive bladder.  

Some of them are: 

  1. Urinary tract infection
  2. Prostate disease 
  3. Neurological disorders like stroke, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord problems 
  4. Medications that lead to increased production of urine 
  5. Bladder abnormalities like tumours or stones 
  6. Constipation 
  7. Excessive consumption of water, caffeine or alcohol 

Some of the common signs of an overactive bladder are: 

  1. Bouts of sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate 
  2. Awakening at night frequently to urinate 
  3. Urinating more than eight times a day 

Problems 

  1. Urinary frequency, urgency and incontinence can be detrimental to life. Emotional distress, interrupted sleep cycles and depression are some of the observed complications of this condition. 
  2. Social life, work and personal life often suffer to a great degree with an overactive bladder. 

Thus, if you experience or entertain suspicion of an overactive bladder, you should consult a urologist for evaluation and appropriate treatment.

At a creatinine level of 4, dialysis is usually not required. If and when there is an indication for dialysis, the options are hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis. Both have their own pros and cons which you should discuss with your nephrologist prior to starting dialysis. Also, renal transplant is another option if there is a suitable donor and you r fit for surgery.

Dear lybrate-user, urethral stricture is a recurrent problem. Dilatation of stricture can help you for a while but recurrance is common. Endoscopic surgery is better. If that also fails, then open surgery is an option that can be tried.

The creatinine value is in nornal range. If you feel that you have pain related to the kidneys, you should get examined and get an ultrasound done.

A 8 mm calculus might not pass out on its own or with medicine. U might need endoscopy to remove the stone and that should solve your problem.

A ureteric stone 10mm most probably needs endoscopic removal. Dont think medicine would help in removal.

Your mother's poor appetite could be because of the ca breast or ckd or both. She would probably be best served with good quality regular dialysis and proper treatment of her ca breast.

A 7 mm stone in the ureter should be removed surgically to prevent kidney damage. Nowadays it can be done endoscopically. No incision/cut is required. And you need to stay in the hospital for a day or 2 only.
