Treatments For 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:

Small stones with minimal symptoms
1. 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.

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. 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.

2. 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.

3. Ureteric Calculi (Using a scope to remove stones)
A thin illuminated tube called ureteroscope is used to remove a comparatively smaller stone in the kidney or ureter. 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.

Hi, It would have been beneficial if you had told us since how long you are having this pain. I am assuming your stools are normal and regular. There are a few causes of right lower abdominal pain: 1) Chronic appendicitis / Grumbling appendicitis 2) pain due to hernia 3) muscle strain 4) Abscess in the lower abdomen or upper thigh area. Solution: please consult a surgeon for further assessment. You may need a CT as ultrasound sometimes is not the best investigation. Hope this message helps you. Thank you.

Many of antibiotics cause abdominal pain due to increased acidity and indigestion caused by medicine. If you are getting more trouble from current Tablets, you can opt Homoeopathic medicines for UTI. Homoeopathic medicines never cause any acidity, but also it will help yo speedy recovery. It is very easy and safe to use too. If you want detailed information about this you can contact me privately. Do not worry about your missing periods.  It is possible for a UTI to cause you to have a late period. Illnesses and infections can delay ovulation (the release of an egg from your ovaries), and this can make your period come later than expect.

Any cure for reccurent urinary tract infection from e. Coli? please suggest treatment?

Dear , there is always cure for recurrent uti provided correct diagnosis is made, correct medicines are given in proper dosages and for sufficient duration with proper instruction. Uti is not the final diagnosis. It is only the result of some underlying problem means it is secondary to some hidden cause. For that initially one has to undergo sonography with full bladder volume, bladder wall thickness and post void residual urine volume. If you are retaining urine after urination then uroflowmetry is essential. This should mostly give the diagnosis. If not then cystourethroscopy should be done then you have to treat the cause, similarly diabetes also cause and predispose to any infection like uti stilllife the cause is not detected then one has to take long term antibiotic therapy: initially full dose till urine test shows less than 5 pus cells followed by maintenance therapy for 3 months to a year.

You are a young person with small kidney stones. Most of the time these small stones pass by its own. Drink frequent water and citrus fruits help in prevention of stone. Please confirm on ncct kub about stones. Most of the times this size stones are not properly confirmed on ultrasound. Dietary restriction are not practical so eat normal balanced diet.

I have stone in kidney what should I do?
Tips for removing kidney stones:: 1. Avoid tea, coffee, alcohol, cold drinks, pickles, fish, poultry, meat, spinach, and chocolate. 2. Avoid sour, heavy, and dry food. 3. Increase intake of liquids like water, juice, soup, lime water lemon soda etc. 4. Be sure to drink enough water each day. Usually 1 to 2 liters of water per day is adequate. 5. Drink more if you are perspiring heavily, working outdoors, the weather is hot, etc. 6. Increase the use of barley, horse gram (a type of bean), ginger, and brown rice or parboiled rice. 7. Avoid suppressing urges to urinate and defecate. 9. Boil 10-12 basil leaves in 1 cup of water for 15 minutes. Mix 1 teaspoon of honey in it and take twice a day. Pls send ur USG report becoz medication for stones depends upon size number and location of stones and can be given after USG.
