27.8mm stone pain and side affects.

Posted , 4 users are following.

so i was told i had a massive stone first they did a uroscopy which was crapy and didnt get even half the stone. It went from 27mm to 12mm then they did a litsotripsy which now i can sit around but as soon as i start working i get extreme lower back pain. as well as trouble using the bathroom. After the lithotripsy I lost feeling in my lower lip and have yet to regain it. this lisotripsy was 2 weeks ago last monday i woke up sicker then ever. just wondering if this is all normal. This is my first kidney stone l.

    Hello Peter..Those symptoms..the lower lip and feeling sick doesn't sound normal to me. Why not check in with your doctor just to make sure everything is as it should be. my gosh..what a massive stone! They are probably going to do another litho,as they seem to have blasted it in half. I would make sure you tell the anesthesiologist about the lip...could be a side effect of the meds used along with the general sick feeling. I have been told sometimes takes awhile after a surgery to feel up to par. Good luck and please let us know how things turn out.

    This does not sound normal to me.

    I had several kidney stones about 27 mm in total.

    A consultant urologist in Bristol removed them keyhole surgery in December last year and I am now fine, he got to them all thank goodness.

    If you are not happy you need to go back to GP or consultant urologist and get this sorted.

    Take care and keep in touch.

    So saw my doctor today. I have a major kidney infection. Which is the reason i am so sick. there is pieces of the stone left but he wants to wait till the infection is gone. then he said i should be able to pass them on my own and he will remove the stent. As for my numb lip it was a side affect of the stuff they use to put you under. thank you for your advice
